Rafael Nadal was victorious on his return from injury after he defeated Tomas Berdych 6-0 6-4 at the Mubadala World Tennis Championship in Abu Dhabi.

Nadal had not played since October due to a wrist injury but he eased past his Czech opponent in an hour and 16 minutes to overcome the world No 10 for the 20th time in his career.

Berdych was swept aside in the opening set but improved in the second, which went with serve until the ninth game when Nadal broke to lead 5-4 before closing out the match.
