Nadal, Federer, Roddick win openers
PARIS -- The King of Clay eclipsed another mark Monday, this time breaking the French Open men's record for consecutive wins.
Top-seeded Rafael Nadal looked his usual dominant self in the first round, beating Marcos Daniel of Brazil 7-5, 6-4, 6-3 for his 29th straight win on the red clay at Roland Garros.
"At the beginning, I didn't quite get the best feelings, but I won in three sets. That's very positive," Nadal said. "I should have won more easily ... but it was a difficult match."
