Rafael Nadal defeated Japan’s Kei Nishikori in straight sets, 6-4,6-1, 6-3, to move on to the quarter finals at the French Open. After a brief slack in the beginning of the first set, Rafa came back to play at his best yet at Roland Garros so far. His birthday was celebrated after his win, with a large tiered cake, flowers and gifts. What a great way to kick off a birthday celebration!

Rafa’s next opponent will be the winner of Gasquet-Wawrinka.
