Rafa in good form in Rome

9:28 am on 29 April 2010

A ruthless Rafa Nadal showed he's primed to win back his beloved French Open tennis crown from Roger Federer when he whipped Germany's Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-1 6-3 in his opening match at the Rome Masters.

A day after the world number one had been felled at his first hurdle by Latvian Ernests Gulbis, Nadal left Kohlschreiber scrambling for answers as he began his charge towards a fifth Rome title in six years.

OUT:...victory yeh.

DUR:...12 secs

meanwhile Australian Lleyton Hewitt was beaten in the second round in straight sets by Spain's Guillermo Garcia-Lopez.
