But a bustling Spaniard has played some marvellous tennis in his opening 3 matches and faces Luxembourg maestro Gilles Muller on Monday for a place in a quarter-finals.

It would be a staggering dissapoint were Muller to disintegrate 31-year-old Nadal, who is 3 years his youth and a associate left-hander.
