French Open 2019: Rafael Nadal coasts through against Yannick Maden

The sixth seed, tipped as the youngster most likely to have a title run this year, said the surface of the Court Simonne Mathieu felt slow, forcing him to engage in long rallies with a player well grooved in the art of grinding it out on the dirt. Ruud's father, Christian, played in the 1999 French Open, the first major of Federer's career.

"I don't like the word 'easy, ' because when you win, it always looks easier", Nadal said. "You can meet a player who qualified who [you] have not heard of before", said Federer, who last played at Roland Garros in 2015.

It was the second successive match in which Nadal had faced a German qualifier with the same first name having defeated Yannick Hanfmann in the opening round. And then the match became hard.

Spain's Rafael Nadal prepares to serve during his second-round matchup with Germany's Yannick Maden at the French Open in Paris on May 29, 2019. Rafa Nadal goes in search of his 12th French Open title but don't count out Novak Djokovic.

The Swiss great, back at the tournament for the first time since 2015, broke once in the deciding stage of each set to progress into the last 32 against Norway's Casper Ruud.

Maden may have briefly allowed himself to dream of an outrageous upset when he twice broke to level at 3-3 and then 4-4 in the third set, but Nadal put him back in his place with two quick games to seal victory.

The 25-year-old Thiem is bidding for a maiden Grand Slam title and has reached at least the semi-finals in Paris for three consecutive years.

He finished the match with 43 winners against just 23 unforced errors. The path is obviously tougher for Federer, who could face No. 17 Diego Schwartzman in the fourth round and No. 6 Stefanos Tsitsipas in the quarterfinals. "I'm only happy to be through in four sets".

There were no alarms for 2016 champion Garbine Muguruza who beat Johanna Larsson to set up a clash with ninth seed Elina Svitolina who enjoyed a walkover against Kateryna Kozlova.

Amanda Anisimova became the youngest American women into the third round of Roland-Garros since Serena Williams in 1998 and has praised the 23-time Grand Slam victor for being an inspiration.

Second seed Karolina Pliskova also clinched a straight-sets win, beating Slovakia's Kristina Kucova 6-2, 6-2 to set up a tie with Croatian 31st seed Petra Martic.

Last year's runner-up Sloane Stephens cruised through with a 6-1, 7-6 win over Sara Sorribes Tormo on Court Philippe Chatrier.

The former US Open champion, who lost to Simona Halep in the 2018 French Open final, will play Slovenia's Polona Hercog next after she edged out American Jennifer Brady 6-3, 6-7 (8/10), 6-4.

Fourth seed Thiem, who reached the final at Roland Garros previous year and is among the favorites to go all the way this time, had to use his full range of shots to overcome 91st-ranked Bublik, who put up a determined fight against the "prince of clay".
