The Spaniard was already the favourite to defend his French Open crown but now that plenty of seeds have fallen in Paris, the path is clear for him to secure an 11th title in Paris.

"I, of course, need to take care about what's going on". Ball boy displayed some neat forehands and backhands after sending the first ball into the net.
