NEW YORK (AP) - Rafael Nadal crushed another opponent at the U.S. Open, beating Ivan Dodig 6-4, 6-3, 6-3 in the third round Saturday.
The second-seeded Spaniard has lost just 21 games through three matches. He has faced only five break points, saving each one of them.
The 38th-ranked Dodig beat Nadal at the hard-court tournament in Montreal two years ago. But Nadal is looking like the king of hard courts these days, with an 18-match winning streak on the surface.
He closed out the victory with a service winner to win the last game at love.
