0

PARIS: Rafael Nadal handed out a brutal French Open lesson to highly rated Dominic Thiem on Thursday (Friday in Manila) as Roland Garros took a breather from the shocks, which have rocked the tournament. Defending champion Nadal cruised to a 6-2, 6-2, 6-3 victory over his 20-year-old Austrian opponent to reach the third round. Fifth-seeded compatriot David Ferrer, the runner-up in 2013, and Andy Murray, the seventh seeded Wimbledon champion, also cruised through.
