Big names such as Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Dominic Thiem, who are all in the quarter-finals. 

However, Swiss tennis icon and 12-time French Open champion Roger Federer is missing from this year's tournament as he is nursing a knee injury.

“When you ask me about Roger Federer’s record, I always say the same. I made my entire career in my way and will keep doing that. I’m not obsessed with those 20 Major titles," Nadal said. 

"I can’t always think about Roger or Novak Djokovic and our race for most Majors. I know journalists put a lot of attention on that. I would love to finish my career on 25 Majors, but that’s unlikely to happen. 

“I’m going to fight and create chances; we will see when I finish my career. I want to keep enjoying tennis, that’s all. If I’m playing on a high level, I’m a Major contender. If not, it’s impossible to win it.”

While Australian star Ashleigh Barty was the defending champion in women's singles.
