Rafael Nadal beat Matthew Ebden 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 to move to No. 3 on the list of match wins at the Australian Open in the professional era, and extended his record of never losing a second-round match at Melbourne Park.

The win improved 2009 champion Nadal's win-loss record to 57-12 at the Australian Open, surpassing Stefan Edberg's mark of 56 wins.

Six-time champions Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic hold the top two spots on that list. Defending champion Federer recorded his 96th win earlier Wednesday and top-ranked Djokovic had 62 after his first-round win.

Nadal has opened with back-to-back wins over Australians and will face another one - Alex de Minaur - in the third round.
