Rafael Nadal made a triumphant singles return after a seven-month absence, beating qualifier Federico Delbonis 6-3, 6-2 in the second round of the ATP claycourt tournament here.
"I'm happy to play a singles match after so long," Nadal said. "I need days and time to get my game back, but so far the feeling on court is great.
"For now the most important thing is to spend as much time as possible on court. This victory allows me to play at least two more matches, singles and doubles."
