Spanish tennis ace Rafael Nadal breezed into the semifinals at Roland Garros after his opponent Carreno Busta retired from the quarterfinal encounter played on Wednesday. 

The nine-time French Open champion had a commanding 6-2, 2-0 lead when Carreno Busta stopped. It was not immediately clear what was wrong with Carreno Busta.

The 20th-seeded Pablo Carreno-Busta had taken a medical timeout after the opening set. Nadal will next face either second-seeded Novak Djokovic or sixth-seeded Dominic Thiem on Friday.
