Nadal Cruises into Third Round, 74-2 at Roland Garros

The Spaniard has now contested 100 best-of-five set matches on clay, winning a remarkable 98 times. The Spaniard played some precision shots to win 7-5, 6-2 against Yulia Putintseva.

"I literally can not see", Wozniacki said. The Spaniard was almost flawless, winning 63 percent of the points on Basilashvili's serve and saving all three of the break points he faced.

"I don't want money, I want to help him".

Serena Williams is at the French Open, after all " but as a spectator, not a competitor.

"Generally, I felt better than the first round, so that's exactly what I wanted". "So a lot of things that I achieved are because he was there since I was three-years-old, helping", Nadal said.

"I was expecting this kind of match because I played her recently, and I saw her a little bit in the few tournaments before", said Muguruza.

The Indian pair of Purav Raja and Divij Sharan advanced to the men's doubles pre-quarterfinals after an upset win but their senior compatriot Leander Paes bowed out of the French Open here Friday.

Explaining how their partnership came about, Agassi told Eurosport: "It was a surprise for me".

Poll dive hits UK PM's Brexit hopes
A shock new poll for the right-leaning newspaper undertaken by Yougov shows that Theresa May's party would actually lose 20 seats. The result would leave the party 16 seats short of a working majority, effectively a "hung parliament".

The eighth-seeded Russian beat No. 32 Zhang Shuai of China 7-6 (5), 4-6, 7-5, improving to 5-1 in their head-to-head matches. But it's true that I played already six finals.

But before contemplating their respective accomplishments, each man had a second round match to attend to, with the shock early exits of seeded players including Alexander Zverev (9), Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (12) and Jack Sock (14) offering timely reminders that neither Nadal or Djokovic can afford to count their chickens just yet.

"I'd like to congratulate him for a great battle because he played very, very well".

Paris: Nikoloz Basilashvili had a plan when he turned up to play Rafa Nadal on Friday but, like Mike Tyson said, everybody has a plan until they're punched in the face.

Kristina Mladenovic is through to the French Open fourth round after beating Shelby Rogers of the United States 7-5, 4-6, 8-6 from 5-3 down in the last set.

"I used to hate it when guys did that to me. drag my tennis down, weaken me, and that is what you need to do".

"I don't know if it was perfection", said Nadal, who turns 31 on Saturday. And five matches to go for ten. Paes and his partner Martina Hingis of Switzerland, who were unseeded, lost to fourth seeds Katarina Srebotnik (Slovakia) and Raven Klaasen (South Africa) 4-6, 6-1, 2-10. He is heavy favourite to win an unprecedented 10th French Open and this display will have done nothing to dampen those hopes.
