Sony Ericsson Open: Nadal powers past Nalbandian
Key Biscayne, Mar 29: The world may be witnessing the clash of tennis titans soon as Rafael Nadal is on his way trying to set up a fight with the world number one Roger Federer at the Sony Ericsson Open.

While Nadal has not won a tournament since ten months, Rafa and Federer have not meet for a match since May 2010 in Madrid.

On Sunday, Mar 28, Nadal powered past wild card entry David Nalbandian with a 6-7 (8), 6-2, 6-2 victory in the third round.

With World number two Novak Djokovic and World number three Andy Murray out of the tournament, Rafa and Federer are more likely to meet.

The fourth-seeded Spaniard will be fighting against compatriot David Ferrer next and his potential semi finals rival is number six Andy Roddick.
