Paris June 04(Agencies)
In Tennis, top seed Novak Djokovic and Kei Nishikori have reached the men's singles quarter-finals of French Open at Paris on Monday.

Djokovic created a piece of French Open history by becoming the first man to reach a 10th consecutive quarter-final after a routine win over Germany's Jan-Lennard Struff.

The 32-year-old Serb, aiming to hold all four Grand Slams at the same time, won 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 in one hour 33 minutes. Djokovic has not dropped a set at this year's Roland Garros.

Kei Nishikori clinches a thriller against Benoit Paire. Nishikori reaches the quarterfinals for the third time after the match lasted 3 hours and 55 minutes.

In Women's Singles, Madison Keys and Ashleigh Barty have also reached quarterfinals. American Madison Keys beat Katerina Siniakova in straight sets to set up a French Open quarter-final against Australian eighth seed Ashleigh Barty.

Keys, a semi-finalist at Roland Garros last year, progressed in one hour 16 minutes with a 6-2, 6-4 victory over the 23-year-old Czech.
Barty, meanwhile, needed three sets to see off American Sofia Kenin, 20, who previously knocked out Serena Williams. Barty eventually won 6-3, 3-6, 6-0.
