Rafael Nadal reached the fourth round at the French Open by beating Croatian qualifier Antonio Veic 6-1, 6-3, 6-0 on Saturday.
The top-ranked Spaniard stretched his record at Roland Garros to 41-1 with the win.
Nadal, who has won five French Open titles, is one championship away from tying Bjorn Borg’s record of six.
Fourth-seeded Andy Murray of Britain beat Michael Berrer of Germany 6-2, 6-3, 6-2 in the third round despite twisting his right ankle early in the second set.
Running forward to get to a drop shot at 2-1 in the second set, Murray turned his right foot awkwardly — although he did hit the ball and win the point. He immediately began hopping on his left foot, keeping weight off his right.
Murray went down on his back and covered his face with his arms, then sat up. He made it over to his changeover chair and tossed his racket. A trainer came out and taped up Murray’s right ankle, and play resumed.
Murray, a three-time Grand Slam runner-up, will play No. 15 Viktor Troicki of Serbia in the fourth round.
Li Na advances
Sixth-seeded Li Na of China beat 99th-ranked Sorana Cirstea of Romania 6-2, 6-2 on Saturday to reach the fourth round at the French Open.
It’s the only Grand Slam tournament where Li never has made at least the quarterfinals.
She became the first Chinese player to get to the final at a major tournament when she was the runner-up at the Australian Open in January.
Cirstea was a French Open quarterfinalist in 2009.
