Rafael Nadal blows away Nikoloz Basilashvili to reach French Open fourth round

First up in the main stadium at Roland Garros was Nadal, who won 82 points and conceded merely 36 in a 6-0, 6-1, 6-0 victory over 63rd-ranked Nikoloz Basilashvili.

Basilashvili hit just five winners and committed 34 unforced errors in his 90-minute horror show.

Nadal, 31 on Saturday, has now won 98 of 100 best-of-five clay-court matches.

In women's singles Garbine Muguruza showed glimpses of the form that had propelled her to her first Major championship here previous year. In the men's doubles, the unseeded duo of Paes and S. Lipsky of the USA lost 6-7 (3), 2-6 to Spaniards D. Marrero and T. Robredo in an hour and 31 minutes in their second round match.

Canadian fifth seed Milos Raonic also advanced to the last 16 when veteran Spaniard Guillermo Garcia-Lopez retired through injury in the second set. The Spaniard reached his first and only Major quarter-final past year, right here, and made his first Masters final only two months ago in Monte-Carlo. The 2016 quarterfinalist, however, slipped on a tarp at he back of Court Suzanne Lenglen and sustained an ankle injury during his match against Horacio Zeballos.
