Nadal wins; Muguruza crashes out of French Open

Nadal wins; Muguruza crashes out of French Open

Eighth seed Nishikori edged the first two sets, but 21-year-old Chung kept his cool to shade a third-set tie-break and moved a double break ahead in fourth at 3-0 before play was suspended.

The 25-year-old Carreno Busta reaches the quarterfinals at Roland Garros for the first time in his career.

Simona Halep advanced to the semifinals of the French Open after saving a match point, beating Elina Svitolina 3-6, 7-6 (6), 6-0.

The fourth seed will face either Canada's Milos Raonic or Spain's Pablo Carreno Busta for a place in the semi-finals. "I won?" - Nishikori, when asked what he remembers from his match against upcoming opponent Murray in the U.S. Open quarterfinals in September.

His victory was not quite as simple as Fridays incredible 6-0, 6-1, 6-0 defeat of Nikoloz Basilashvili but fourth seed Nadal has not dropped a set yet.

I'm aware that I'm also one of the players that is on the radar because of my ball bouncing, because of my certain routines that I'm late in certain times of the match. Thiem has won just one set against Djokovic, and this will be their third meeting on clay.

After losing the Australian Open final to Federer in a five-set thriller - and then twice more to Federer on hard courts - Nadal has been in fine form on clay, winning titles at Monte Carlo, Barcelona and Madrid.

In the absence of new coach Andre Agassi, who had been scheduled to leave Paris for a prior engagement, Djokovic was well below his best on Court Philippe Chatrier during an underwhelming start to the last singles match of the opening week at Roland Garros.

A year ago, Djokovic became the first man in almost a half-century to claim a fourth consecutive major championship and completed a career Grand Slam at Roland Garros.

It was clear the 12-time Grand Slam champion's level of consistency had improved dramatically - making just five unforced errors in the second in comparison with the 18 made in the first - and Ramos-Vinolas simply had no answers for his fine ball striking and varied play.

Pentagon announces ICBM interceptor system a success

Serbia's Novak Djokovic slips in his quarterfinal match of the French Open tennis tournament against Austria's Dominic Thiem at the Roland Garros stadium, in Paris, France.

"It was ideal today, I'm very satisfied", said reigning US Open champion Wawrinka after a 12th win in 14 meetings with Cilic.

Muguruza won only 15 points in the first set and, although she rallied to take it to a third, could not match French 13th seed Mladenovic.

"I don't know how many games I lost this year, but I really don't care about this". 'I played against a very good player, and I was able to win in straight sets with very positive result.

Thiem's game and run through the second grand slam of the year has been modeled on playing with plenty of depth and running opponents off the court, simply focusing on a powerful ground stroke game.
