Unsurprisingly, Rafael Nadal is into the quarterfinals of the 2010 French Open after his straight-set, fourth round victory yesterday at Roland Garros. The world's second-ranked player is the French Open's defining player of this generation, dominating the tournament for the last five years.
This year, Nadal has advanced to the quarterfinals without a scratch on him. Just once in four matches was the Spaniard pushed to a tie-breaker set (in his fourth round match) and only two other times has an opponent won four games in a set.
Now fully healthy after battling leg injuries last year, Nadal is poised to claim his fifth French Open title in six years? Can he do it? Can anyone score a shocking upset or will he continue his unimpeded assault on the clay courts?
