Rafael Nadal charged into the French Open last 16 on Friday with a 6-1, 6-4, 6-0 win over Italian world number 74 Stefano Travaglia.

The 12-time Roland Garros champion next faces American qualifier Sebastian Korda, ranked a lowly 213th, for a quarter-final spot.

Nadal has yet to drop a set in Paris this week and took a stride closer towards equalling Roger Federer's record of 20 major titles.
