Rafael Nadal is through to the French Open semi-finals
The nine-times French Open champion had breezed through to the quarters, losing an average of just five games per match with some stunning clay court performances.
And after spending just over half-and-hour closing out the first set 6-2 against fellow countryman and no. 20 seed, he was left to try to keep warm on his seat while Carreno Busta took a medical time-out to receive treatment after being seen courtside to clutch his mid-riff.
The full extent of the time-out expired as Nadal upped his warm-up routine, hitting a few balls until Carreno Busta re-emerged with a huge square of tape across the left-hand side of his abdomen.
He tried to continue, but having missed a simple smash at the end of the second game, winning only one of the nine points played, he shook hands sadly with Nadal and exited the competition.
Nadal now can put his feet up and wait to see whether it is Dominic Thiem or Novak Djokovic who awaits in the semi-final.
