French Open 2011 Results: Novak Djokovic Keeps On Rolling, Earns Quarterfinals Berth

Novak Djokovic just keeps on winning. And so far, the streaking Serbian has run into little resistance at the 2011 French Open.

Djokovic punched his ticket to the second week of the Roland Garros fortnight with a dominant fourth round victory over Frenchman Richard Gasquet. Djokovic, who has yet to lose in 2011, dispatched Gasquet 6-4, 6-4, 6-2, hitting 33 winners to Gasquet's 16 and winning 89% of his first serve points.

Djokovic moves on to the quarterfinals, where he might have an even easier time. His quarterfinal opponent, Italy's Fabio Fognini, needed five sets and an extended fifth-set tiebreaker to beat Albert Montanes in the fourth round, and sustained a mysterious injury in that deciding fifth set. At full strength, Fognini would appear to be little trouble for Djokovic, the world's hottest player; with an injury and fatigued, he might be blown off the court in embarrassingly short order.

French Open 2011 Results: Roger Federer Moves On To Quarterfinals

Day 8 of the 2011 French Open is well underway, and one familiar name moved on to the quarterfinals by making quick work of a countryman. Third-seeded Roger Federer defeated fellow Swiss Stanislas Wawrinka, 6-3, 6-2, 7-5, to move on to the second week at Roland Garros.

Federer hit 32 winners and converted five of his six break points against Wawrinka, and made quick work of his fourth round opponent, winning his three sets in one hour and 46 minutes.

Federer has made the quarterfinals at the French Open in each trip to Roland Garros since 2005. But in 2010, he bowed out at the quarterfinal stage, his earliest exit since 2004.

Elsewhere at Roland Garros, Anastasia Pavyluchenkova upset third-seeded Vera Zvonareva, 7-6 (4), 2-6, 6-2, and Fabio Fognini moved on to the quarterfinals with a marathon 4-6, 6-4, 3-6, 6-3, 11-9 victory over Albert Montanes.
