French Open 2018: Nadal powers into third-round meeting with Gasquet

Rafael Nadal moves up a gear to demolish Guido Pella in French Open

Rafael Nadal moves up a gear to demolish Guido Pella in French Open

U.S. Open runner-up Madison Keys overcame some late-match shakiness to reach the fourth round at Roland Garros for the second time in three years.

"Gorgeous", wrote one Instagram user, while another one continued: "Dresses automatically become lovely when you wear them!" He subsequently invited one of the ball boys out on Court Philippe Chatrier to practice with him.

The 16-time Grand Slam champion still had the energy after his match to play few rallies with a ball boy called Leo, who was introduced by former French Open champion Marion Bartoli at the end of Nadal's on-court interview.

Meantime, Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova will meet in a bumper round of 16 match after both recorded straight-sets third round victories.

The Croatian, who won the US Open in 2014 and was a quarterfinalist here a year ago, was cruising until the third set, when Hurkacz broke him for the only time in the match.

Sixth seed Kevin Anderson is a potential quarter-final opponent for Nadal after beating Mischa Zverev 6-1 6-7 (3-7) 6-3 7-6 (7/4).

Gasquet was totally overwhelmed on Saturday, finding himself trailing 5-0 after 12 minutes, and the Parisian crowd felt it could be an express washout.

Third-seeded Garbine Muguruza, the 2016 French Open champion, also impressed on the main court. I know he's the most hard player for me because of his style of play.

Marin Cilic has moved into the fourth round at a Grand Slam tournament for the 20th time, eliminating Steve Johnson of the US 6-3, 6-2, 6-4.

Gasquet advanced to the third round for the eighth straight year by defeating Malek Jaziri 6-2, 3-6, 6-3, 6-0.

Cilic won all 14 of his service games, broke Johnson four times and built a 35-14 edge in total winners.

Unseeded Russian Karen Khachanov completed a 6-3, 5-7, 6-3 win against 15th-seeded Lucas Pouille of France.

The Croat will face Italy's Fabio Fognini, who knocked out British number one Kyle Edmund as he took a thrilling five-setter 6-3 4-6 3-6 6-4 6-4.
