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.

Her French counterpart Gerard Collomb said he had links with Islamic State and had probably visited Syria as well. He was also detained by Libyan militia on Wednesday, authorities said, although it was not clear on what charges.

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.
