Djokovic, Muguzura, Nadal in action at French Open

Nadal has lost just 20 games in his four matches and is looking the odds on favourite to progress into the last four of the second Grand Slam of the year.

Spains Rafael Nadal serves during his fourth round match of the French Open against Spains Roberto Bautista Agut at the Roland Garros in Paris, on Sunday. "It's very important for me to be in the quarter-finals one more time", he said. "Now I have a day to rest and get ready".

The nine-time victor Nadal, who will now face either Milos Raonic or Pablo Busta in the last eight, now has a 76-2 win-loss record at Roland Garros.

Carreno Busta, seeded 20th, needed seven match points to clinch a thrilling 4-6, 7-6 (2), 6-7 (6), 6-4, 8-6 win over the 5th-seeded Raonic in 4 hours and 17 minutes.

The sixth seed's single-handed backhand ranks as one of the best shots in men's tennis but so far it has been feeble against Djokovic who he has scraped one set against in five matches and who thrashed him 6-1 6-0 in the Rome semi-finals.

The eighth-seeded Nishikori was leading 7-5, 6-4, 6-7 (4), 0-3 when rain stopped play as the 21-year-old Chung rallied.

Nishikori broke early in the fifth set and was serving for the match when Chung broke back, but the Japanese player sealed the result when his opponent double faulted.

RAFAEL Nadal's relentless march towards a 10th French Open title continues after the Spanish enforcer powered to another lopsided win. On the women's side, defending champion Garbine Muguruza also cruised through to the quarterfinals.

Monfils will now face Stan Wawrinka in the quarter finals.

Finally, Switzerland's Timea Bacsinszky defeated 2002 runner-up Venus Williams 5-7, 6-2, 6-1, while Danish 11th seed Caroline Wozniacki knocked out 2009 champion Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-1, 4-6, 6-2 to reach the last eight for just the second time.

Danish 11th seed Caroline Wozniacki knocked off 2009 champion Svetlana Kuznetsova of Russian Federation 6-1, 4-6, 6-2 to reach the last eight for just the second time.

He is now in a record-equalling 11th quarter-final at Roland Garros and 31st at all the majors.

"He is a one of the best players in the world, especially on this surface".

Pliskova, the Czech, beat Carina Witthoft of Germany 7-5 6-1, while Svitolina of Ukraine overcame Poland's Magda Linette 6-4 7-5. Second seed Karolina Pliskova and third seed Simona Halep are the current favorites, and they made it into the quarterfinals, where they'll play on Wednesday.

"I still can't believe that I'm sitting here".
