Rio de Janeiro - World number one Rafael Nadal shrugged off the injury
concerns that wrecked his Australian Open bid as he dismantled Ukraine's
Alexandr Dolgopolov 6-3, 7-6 (7/3) to win the Rio Open on Sunday.
Nadal went into the match with a 4-0 winning record against Dolgopolov with
the Ukrainian never having even broken the world number one's service.
Nara, ranked 62nd in the world before the tournament started, will climb
into the top 50 when the new rankings are published on Monday.
