Paris, France (SportsNetwork.com) - Eight-time champion Rafael Nadal and last years runner-up David Ferrer were a pair of easy winners Saturday at the French Open. The world No. 1 great Nadal improved to 3-0 lifetime against Leonardo Mayer by handling the Argentine 6-2, 7-5, 6-2 on the Spaniards beloved red clay at Court Chatrier. Nadal is now 62-1 lifetime at Roland Garros, where hes won four straight and eight of the last nine titles. He beat Ferrer in last years all-Spanish finale and has won his last 31 matches overall at this Parisian major. The 27-year-old Nadal is trying to become the first man to win five straight French Open titles. The reigning French and U.S. Open champions fourth-round opponent will be talented Serb Dusan Lajovic. The fifth-seeded Ferrer, meanwhile, got past 32nd-seeded Italian Andreas Seppi 6-2, 7-6 (7-2), 6-3 on Day 7. Ferrer posted his 35th win at Roland Garros, one shy of Alex Corretja for the second-most by a Spaniard at this clay-court Grand Slam, and continued his dominance of Seppi, beating the Italian for the seventh time in as many meetings without dropping a set. Ferrer, like Nadal, did not lose a set in Week 1 in Paris. Seppi fell to 6-64 all-time against top-10 players, including only one win in his last 50 tries. Ferrer will next play Kevin Anderson. The 19th-seeded South African slugger earned a spot in the round of 16 when Croatias Ivo Karlovic retired with an apparent back injury after dropping the first set 6-3. Anderson has matched his best showing at a Grand Slam. Last year, he became the first South African man to reach the fourth round at the French Open since Wayne Ferreira in 1996. Flashy Frenchman Gael Monfils, seeded 23rd, posted an upset by tackling 14th- seeded Italian Fabio Fognini 5-7, 6-2, 6-4, 0-6, 6-2, while the aforementioned Lajovic moved into the round of 16 by defeating American Jack Sock 6-4, 7-5, 6-3. The 83rd-ranked Lajovic is playing in only his second major tournament. He lost in the second round to Japans Kei Nishikori at the Australian Open in January. "Its my first Roland Garros main draw appearance and first time in the fourth round, so I cant be more happy than this," said Lajovic. "Maybe to play Rafa on Chatrier is one of the biggest dreams and biggest challenges. So for sure its not going to be easy. "You need to have a lot of tips and confidence to beat [Nadal], but I hope to enjoy the match if he wins and to give my best." Also on Saturday, Spaniard Marcel Granollers overcame Slovak Martin Klizan, 6-7 (5-7), 6-2, 7-6 (7-4), 7-5 and Spains Guillermo Garcia-Lopez outlasted American left-hander Donald Young 6-2, 6-4, 2-6, 6-7 (4-7), 6-4.

And thats quite a turnaround from how things seemed less than a week ago. LeBron James fought through a sore back to score 32 points, Chris Bosh added 18 and the Heat used another strong defensive effort to beat the Toronto Raptors 93-83 on Monday night. The win pushed the two-time defending NBA champions percentage points ahead of the struggling Indiana Pacers in the race for the No. 1 seed in the East. "It doesnt feel like anything," James said. "The standings are what they are. We want to play the best we can and the fact that we are in first place, I think thats pretty cool but weve got so much work to do. Weve got too much work to do. Weve got guys that need to get healthy. We havent even talked about it. We probably wont talk about it. Weve got to play the season out." Chris Andersen scored 13 points on 5-for-5 shooting and Mario Chalmers added 12 for Miami (51-22), which was again without Dwyane Wade (hamstring), Greg Oden (back) and Ray Allen (flu). Indiana (52-23) lost at home earlier Monday night to San Antonio, 103-77. "The No. 1 seed is the last thing on our minds right now," Pacers coach Frank Vogel said after his teams loss. The Heat -- who were three games out in the East after losing at Indiana on Wednesday -- are basically saying the same thing. Sure, its a neat perk -- Heat coach Erik Spoelstra called it an "ancillary" effect of hard work -- and Bosh acknowledged the outcomes Monday merited a very subtle fist-pump from him. But theres still plenty of time for things to change, and Miami is thinking more about getting those who are hurt and sick back into rhythm with the playoffs coming up in less than three weeks. "Were aware of it," Spoelstra said of the standings. "Its not that were naive to it. I didnt talk about it. ... These were pros that were getting ready for battle and its thhat type of focus, thats the type of thing were trying to stress right now, the process of building those habits.dddddddddddd. The results will follow. They tend to take care of themselves." Greivis Vasquez scored 17 points, DeMar DeRozan scored 16 and Jonas Valanciunas finished with 14 points and 10 rebounds for the Raptors. Steve Novak added 13 for Toronto, which lost Kyle Lowry to a sore left knee late in the third quarter after he collided with James. "It was a hard-fought game -- basketball at a high level," Vasquez said. "We lost it in the third period. We came out too relaxed. We didnt attack the basket. Everything worked for them." Lowrys knee swelled, Raptors coach Dwane Casey said, and that hardly sounds like good news for a team fighting for the No. 3 spot in the East. "He bumped knees," Casey said. "It puffed up a little bit. X-rays were negative. We just have to wait and see how he is tomorrow." The Heat were down 10 midway through the second quarter, and then closed the half on a 22-9 run to take the lead and never trailed again. Bosh had consecutive baskets in the fourth quarter, the last of them an easy breakaway, to put Miami up by nine. A possession later, after a 3-pointer from Vasquez, James split a pair of defenders on the dribble and found Toney Douglas for a right-wing 3. And after a stop on the ensuing Miami trip, James got a wild layup to fall while getting fouled. Moments later, the Heat could look at the standings and finally see themselves on top. "We could still lose it," Bosh said. "That reality is there. We just have to keep concentrating on what weve been doing." NOTES: Miami has now won 15 straight against the Raptors, the last 14 of those meetings coming since Bosh left Toronto and joined the Heat during the summer of 2010. ... Monday was the start of a five-game homestand for the Heat, who face Milwaukee, Minnesota, New York and Brooklyn. ' ' '
