Nadal set up a meeting with Sebastian Korda.

Korda, who is ranked 213th in the world, had not even won a tour-level match in three previous attempts before impressive victories over Italian veteran Andreas Seppi and American 21st seed John Isner at Roland Garros.

Korda, the Son of the 1992 French Open finalist Petr, Korda won 6-4 6-3 6-1 to reach the last 16.

Facing 19-time major champion Nadal will be a different prospect.
