Inexhaustible Rafael Nadal wins 200th Grand Slam match

New Delhi: Nine-time French Open champion Rafael Nadal became the eighth man to win 200 Grand Slam matches on Thursday.

The Spaniard fought off a sluggish start to beat Argentina`s Facundo Bagnis at Roland Garros to achieve the milestone. He defeated the world number 99 in straight sets 6-3, 6-0, 6-3 in one hour 46 minutes.

The 29-year-old next plays either Spanish compatriot Marcel Granollers, who benefitted from the retirement of Nicolas Mahut of France, for a spot in the last 32.
