Paris, May 30: Tennis legends Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer moved a step further towards their potential semi final clash in men's singles here on Wednesday.
Nadal eased past Germany's Yannick Maden 6-1, 6-2, 6-4, setting up a third round clash with No. 27 seed David Goffin.
"In the third set, I lost a little bit concentration and intensity. Then all the match became difficult," Nadal told a press conference. "The positive thing is every time that I had the mistake, then I had the break again, and that's good news."
Federer also notched a comfortable victory, as the 20-time Grand Slam winner beat another German player Oscar Otte 6-4, 6-3, 6-4.
