Certainly jostled at the start of the second set – a time behind 1-3 – the Mallorcan won in three sets (6-3, 6-3, 6-3) and 2:07 of play. Not without delivering some phenomenal blows.

This was particularly the case on the second act ball, where the Spaniard in search of a 14th coronation at the French Open cracked a supersonic passing.

He will face Italy’s Jannik Sinner in the round of 16.
