Nadal drops one game to win third-round clash
Rafael Nadal dropped just one game on his way to a straight-set victory over Nikoloz Basilashvili.
It was Nadal's 100th best-of-five-sets match on clay. He has a 98-2 win-loss record.
With the rain clouds rolling in, Nadal seemed keen to get his third-round match over as quickly as possible and the number four seed took 90 minutes to win 6-0, 6-1, 6-0.
"I don't know if it was perfection," said Nadal, who turns 31 today.
"I went on court thinking it was going to be a tough match ... I believe I played the best match since a while."
