Djokovic, Muguzura, Nadal in action at French Open

Djokovic, Muguzura, Nadal in action at French Open”

He won in less than two hours.

"I am in the quarter-finals, I am happy and I am playing well".

The sound of ball-striking, grunts and rabid fans gave way to the steady clatter of rain landing on the grounds of Roland Garros.

Moments later, just about to face a break point, Djokovic yelled at himself, mostly in Serbian.

"Svetlana's a great player, especially on clay so I knew it wouldn't be easy", said Wozniacki, a two-time US Open runner-up.

A van rammed into pedestrians on London Bridge and three attackers with knifes charged out and stabbed others nearby. For the first time this fortnight, play was suspended for a lengthy period and was eventually canceled for the day around 7 p.m. local time. Djokovic is coming off his cleanest match of the tournament in which he had just 30 unforced errors and was broken three times.

RAFAEL Nadal's relentless march towards a 10th French Open title continues after the Spanish enforcer powered to another lopsided win. Wozniacki also broke in half of Kuznetsova's 12 service games.

Heading into this French Open, many figured the women's draw was wide open, because of the absences of Williams' sister, Serena, and Maria Sharapova. "If you had been in my shoes on the court, I think you would have understood", defending champion Garbine Muguruza on the partisan French crowd's behaviour during her loss to local hope Kristina Mladenovic - Muguruza would later break down in tears.

Talking about his upcoming challenge against Dominic Theim, Djokovic said, "There's no easy match in a Grand Slam quarter-final, it will be very hard for both of us".

In remaining women's third-round matches, second-seeded Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic brushed aside Germany's Carina Witthoeft, 7-5, 6-1; No. 5 Elina Svitolina of Ukraine won, 6-4, 7-5, against Magda Linette, and Croatian qualifier Petra Martic upset 17th-seeded Anastasija Sevastova, 6-1 6-1.

Although Dominic Thiem hasn't lost a set at the 2017 French Open, it's understandable that he's flying under the radar a bit.

The 15th-seeded Monfils was leading No. 24 seed Gasquet 7-6 (5), 5-7, 4-3 when play stopped. She will next face the victor of the match between Veronica Cepede Royg and Mariana Duque-Marina.

Some other notable matches were Andy Murray's statement win over Juan Martín del Potro, Pablo Carreño Busta's big win over Milos Raonic, and Kei Nishikori's five-set win over Hyeon Chung.

It was the first time in the Open era that two Asian men had met as late as the third round in a Grand Slam tournament.

World number two Djokovic could match that record when he faces Albert Ramos-Vinolas later on Sunday.
