Rafael Nadal powered into a record-equalling 11th French Open quarter-final with a 6-1 6-2 6-2 win over Spanish compatriot Roberto Bautista Agut on Sunday.

Nadal, who turned 31 on Saturday, equals the mark for Roland Garros last-eight appearances held by Roger Federer.

The fourth seed will face either Canada's Milos Raonic or compatriot Pablo Carreno Busta for a place in the semi-finals.

Nine-time champion Nadal has dropped just 20 games in four rounds so far, just one more than he lost at the same stage in 2012.

"I'm happy because Roberto is a very good player. It's very important for me to be in the quarter-finals one more time," he said.

Nadal hit 31 winners in the match compared to just 12 for Bautista Agut and clinched victory after an hour and 50 minutes.

Defending champion Novak Djokovic will also become an 11-time quarter-finalist in Paris if he defeats Albert Ramos-Vinolas later Sunday.
