1000th win

Nadal celebrates 1,000th match

Nadal's milestone outing did not go according to plan early, condemned to a bagel for just the 14th time in his illustrious career, but the former world number one kept his composure to win 0-6 6-2 6-3.

The fifth seed - who boasted a superior 13-1 head-to-head record - was sensationally shut out in just 25 minutes in the opening set before halting Kohlschreiber in his tracks.

Next up for Nadal is Nicolas Mahut as he seeks his maiden title at the ATP 1000 event in Miami after reaching the final on four occasions without success.
