Nadal, Djokovic Win French Open Games

Rafael Nadal began his quest for a 10th French Open title with a straight-sets victory over teenager Quentin Halys.
Frenchman Halys, an 18-year-old wildcard, had the Roland Garros crowd on his side but was not consistent enough to trouble the champion.
And sixth seed Nadal, 28, won 6-3 6-3 6-4 in one hour and 50 minutes on Court Philippe Chatrier.
The Spaniard is in the same half of the draw as top seed Novak Djokovic, who beat Jarkko Nieminen 6-2 7-5 6-2.
Djokovic has now won 23 matches in a row as he attempts to claim his first title at Roland Garros and become the eighth man to complete the career Grand Slam of Wimbledon and the Australian, French and US Opens.
He was given a useful workout by Finland’s Nieminen, the 33-year-old taking a surprise 5-2 lead in the second set.
