Rafael Nadal improved his record at the French Open to 47-1, advancing to the third round on Thursday by beating Denis Istomin of Uzbekistan 6-2, 6-2, 6-0.

Nadal has won the French Open title six times, and one more will break the record he shares with Bjorn Borg.

Overall, Nadal has won 10 Grand Slam titles, including at least one at each of the four majors.
