A bad back and a recent bout of bad luck on the clay couldn't stop Rafael Nadal in the fourth round. Coming into the French Open with three losses this year on clay, the No. 1 seeded Nadal made quick work of Dusan Lajovic yesterday, winning 6-1, 6-2, 6-1. If Nadal was in pain, he sure didn't show it, as he absolutely dominated and went one stretch with 18 straight points. This marks 32 consecutive wins at Roland Garros for Nadal, improving to a remarkable 63-1 career record in Paris.  And if you thought the stars only came out for basketball, think again, because the legend Prince was in attendance to watch Nadal in action. After the match, Nadal offered little insight on his problematic back issues: "My back can be pretty unpredictable. I'm not lying. It's totally unpredictable. I don't want to speak too much about it."

On the men's singles front, David Ferrer, Andy Murray, and Gael Monfils also advanced. Be sure to hit the gallery above for a full rundown of their shoes, as well as the best of last night's MLB cleats.
