  2. 'I did a lot of things well'

    Nadal 6-1 6-4 6-0 Travaglia

    Here's more from Rafael Nadal: "We are in a very strange situation after a lot of months without playing, especially for me because I did not play in America.

    "I don't know if that is positive or negative, I take it as a very positive thing because I am playing quite well. To win against a player like Stefano with this score is because I did a lot of things well, I played more aggressive than the previous days so I'm happy with that.

    "I went to the net more often and hit a lot more winners, my serve is working."

    Rafael Nadal starts answering questions in French and then gets a little confused, points to his head and says in English "no inspiration today!".

    Who are you backing for this autumn French Open, then? Rafa, Thiem, Djokovic? A surprise outsider? Maybe this chap....

    Nadal 6-1 6-4 6-0 Travaglia

    Apparently Nadal's next opponent Sebi Korda has a cat named Rafa...

  6. Post update

    Nadal 6-1 6-4 6-0 Travaglia

    Rafael Nadal reaches the last 16 in just one hour, 35 minutes and will face 20-year-old American Sebastian Korda next.

  7. Game, set and match - Nadal

    Nadal 6-1 6-4 6-0 Travaglia

    And he takes it!

    A little flourish at the net to finish from Rafael Nadal, whose deft volley anchors down on the clay.

    He jumps and fist pumps the sky in delight. Job done.

  8. Post update

    *Nadal 6-1 6-4 5-0 Travaglia

    No drama. The 12-time champ engineers a first match point...

  9. Post update

    *Nadal 6-1 6-4 5-0 Travaglia

    Oh! Can you believe it... Nadal shakes his head after swanning into the net and failing to convert a simple volley. 30-30.

  10. Post update

    *Nadal 6-1 6-4 5-0 Travaglia

    Looks like a beaut of an evening in Paris. Rafael Nadal has sprinted through this match like a man who's booked on a twilight cruise down the Seine. 30-0.

  11. Nadal breaks again

    *Nadal 6-1 6-4 5-0 Travaglia

    Nadal, obviously wounded by being beaten by a shot like that, races to another break and puts the finishing touches on it with an emphatic down-the-line forehand that barely rises above the tape. Anything you can do...

  12. Post update

    Nadal 6-1 6-4 4-0 Travaglia*

    Brilliant! What a winner for Stefano Travaglia, one for the highlights reel. He picks Rafa Nadal off at the net with a superb passing backhand that has the Spaniard stumbling across the clay to no avail. The Italian throws his arms into the air in mock celebration/relief. 30-15.

  13. Post update

    Nadal 6-1 6-4 4-0 Travaglia*

    Right then, Rafa. The second seed will be looking to blitz through the rest of this set and book his spot in the last 16 in time for tea. He whips a forehand winner beyond his opponent and then fizzes down a string-busting serve to hold to love.

  14. 'It's a remarkable win'

    Judy Murray

    Tennis coach on BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra

    Gaston was absolutely relentless. For someone who hasn't played at this level.... to play someone at Stan's level, he was relentless. The guy never went away. He thoroughly deserved the win.

    It's quite remarkable.

  15. Nadal breaks

    *Nadal 6-1 6-4 3-0 Travaglia

    Rafael Nadal saunters to the net to meet a high-bouncing Travaglia backhand that just creeps over the net and swats it away like he's playing swingball. He takes a double break.

  16. Post update

    Nadal 6-1 6-4 2-0 Travaglia*

    Travaglia cannot pick up a dipping Nadal forehand and that's another break point for the Spaniard.

  17. Post update

    Nadal 6-1 6-4 2-0 Travaglia*

    This looks to be slipping away from Stefano Travaglia, who put in a huge effort in the second set after being somewhat humbled in the first by a ruthless Rafael Nadal.


  18. Wawrinka knocked out by world number 239

    Wawrinka 6-2 3-6 3-6 6-4 0-6 Gaston

    Hugo Gaston of France has produced one of the biggest shocks of this year's French Open with a five-set win over Swiss 2015 champion Stan Wawrinka.

    It looked like business as usual for Wawrinka after a comfortable first set, but the 20-year-old wildcard showed amazing resilience to bounce back and lead the three-time Grand Slam champion.

    The 16th seed looked to have recovered from the blip by taking the fourth set but he was then broken three times in the decider by Gaston, who was roared to victory by the home crowd inside Suzanne Lenglen.

    He now has the task of trying to beat US Open champion Dominic Thiem.

  19. Post update

    Nadal 6-1 6-4 2-0 Travaglia*

    Exciting times for the umpire, who's off his chair and pointing at the chalk to determine whether a Nadal shot dropped in or not. Reminds me of a summer I spent working at a camp in America, where they bizarrely had clay courts and we had to straddle the lines to nail them in every few weeks. Clay sounds great in theory, but it gets very messy very quickly... Nadal holds to love.
