Rafa played better than he did in the first round, which was expected. He still has a few gears left to go up if it is called for. When Igor slipped in the first set, I thought Rafa was going to get a walkover, but fortunately andreev got up. He got pretty much outplayed in the first set. The second set was more competitive but Igor could not challenge Nadal on his serve and Nadal pretty much controlled the rallies. I don't think Andreev faced a break point opportunity against Nadal. In the tiebreak Rafa was too strong. Well done to Andreev and congrats to Nadal for reaching the quarters.
btw, just curious, is there an airport nearby these courts? Hear airplanes passing by way too often.
