Nadal made it 16-0 in his rivalry with childhood friend Gasquet with a comprehensive 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 victory on Court Philippe Chatrier. I'll try to play a good match.

It promises to be a hard-hitting match, with big serves and booming forehands, when Isner meets del Potro in the fourth round.

Djokovic has been shaky at times, too. The only man to beat Nadal on clay this season, Dominic Thiem, couldn't take him on again until the final. "It has been three hard matches for me, but I played well and I know I could play even better in my next round", del Potro said. They've known each other since they were young prodigies. I can win, I can lose.

"Of course I have won a lot, and it can maybe influence my opponents". But that's their thing.
