Red-faced Basilashvili has no advice for Nadal opponents

"He wanted to talk the possibility of working and I said listen, maybe I can help you over the phone, I don't think you need much, but this is not possible for me with the balance of my life".

"I won winning with that score against a player that already won against (Gilles) Simon and (Victor) Troicki, so can not say another thing".

Yet Basilashvili is no rookie: Nadal did this to him.

The second set looked to be going the way of the first as Nadal raced into a 5-0 lead before Basilashvili got his name on the scoreboard.

But he was given a real fright by Argentinian Schwartzman before coming through 5-7 7-5 3-6 6-1 6-1.

"For me, I do this on my own time and my own dime", Agassi said.

He won one in four of his first serve points in the opening set.

- Defending champion Garbine Muguruza claimed a 7-5 6-2 victory over Yulia Putintseva of Kazakhstan to reach the fourth round.

It was not plain sailing, however, and despite racing into a 4-0 lead in the fourth set, Djokovic became embroiled in a row with umpire Ramos after receiving two warnings in a game - one of slow play, the second for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Nadal turns 30 on Saturday and will have a rest day after cruising through his third round clash at the French Open with a stunning 6-0 6-1 6-0 win over Nikoloz Basilashvili. The Spaniard has now contested 100 best-of-five set matches on clay, winning a remarkable 98 times.

Continuing his quest for an unprecedented 10th Roland Garros title, Nadal will play compatriot Roberto Bautista Agut for a quarterfinal spot.

The 25-year-old Georgian slumped to a 6-0, 6-1, 6-0 defeat to the nine-champion in a ruthless dissection on Philippe Chatrier court.

"I think I played very well today".

Nikoloz Basilashvili had a plan when he turned up to play Rafa Nadal on Friday (June 2) but, like Mike Tyson said, everybody has a plan until they're punched in the face. The Spaniard had already received treatment at the end of the first set.

Fifth-seeded Milos Raonic advanced to the fourth round of the French Open when opponent Guillermo Garcia-Lopez retired from the match with a left thigh injury. "I will be watching in 20 years with all of you guys".

Belgian 10th seed David Goffin suffered a nasty ankle injury when he got caught up in court covers, forcing him to abandon his third-round tie with Horacio Zeballos of Argentina.

- The Spaniard will meet France's Kristina Mladenovic or American Shelby Rogers in the last 16.

That seemed to melt the steel in the Bulgarian's game, and he speared a backhand into the net to concede the first set and the second and the third.
