Rafael Nadal is using Babolat's connected Play technology—read about on the technology's debut here—during this year's French Open, making portions of the data public following each match as he looks to win his tenth Grand Slam title at Roland Garros in 2015. The racket technology can track everything from stroke type, shot power, spin, rally length, play time and even the location on the string bed where the ball struck the synthetic gut. 

See the chart below for Nadal's first-round straight-set victory over Quentin Halys and check back after each of Nadal's matches at the French Open for more data.
