The pair will meet for a 16th time with Gasquet looking to end Nadal's bid for an 11th French Open title in the third round.Back when the two broke through in 2005, Nadal and Gasquet were considered among the best young players in the game, but while Nadal has gone on to win 16 Grand Slam titles, Gasquet has never reached a major final.Nadal thrashed Argentinian Guido Pella 6-2, 6-1, 6-1 to reach the last 32, and his part of the draw has opened up after early exits for 24th seed Denis Shapovalov and the 14th-seeded Jack Sock. But for now he will be focused on facing Gasquet at Roland Garros for the first time since a straight-sets victory at the same third-round stage 13 years ago.
