Nadal loses only 2 games in easy win at French


PARIS (AP) -Rafael Nadal defeated Juan Monaco 6-2, 6-0, 6-0 on Monday to advance to the quarterfinals of the French Open and keep his quest for a record seventh title at Roland Garros on track.

It was a stress-free match that took 14 minutes short of two hours. Nadal faced only two break points and saved them both, as neither the windy weather nor his 13th-seeded opponent caused him 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.
