Spain’s Rafael Nadal could face world number one Novak Djokovic in the quarter-finals of the French Open after Friday’s draw handed him the toughest of routes to a possible 10th crown.

The 28-year-old, who holds the record for titles at Roland Garros, would then face a potential semi-final against third seed Andy Murray and a final against 17-times grand slam champion Roger Federer.

Murray, who beat Nadal in the Madrid Masters showpiece match this month, will play a qualifier in the first round and could face seventh seed David Ferrer of Spain in the quarter-finals.
