Rafael Nadal has beaten unseeded Dusan Lajovik 6-1, 6-2, 6-1 today to reach the quarter-finals of the French Open where he will meet David Ferrer. 

Nadal hasn't dropped a set this year in Paris, proving why he really is the King of Clay.

After the win, Nadal said: "I'm happy with the way I played today, I was able to control the points from the baseline, which is important for me.

"I look forward to playing against David (Ferrer), it is going to be a very difficult match." 

The 28-year-old certainly didn't hang around in securing the win after taking a 5-0 lead in the second set and taking advantage of the first match point thrown his way. The last return of the day came from Nadal winning the match with his powerhouse forehand.

However, the quarter-finals are going to be a little tougher for Nadal as he and Nadal have some unfinished business. This comes after Ferrer beat Nadal last April in the quarter-finals of the Monte Carlo Masters. 

Ferrer finds himself as one of only three players who have beaten Nadal on clay. Nadal played exceptionally well today, proving why he is the world No. 1 and still the man to beat. 

The quarter-final between the two will take place on Wednesday and is no doubt one not to be missed.
