Eight-time champion Rafael Nadal stormed into a French Open quarterfinal showdown against compatriot David Ferrer Monday while Andy Murray set up a clash with childhood friend Gael Monfils, France's last man standing.Watched by U.S. rocker Prince, who played a concert in the French capital Sunday night, Nadal, seeking to become the first man to win five French Opens in a row, needed just 93 minutes to go through to a last-eight showdown with Ferrer.The two men met in last year's final where Nadal allowed his 32-year-old Davis Cup teammate just eight games.Ferrer reached his 10th successive Grand Slam quarterfinal with a 6-3, 6-3, 6-7 (5/7), 6-1 win over South Africa's Kevin Anderson.Monfils, 27, who made the semifinals in 2008, trails Murray 3-2 in their senior careers but the pair have not met since 2010 when the flamboyant French player won at the Paris Masters.
