Top seed Rafael Nadal defeated his Czech opponent Jiri Vesely in straight sets to advance to the quarter-finals of the Hamburg Open on Thursday.

The 14-time Grand Slam champion overcame Vesely 6-4, 7-6 (2) in the second round contest that lasted two hours and 11 minutes.

Although Nadal eventually prevailed over Vesely in a topsy-turvy affair, the Spaniard was clearly struggling to regain past form.

Nadal will next face fifth seed Pablo Cuevas, who ousted Jerzy Janowicz 6-3, 4-6, 6-2, to book a semi-final berth.
