Spain’s Rafa Nadal celebrated his birthday at the French Open

Spain’s Rafael Nadal celebrated his 27th birthday on Monday in style, defeating Japan’s Kei Nishikori 6-4, 6-1, 6-3 to advance to the quarterfinals of the French Open.

“Two days ago, I could only have dreamed of playing like this,” the seven-time French Open champ said.

Nadal’s next opponent will be Switzerland’s Stanislas Wawrinka, who came back to beat France’s Richard Gasquet 6-7 (5-7), 4-6, 6-4, 7-5, 8-6 in a match that went four hours and 16 minutes.

“I have improved a bit, or more than a bit, in everything. I played at a high level, but I have to keep improving,” Nadal said, adding that not being broken by an opponent “is always something positive.”
