MEN’S

 Defending champion Rafael Nadal eased into the last 16 of the French Open with a 6-1 6-3 6-1 victory over Finland’s Jarkko Nieminen.

Almagro won five straight games and the set before breaking twice in the fourth for a 6-3 6-7 (3-7) 6-3 7-5 win over Andy Murray

WOMEN’S

World number four Serena Williams crashed out of the French Open after suffering a shock 6-4 6-4 third-round defeat to Katarina Srebotnik.

Top seed Maria Sharapova also struggled against Bethanie Mattek before winning her second round match 6-2 3-6 6-2. “I’m not a clay court specialist that’s going to stand 10 feet behind the baseline and retrieve balls back,” said Sharapova, who needs a win in Paris to complete a career grand slam. 

 Ana Ivanovic struggled early on against teenage Dane Caroline Wozniacki before rallying to reach round four with a 6-4 6-1 win.

Petra Cetkovska eased past fellow Czech Iveta Benesova 6-3 6-3.
