Rafael Nadal of Spain and Andy Murray of Great Britain have advanced to the third round of the Shanghai Masters on Wednesday. The top-seeded Nadal beat countryman Guillermo Garcia-Lopez, 6-3, 6-2, while Murray received a walkover when Dmitry Tursunov of Russia pulled out with a thigh injury.

Earlier Wednesday, the upset of the tournament took place as fourth-seeded Jo Wilfred-Tsonga of France was knocked out by Japan’s Kei Nishikori, 6-7 (1), 6-4, 6-4. The Frenchman fought off two match points with aces before hitting a backhand long to hand Nishikori the win.
