RAFAEL NADAL HAS hit the early shot of the French Open on Tuesday, going between the legs for a down-the-line ace during the third set of his easy first-round victory over Sam Groth, 6-1, 6-1, 6-1.

Leading 4-1 in the third set, Nadal found himself hurrying from the net to the baseline after Groth had lobbed him. The nine-time French Open champion had no trouble tracking down the ball, of course, and pulled off a lovely ‘tweener for a clean winner.

It was that kind of day for Nadal.
