Rafael Nadal beat Richard Gasquet 6-2, 6-2, 6-3 in his first match at a major tournament since he was upset in the fourth round of the French Open on May 31. With tendinitis in both his knees, Nadal's layoff led to his drop in the rankings from No. 1 to No. 3. Gasquet recently came off a 2 1/2-month suspension for testing positive for cocaine and appealed what would have been a longer ban, saying the drug entered his system when he kissed a woman at a nightclub.
