Second seed Nadal improved his record against Gasquet to a perfect 18-0 with a clinical beatdown of his close friend on the Arthur Ashe Stadium court.
Nadal's 6-0, 6-1, 7-5 victory in two-hour, 17-minute sees him advance to a meeting with American 22nd seed Frances Tiafoe on Monday for a place in the quarterfinals.
"He's a great player, he's very charismatic, very fast," Nadal said of Tiafoe. "He can play very aggressive, I need to keep improving to keep playing better and better to have chances to get through."Get the latest news
Nadal was left with a bloody nose on Thursday when he accidentally struck himself in the face with his racquet but reported no lingering effects on Saturday.
"It's a little bit bigger than usual but it's okay," Nadal said. "The nose is still there."
Nadal and Gasquet, who came up through the ranks of junior tennis together, first met as professionals on clay in Estoril 2004, with Nadal winning in three sets.
Since that first encounter, the duo's head-to-head record has been a story of unrelenting dominance by Nadal.
Gasquet has only taken four sets off the Spanish master, the last of which came at the Canadian Masters in 2008.
Saturday's encounter again followed the same script, with Nadal showing no mercy as he raced to a crushing win.
Nadal used his blistering groundstrokes to dominate Gasquet, unfurling a series of 35 pinpoint winners into the corners to torment his opponent.
Gasquet almost got an early confidence boost in the opening set, when in the first game he grabbed three break points at 0-40.
