Roland Garros 2011 - Day 8

Djokovic continued to plough through anyone that was in his way, that being Richard Gasquet in Round 4. Gasquet had fought admirably and played some interesting four setters for the French crowd but Djokovic was just too much for him to take. Djokovic will face Fabio Fognini in the QF, definitely his best achievement to date.  Sadly I don't think Fabio will be any competition to Djokovic, whilst he beat his opponents fair and square none of them were up to the calibre of Djokovic.

Whilst Djokovic was ploughing through Federer was also doing some ploughing of himself, beating fellow Swiss Stanislas Wawrinka who played a great match against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Federer still should be someone to look out for as he hasn't dropped a set yet.

Whilst the last match, Ferrer Vs. Monfils has been suspended for the day. Monfils is currently leading 2 sets to 1 but Ferrer is leading 2-0 in the fourth set so it could possibly be a five set match - all the better for Roger Federer who plays the winner in the QF.

Whilst in the women's draw Wozniacki conqueror lost to Kuznetsova in three sets. Bartoli on the other hand was given an easy win by Dulko because she retired in the 2nd set, if Dulko was healthy it could have possibly gone into three sets.

The shock of the day was Vera Zvonareva's loss, though Vera wasn't a favourite and hasn't been playing to her best recently I think she was the slight favourite against Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova. Francesca Schiavone is looking more and more dangerous as she beat Jelena Jankovic in three sets. Could she retain her title?
