Defending champion Rafael Nadal is yet to drop a set going into the second week at Roland Garros, reaching the fourth round in Paris on Saturday with a 6-2, 7-5, 6-2 victory over Leonardo Mayer. Our champion will next face Dusan Lajovic of Serbia.
Rafa’s record at Roland Garros since 2005 is now 62 wins for one loss, that coming against Robin Soderling of Sweden in a 2009 fourth round match. “It was a positive first week – under control and winning in straight sets is better and I’m happy for that… I felt a little bit my back, that’s why I slowed down a little bit the serve,” Rafa said.
