Spain's Rafael Nadal returns the ball to Serbia's Dusan Lajovic

Eight-times champion and world No.1 Nadal improved his Roland Garros win-loss record to a remarkable 63-1 to advance having not dropped a set in Paris this year.

World No. 83 Lajovic, who had not previously lost a set on his French Open debut, quickly went 5-0 down and never recovered, also losing the first four games of the second set to love.

Nadal ended the masterclass on his first match point with a thumping forehand down the line.
