Monte Carlo: Nine-time tournament champion Rafael Nadal, held off British surprise-package Kyle Edmund 6-0, 5-7, 6-3 to enter the third round at the Monte Carlo Masters.

Victory for Nadal came in his 400th match on clay, his record on the surface an outstanding 366-34.

The Spaniard swept the first set 6-0 against 45th-ranked Edmund, but found himself fighting for survival in the third set.

The fourth seed finally squeezed home after two and a quarter hours.

Murray and Nadal were joined in round three by Swiss third seed Stan Wawrinka, who saw off Czech Jiri Vesely 6-2, 4-6, 6-2.

Three-time Grand Slam winner Wawrinka won Monte Carlo three years ago over compatriot and friend Roger Federer.

"Overall it was a good match, the first match on clay," said the Swiss. "The feeling was good. Winning in three sets means it was a good victory. It's important to win and keep going.

"I prepared well, practise was good. Physically I'm fine.

"I know my level is good. If I'm able to improve I might have a chance in this tournament."

Czech ninth seed Tomas Berdych put an end to the run of 39-year-old Tommy Haas 3-6, 6-1, 6-4.
