Nadal swats aside Gasquet to march on at Roland Garros

Nadal swats aside Gasquet to march on at Roland Garros

If Nadal wins this French Open 2018 trophy then he will match Margaret Court's all-time record for most singles titles at the same Grand Slam event.

The "King of Clay" needed almost two hours to defeat the Frenchman for the 16th time in as many career matches, extending his set winning streak at Roland Garros to 34, reports Efe. "I'm just sorry that he had to play me again here, but that's the sport".

The Frenchman has never beaten his childhood rival on the ATP Tour and hasn't even pinched a set off him over the last decade - and that never truly looked like changing in a relatively routine afternoon's work for Nadal on Saturday. After earning applause from Nadal following a superb cushioned drop shot at the net, he ended that game with an ace. Ranked No. 1 in WTA ranking Halep is now chasing her maiden Grand Slam title at the Roland Garros.

Nadal, who is yet to lose a set from his opening three rounds, will next face Maximilian Marterer after the German had earlier defeated lucky loser Jurgen Zopp 6-2 6-1 6-4. He hits the ball with big topspin. "He has power, so he's a risky opponent".

During this year's French Open, Dubreuil is keeping an eye on the next generation of tennis stars. I found a way", said Gasquet after his 6-2, 3-6, 6-3, 6-0 second-round victory over Malek Jaziri."I'm not going to think about it throughout the day and think he's an incredible player; we all know it.

They will next play the Japanese duo of Eri Hozumi and Makoto Ninomiya in the third round.

Dabrowski, from Ottawa, and Pavic will face Andrea Sestini Hlavackova of the Czech Republic and Edouard Roger-Vasselin of France in the second round. She will next play 10th-seeded Sloane Stephens. Petkovic needed treatment to her right leg and had it bandaged above and below the knee.

But it's good that guys are sticking to what they believe in and what they want to do. "I don't feel good about it". That's what the military fights for, is free speech. "From watching that replay, it p--ed me off", Thompson said.

The Romanian star is a two-time runner-up at Roland Garros - slumping to a defeat to Russian tennis star Maria Sharapova in the 2014 final before losing to Jelena Ostapenko previous year.

She and Sharapova were scheduled to play a fourth-round match Monday.

Consider the streaks that the No.1-ranked Nadal has amassed.

"So I called my mum, and she said "You have to come back because you have to do exams" and I said 'I'm sorry, Mum, but Air France is on strike, I can not come back.' So I didn't come back and a few months later, my dream came true when I started to work at Tennis Magazine, the French one".

The fifth-seeded del Potro reached the semifinals in 2009, the same year he also won the U.S. Open.

Former champion Sharapova reached the fourth round with a dominant 6-2, 6-1 win against Karolina Pliskova.

I think this is a match where Gasquet can win sets and keep it competitive, but he has to do something different.

He will next face 11th seed Diego Schwartzman after the diminutive Argentine underlined his clay court capability with a 7-5 6-3 6-3 victory against the unseeded Borna Coric.
