Timeline of Day 7 How Rafa Serena and Maria enjoyed a super Saturday at Roland Garros

He stayed in touch until 4-4, pulling breaks back in games four and eight but losing serve again in the following game, which determined the victor of the set.

Marterer may have felt he would need a degree of fortune to have any chance of an upset and the early signs were promising as a net cord set up two break points, Nadal double faulting on the first to hand his opponent a 2-0 lead.

On Suzanne-Lenglen, Marin Cilic's last-eight tie with Juan-Martin Del Potro failed to burst into life until the ninth game, when the Croatian saved three break points before eventually holding, and did likewise in his next service game before taking the set to a tiebreak - which was locked at 5-5.

The gritty Argentine went toe-to-toe with the world No. 1, breaking him three times and booking two set points.

Nadal made 14 unforced errors and struck just four winners in a poor first set, before having both of his wrists strapped by the trainer.

When Schwartzman broke in the third game of the second set, the alarm bells were ringing in the Nadal camp and although he quickly levelled he was immediately broken again.

The more likely reason, said Harris, is that Melania underwent surgery for a benign kidney condition on May 14. But last night, the former model stepped into the limelight once again with an appearance at the White House.


But as in the first set, Nadal's riposte was swift, chasing down a drop-shot to set up a break-back opportunity, converted when Marterer thumped a forehand long.

Another rain delay sent the players off court and shortly afterwards play was suspended for the day.

Muguruza condemned Sharapova to her heaviest Grand Slam defeat in more than six years and will face top seed Simona Halep for a place in the final against either Sloane Stephens or Madison Keys.

Nadal, aiming for an 11th French Open title, trails the 11th seed 6-3 3-5.

Next up for the Spaniard is a last-eight meeting with Diego Schwartzman, who came from two sets down to see off Kevin Anderson, runner-up to Nadal in last year's US Open final.

"But today was certainly not one of those steps".
