Continuing his great form, Rafael Nadal and defending champion Novak Djokovic eased into the quarter-finals on a day reigning women’s champion Garbine Muguruza crashed out in the last 16 round of the French Open in Paris.

Nine-time champion Rafael Nadal thrashed Spanish 17th seed Roberto Bautista Agut 6-1, 6-2, 6-2 – a win that brought him at par with Roger Federer, who too has reached the French Open quarters eight times.

Meanwhile, last year’s winner Djokovic defeated 19th seed Albert Ramos-Vinolas to enter his 11th quarter-final round at Roland Garros. Djokovic won 7-6(5), 6-1, 6-3, even though his consultant coach Andre Agassi was not present in the stands.
