Rafael Nadal eased through the opening round of the French Open claiming victory against Jordan Thompson.
Nadal was in his element in Paris, winning in straight sets, 6-2 6-2 6-2, and comfortably seeing himself through to the second round.
A chronic foot injury has hampered Nadal’s season so far and so a routine victory on his hunt for a 14th French Open win will certainly bolster the 21-time Grand Slam winner’s confidence.
Nadal is in the same quarter of the draw as Novak Djokovic and will face either Corentin Moutet or Stan Wawrinka in the second round.
