World no.1 Rafael Nadal tore apart Uzbekistan's Denis Istomin 6-1, 6-0 to reach the round four of the Miami Sony Open 2014. The Spaniard is now hopeful of finally winning the title, after ending up on the losing end of a final three times in the competition.
"I played a very complete match," a confident Nadal said. "No match is perfect but I did a lot of things very well. No mistakes, serving with good percentage, and playing a lot of winners. My movements were better than what I did last events."
The top seed will face Italian Fabio Fognini in the fourth round on Tuesday. "He has an amazing talent. Great forehand, great backhand, he's able to hit winners from every part of the court," Nadal said about the 14th seed. "He's an opponent sometimes that can be unpredictable, and it's difficult to play against these kind of players, especially when they are playing well and Fognini is playing well."
Stadium court will also see three other top players - Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Andy Murrary - in action on Tuesday.

Djokovic will face Tommy Robredo, after being handed a walkover by Germany's Florian Mayer, who retired from the tournament due to a groin injury.
In the match that will follow Djokovic's, two-time champion Murray will face 11th seed Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. "I'm just looking forward," Murray, seeded sixth, said. "It's nice that winning Wimbledon has been sort of accomplished, but I look forward now to try and do more in the big events."
Tsonga's compatriot and world no.9 Richard Gasquet will also be seen in action as he takes on Federer. The Swiss champ leads their career head-to-head record 11-2, and has also won the last three encounters.
"He's got great game and gives himself time, sort of that extra second of time on each shot - forehand and backhand," Federer said ahead of his round-four match. "He's a good all around player. With the wind and the slower conditions, it works quite well for him. I think it's going to be a tough match for me."
