Serena and Djokovic through to the quarterfinals of French open 2016

New Delhi: Serena Williams and Novak Djokovic made it through to the quarter-finals as rain interfered at the French Open on Wednesday.

Serena outplayed Ukraine's Elina Svitolina 6-1, 6-1 in their rain-delayed fourth-round match while Djokovic managed a 3-6, 6-4, 6-1, 7-5 win over Spain's Roberto Bautista Agut, having resumed in the third set.

World number one Serena Williams played brilliantly as she saw off 18th seed Svitolina in just 62 minutes, making it 18 sets in a row for the American at Roland Garros.

She will next play Yulia Putintseva of Kazakhstan, who beat Spanish 12th seed Carla Suarez Navarro 7-5 7-5.
