ACAPULCO, Mexico (AP) -- Rafael Nadal beat Diego Schwartzman of Argentina 6-2, 6-2 on Tuesday to advance to the second round of the Mexican Open.

The seven-time French Open winner is making a comeback after being away from the tour for more than seven months with a left-knee injury.

Nadal made the final of the VTR Open earlier this month in Chile before losing to Argentine Horacio Zeballos. A week later he reached the final of the Brazil Open and defeated David Nalbandian to secure the title.

He is seeded No. 2 in the clay court tournament at Mexico, behind fellow Spaniard David Ferrer.
