Nadal loses only 2 games in easy win at French


By Associated Press

PARIS (AP) — Rafael Nadal routed Juan Monaco 6-2, 6-0, 6-0 Monday to reach the quarterfinals, staying on track for his bid for a record seventh French Open title.

It was a stress-free match that took 14 minutes short of two hours. Nadal faced only two break points and saved them both, with neither the wind nor his 13th-seeded opponent causing the slightest trouble.

The second-seeded Spaniard has lost only 19 games through four matches in the tournament.

Nadal's quarterfinal will be an all-Spanish matchup against 12th-seeded Nicolas Almagro, who defeated Janko Tipsarevic earlier in the day.
