PARIS (AP) -- Rafael Nadal earned his 60th victory in 61 matches at the French Open on Monday, beating Robby Ginepri of the United States 6-0, 6-3, 6-0.

Nadal has won eight titles at Roland Garros, with his lone loss at the tournament coming in the fourth round in 2009. If he wins this year, he will become the first man to win five straight at the clay-court major.

Nadal played his opening match on Court Suzanne Lenglen, the second biggest stadium at the French Open.
