Twelve-time French Open champion Rafael Nadal raced into the quarter-finals with a straight-set victory against American qualifier Sebastian Korda.

Korda said in the build-up Nadal was his “idol” but the 20-year-old struggled to match the clay-court specialist on Court Philippe Chatrier.

Second seed Nadal, chasing a fourth successive title at Roland Garros, took the match 6-1 6-1 6-2.

He will face the winner of Alexander Zverev versus Jannik Sinner next.
