The Spanish second seed led by two sets and a break, but he needed to halt a thrilling comeback from Russian rebel Medvedev to win an epic showdown 7-5 6-3 5-7 4-6 6-4.
"Did I think I might lose? Of course, when you have break point against in the beginning of the fifth, losing the last two sets, you are in trouble," Nadal said.
