US Open: Rafael Nadal advances after David Ferrer retires

Zverev needs mindset change to make Slam breakthrough say pundits

Nadal, the world No. 1, breezed through the first set without facing a break point, but the 36-year-old Ferrer fought back in the second, breaking Nadal twice before the injury forced him to stop with the score at 6-3, 3-4. The three Grand Slams have been won by Federer, Nadal and Djokovic, Nadal and Federer still occupy the first two places in the ATP rankings while the Serb is No 6, Nadal and Federer are top seeded for the US Open while Djokovic Is the No 6 seed.

Ferrer, whose decision brought the curtain down on his final appearance at a grand slam, said he had taken an injection before the match but was in obvious discomfort and needed treatment before he pulled the pin.

"I'm so sorry because I can't finish the match, but anyway, thanks a lot". He dropped the first set to Nadal, 6-3, but was leading the second set 4-3 when he decided he could not continue.

However, the 36-year-old is still one of the favourites to lift a modern era record seventh US Open and 24th career Grand Slam to go level with the mark set by Margaret Court. The Brit will face Spaniard Fernando Verdasco, the 31st seed.

After his 6-3 6-2 7-5 victory, the 33-year-old said: "There is a lot of question marks of how my body will be right, how mentally I will be right".
