A milestone result for Rafael Nadal in the second round of the French tennis Open in Paris.

The nine-time champion has chalked up his 200th grand slam win by thrashing Argentine challenger Facundo Bagnis in straight sets.

Nadal says 200 is just another number and the most important thing for him is the second round win.

World number one Novak Djokovic has also progressed to the third round in straight sets, along with defending women's champion Serena Williams.
