Rafael Nadal convincingly reached the quarterfinals of Roland Garros on Monday.

The Spaniard again remained without a set loss and defeated Jannik Sinner: 7-5, 6-3 and 6-0.

Earlier in the day, Novak Djokovic came back from a 2-0 deficit in sets against Lorenzo Musetti: 6-7 (7), 6-7 (2), 6-1, 6-0 and 4-0.

Nadal has won 35 sets in a row at Roland Garros.

The number three in the world started his impressive run in 2019.

The Grand Slam record is still held by Björn Borg, who won 41 sets in a row in Paris.

Nadal, who already won 38 sets in a row at Roland Garros between 2016 and 2018, can still claim that record in this tournament.

With his victory, Nadal is still on course for his fourteenth title at Roland Garros.

He only had trouble with the only nineteen-year-old Sinner in the first set, who surprisingly took a 5-3 lead in the opening set.

The Italian was allowed to serve to bring in the set, but failed to complete the job.

Nadal won four games in a row to take the opening set 7-5.

In the second set, Nadal quickly ran out to a 4-0 lead.

However, the twenty-time Grand Slam winner also handed in his service twice, making it even more exciting.

Sinner was powerless to break Nadal's resistance.

In the third set, the Italian no longer seemed to believe in it and Nadal did not give up a single game.

Nadal will play in his next match against the tenth seed Diego Schwartzman.

The Argentinian qualified for the quarterfinals at the expense of the German Jan-Lennard Struff: 7-6 (9), 6-4 and 7-5.

Nadal has won the last four editions of Roland Garros and could become the player with the most Grand Slam titles of all time.

He is currently on a par with his rival Roger Federer.

Djokovic comes back strong against teenager Musetti

Djokovic got away well earlier on Monday against the only nineteen-year-old Musetti.

The Italian was able to offer Djokovic an excellent match in the first two sets and was even too strong for the Serb in the tiebreak on two occasions.

At a 2-0 deficit in sets, Djokovic managed to recover, after which he lost only one game in the remaining three sets.

In the final set, the visibly frustrated Musetti received another warning for hitting a ball into the crowd.

Shortly afterwards he gave up, presumably because of groin complaints.

Djokovic, who had not lost a set in Paris until Monday, will play against Italian Matteo Berrettini in the quarterfinals.

The number nine of the placement list was given a free passage to the last eight, because Federer withdrew on Sunday for physical reasons.
