Nadal, Gasquet excited to lock horns

French Open results LIVE Roland Garros latest scores as Nadal faces Bolelli

There was further disappointment for the French supporters as Gael Monfils squandered four match points in the fourth set against David Goffin, as the Belgian secured a 6-7 (6-8) 6-3 4-6 7-5 6-3 victory to book a last-16 tie with Italy's Marco Cecchinato.

"Once he's ahead", Gasquet lamented, "it becomes impossible".

Although the Frenchwoman is now covering her 32nd French Open, she says working at Roland Garros in Paris is still a privilege.

Where can I get tickets for Rafael Nadal vs Richard Gasquet? . Nadal took his run of consecutive completed sets at the French Open to 34, just seven shy of the record held by Bjorn Borg between 1979 and 1981.

Gasquet's coach Fabrice Santoro has urged his understudy to mix his tactics up and try a different approach, and that is surely the only way he is going to trouble an opponent who has always had his number.

Halep, who also lost in the 2014 final, will next face either two-time Grand Slam champion Angelique Kerber or Caroline Garcia.

Fognini, the 2015 Australian Open champion had taken the first set 6-3 but Briton Edmund recovered well to give himself a 2-1 lead with 6-4 and 6-3 wins in the second and third sets respectively.

In classic Nadal fashion, he spoke glowingly of his next opponent.

She also urged her critics to be fair, adding: "Please don't compare me2 other people who have said frightful things". "I begged Ben Sherwood at ABC to let me apologize and make amends", Barr wrote in the since-deleted post .


"He's a player that has a good potential", Nadal said of the German.

It promises to be a hard-hitting match, with big serves and booming forehands, when Isner meets del Potro in the fourth round.

"You have a lot of fans around the world but this ball kid is your biggest fan and it is his dream to play just one ball against you at Roland Garros", she told the top seed. "He has power, so he's a unsafe opponent", said Nadal.

Del Potro next plays either ninth-seeded American John Isner or unseeded Frenchman Pierre-Hugues Herbert. He looked the more experienced between the two players. He has yet to drop a set at this year's tournament.

Alexander Zverev already has played a pair of five-setters.

Djokovic has been shaky at times, too.

The crowd performs a wave as Spain's Rafael Nadal plays France's Richard Gasquet during their third round match of the French Open tennis tournament at the Roland Garros stadium, Saturday, June 2, 2018 in Paris.

Nadal, who turns 32 on Sunday, employed his usual humility when a reporter raised the popular notion that he's impossible to beat on clay. "I don't know what the others think".
