Richard Gasquet 'Nadal has a different game his intensity is monstrous'

But the 16-time major victor looked in danger of being beaten there for only the third time in his career, trailing a set and break on Wednesday to an opponent who had never previously been beyond the last 32. In the other quarterfinal, Marin Cilic and Juan Martin del Potro were into the tiebreak and at 5-5.

It was a grueling baseline battle right from the start, with no less than 14 break points in the opening set that lasted for well over an hour.

Nadal's serve, and forehand, had seemingly deserted him as he was broken three times in the first set.

Schwartzman's supporters will be hoping he won't be too exhausted from his heroic five-set win over the giant South African Kevin Anderson on Monday and has the self-belief to overcome a 0-5 head-to-head record against Nadal.

On Thursday, it was rarely used as effectively.

The fired up Argentine left the Philippe Chatrier crowd stunned as he took the first set 6-4 with a solitary break enough.

Halep won in 59 minutes with the second set taking just 22 minutes.

Though Nadal hit back to level for 2-2, the plucky Argentinian broke again with a thumping forehand to regain control.

An easy smash into the net midway through the fourth set characterised his problems, a total of 25 unforced errors compared to eight winners in the final two sets underlining the pressure being put on by Nadal.

He went on to break Nadal two more times in the second set before the match had to be stopped due to rain.
