Ruthless Rafael Nadal cruises into French Open fourth round

Ruthless Nadal storms past Haase

"And it's going to take a lot of work if I want to play on center court and play good match against him".

He won against Gilles Simon in the first round who is a tough opponent and also Viktor Troicki.

As Schwartzman became less proficient and complained about issues in his right hip area - a trainer came out and gave him a massage during a changeover late in the final set - Djokovic became more assertive and more accurate.

Novak Djokovic is coming off a five set win over Diego Schwartzman that took 44 games to decide. Djokovic meanwhile overcame Diego Schwartzman 5-7 6-3 3-6 6-1 6-1.

"I went through so much emotion in this match, I don't know what to say", said Mladenovic, praising the fans.

He won one in four of his first serve points in the opening set.

The fourth-seeded and the reigning champion outscored Putintseva 26-14 in winners, and reached the 73 per cent in winning on first serve, 24 percent higher than Putintseva.

"I was expecting a very, very hard match but not something like this", Basilashvili told reporters.


Rafael Nadal laid down a marker as he chases his 10th French Open title with his most one-sided ever victory at Roland Garros.

Raonic, a quarter-finalist in Paris in 2014, led 6-1, 1-0 before the veteran Spaniard, ranked 153, quit after just 28 minutes.

"I think I played great but at the beginning of the match he was not playing bad, and I was able to produce winners, to play with no mistakes, to play very long".

As for Basilashvili, now ranked at 63 in the world, it's been a reasonably strong start to the French Open, played on his favoured surface. This was the 100th best-of-five-sets match on clay for the Spaniard, who took his record on the surface to 98 and two.

- After Goffin briefly received off-court treatment, the chair umpire announced that the Belgian had to abandon the match. "I will be watching in 20 years with all of you guys".

But David Goffin, one of the form players of the clay-court swing, was forced to retire at 5-4 in the first set against Argentina's Horacio Zeballos when he injured his ankle sliding into a tarp at the back of the court.

"I think I reached the stage of my life where I just need to find always new ways of motivating myself, inspiring myself, and having Agassi on board and doing some changes is definitely bringing me that", said the Serb.Canadian fifth seed Milos Raonic advanced to the last 16 when Guillermo Garcia-Lopez retired with a thigh injury in the second set.

Muguruza will next face either Shelby Rogers of the United States or 13th-seeded Kristina Mladenovic of France.
