Rafael Nadal has fulfilled a young ballboy's dream after offering up a racquet and playing a rally with him on Court Philippe-Chatrier.
Fifth-seeded Argentine Juan Martin del Potro booked his place in the last 16 at Roland Garros for the first time in six years, with a straightforward 7-5 6-4 6-1 victory over Spain's Albert Ramos-Vinolas.

They have played 10 times, with del Potro leading, 6-4, in their head-to-heads dating to 2008.
With clubbing forehands, Nadal did just that, streaking ahead 4-0 in the second set.
