Nadal & Monaco Pass First Test In Paris
Rafael Nadal and Juan Monaco, who are competing together for the first time since July 2005 at Bastad (l. to Acasuso-Prieto in SFs), knocked out French wild cards Nicolas Mahut and Paul-Henri Mathieu with a 6-2, 6-4 win in 61 minutes. Nadal and Monaco won 35 of 46 service points and converted three of four break point opportunities.
