New York: Rafael Nadal, who collected two of his 14 Grand Slam titles at Flushing Meadows, moved into the second round with a 6-3, 6-2, 4-6, 6-4 victory over 18-year-old Borna Coric of Croatia in Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Rafael Nadal managed to win his first US Open match since 2013, despite dropping a set along the way.

The eighth-seeded Nadal missed last year's U.S. Open because of a right wrist injury. He won the tournament in 2010 and 2013.

Coric, ranked 33rd, is the youngest member of the ATP's top 50. He had won his only previous matchup with Nadal, which came last year.
