With his 37-set unbeaten streak at the French Open in jeopardy, Nadal broke back but struggled to cope with his opponent's powerful shots deep into the court - and dropped his serve twice more, crucially at 4-4, giving Schwartzman a chance to serve for the set he did not pass up. Schwartzman saw two set points come and go but at the third time of asking, after a delay while a spectator was helped out after feeling ill, the Argentine ripped a forehand victor.

The match will resume on Thursday with Schwartzman leading 6-4, 3-5 (15-30).

Nadal raised minor concerns when he had both wrists wrapped between sets, although Alex Corretja, once Andy Murray's coach, reckoned they were to soak up sweat rather than wrap an injury.

They will return on Thursday morning.

The Spaniard had been on course to do the same at this year's event but saw the first set against Schwartzman go the way of the Argentine, who claimed it 6-4.

Defending champion Rafa Nadal celebrated his 32nd birthday on Sunday making short work of Richard Gasquet ( 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 ) in his third-round match, and then made a ball boy's day at the Roland Garros.

It was the first set Nadal had lost in his last 38, stretching over three French Open campaigns - meaning Bjorn Borg's record of 41 straight sets won remained intact.

"The amount of stress you can imagine he was under when he left the court for the first time", she said.

"I was up against a great player so I had to make sure I brought my best tennis".

But as in the first set, Nadal's riposte was swift, chasing down a drop-shot to set up a break-back opportunity, converted when Marterer thumped a forehand long.

"But today was certainly not one of those steps".
