Friday sees nine-time champion Rafael Nadal back in action at the Internazionali BNL d'Italia.

Nadal beat Pablo Carreno Busta in the first round in Rome earlier this week in what was his first competitive match for over six months after he opted to miss the US Open over safety concerns.

The Spaniard, seeded No. 2 this week, takes on Serb Dusan Lajovic in the third round on Friday as he looks to secure a quarter-final spot.

Rafa, who leads Lajovic 2-0 on their head-to-head, said of his opening match: "It was a perfect start for me. It was solid, good shots on the forehand and backhand. I didn't expect to play that well.

"I played a very solid match and very serious and doing a lot of things very well. So very happy."
