The Spaniard was in his elements against Dominic Thiem as he took the match in straight sets 6-2, 6-2, 6-3 in his quest for another French Open crown. Thiem represents one of tennis’ brightest young talents at the present time and Nadal doled out a true clay court master-class in what was surely an overwhelming experience for those who witnessed the match.

 

Mayer overcame Russian Teymuraz Gabashvili 6-2, 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 in what was a hard fought encounter between two men who were giving it their all to progress in the tournament.

 

In previous encounters, the Argentine Mayer has never won a game over Rafael Nadal. They have faced each other only two times on court. Nadal has won ten out of his last eleven matches on clay – only losing to Novak Djokovic in Rome.

Leonardo Mayer meanwhile was eliminated in the second round at Oeiras in Portugal and in the first round in Madrid. He did produce a better performance at Nice, but it will be rather difficult for the Argentine to stop Nadal on the kind of form that the Spaniard is in.
