Rafael Nadal crushes Richard Gasquet to reach last 16

"I played very well, I'm sorry for Richard, he is a good friend and a good person", Nadal said. Juan Martin del Potro was a victor over former quarterfinalist ALbert Ramos Vinolas 7-5, 6-4, 6-1.

But Nadal was in no mood for a marathon and he bagged the first set on serve before putting Gasquet to the sword again at the beginning of the second and third sets, making sure there was no hope of a comeback amongst the Frenchman's supporters.

Rafa Nadal talks to a ball boy after beating Richard Gasquet at French Open.

Third seed Marin Cilic reached the fourth round of a Grand Slam for the 20th time when he beat American Steve Johnson 6-3 6-2 6-4 in one hour, 34 minutes.

Nadal obliged in front of a Chatrier crowd who cheered every ball before the player stepped over the net and hugged the youngster.

Isner is the last US man left in the field after eliminating the last man from France, Pierre-Hugues Herbert, 7-6 (1), 6-4, 7-6 (4).

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

Goffin then held serve to love to level at two sets apiece.

Pedro Sánchez sworn in as new Spanish prime minister
Along the way, Rajoy accumulated plenty of powerful enemies, especially in Spain's separatist regions, Catalonia most notably. The rising center-right Ciudadanos legislator, Toni Canto, predicted that Sanchez's PSOE would give Podemos ministerial posts.

The No 3-seeded Croat won the 2014 US Open and has reached the final at two of the past three majors - Wimbledon previous year and the Australian Open in January.

Alexander, who is seeded No 2 at Roland Garros, won his third-round match Friday. He will face No. 18 Fabio Fognini next.

Fognini joins compatriot Marco Cecchinato in the fourth round, the first time that more than one Italian has made the last 16 since 1976.

If it hadn't been for 18-time grand slam singles victor Chris Evert, Dubreuil's dream may never have come true.

The Belgian eighth seed defeated the Frenchman 6-7 (6-8) 6-3 4-6 7-5 6-3.

Argentina's Diego Schwatrzmann registered an impressive 7-5, 6-3, 6-3 win over in-form Croatian Borna Coric, and the 11th seed will face Kevin Anderson in the fourth round after the South African sixth seed secured a four-set victory over Germany's Mischa Zverev.

The No. 3-seeded Croat won the 2014 U.S. Open and has reached the final at two of the past three majors - Wimbledon a year ago and the Australian Open in January. He'll next face No. 11 seed Diego Schwartzman, a 7-5, 6-3, 6-3 victor against Borna Coric.

Out of nowhere, the 29th seed reeled off three consecutive games to at least make the first set scoreline look respectable - though it was too little too late as the top seed eventally took the one-set lead.
