A big shame for Carreno Busta.

- 

PABLO CARRENO BUSTA 0-2 RAFAEL NADAL: Nadal races into a two-game advantage in the second and it is too much for Carreno Busta, who can’t continue. That is match over. What a shame.

- 

Carreno Busta takes a medical timeout. First he calls for the trainer before leaving the court for further treatment.

-

PABLO CARRENO BUSTA 2-6 RAFAEL NADAL: Carreno Busta breaks Nadal twice but still contrives to lose the set. The number 18 hands the set to the fourth seed with a double fault. 15 unforced errors already from Carreno Busta.

 

PABLO CARRENO BUSTA 2-5 RAFAEL NADAL: Carreno Busta breaks to love. A fine riposte to Nadal’s dominance – he must now hold.

-

PABLO CARRENO BUSTA 1-5 RAFAEL NADAL: Nadal is serving for the set, already. Carreno Busta’s unforced error count is edging up as he looks for the lines. Nadal breaks again and Carreno Busta’s first appearance in a Grand Slam quarter-final could be short-lived.

- 

PABLO CARRENO BUSTA 1-4 RAFAEL NADAL: This time Nadal consolidates. It is the nine-time champion who is dealing with the conditions – the wind is howling, it is pretty chilly and there are minimal spectators - better here.

 

PABLO CARRENO BUSTA 1-3 RAFAEL NADAL: A third break of serve on the bounce. Nadal takes the only break point on offer to re-open the two-game advantage.

-

PABLO CARRENO BUSTA 1-2 RAFAEL NADAL: That is a fine response from Carreno Busta, who immediately breaks back. We are back on serve.

 

PABLO CARRENO BUSTA 0-2 RAFAEL NADAL: Nadal gets his into gear early on and fashions a break point in the second game of the set. He duly takes it with a fine crosscourt, whipped forehand.

 

PABLO CARRENO BUSTA 0-1 RAFAEL NADAL: Some absolute savage hitting from both players to open the match with one fine winner from Carreno Busta but Nadal has enough to hold to 30.

- 

The players are out on court...

- 

After some pre-match reading on Nadal's excellence? Here you go…

- 

The nine-time winner here remains the man to beat as he chases his La Decima but Carreno Busta showed he is not to be underestimated having come from 1-0 and 2-1 down to oust Milos Raonic at the fourth-round stage.

- 

Nadal has been in imperious form thus far, and is yet to drop a set.

Hello and welcome to our game-by-game coverage from the Philippe-Chatrier Court, where Pablo Carreno Busta takes on fourth seed but overwhelming favourite for the tournament Rafael Nadal for a spot in the semi-finals.
