Djokovic beats Bautista Agut to reach Italian Open QFs

The Spanish fourth seed, fresh from victory in a Madrid Masters triumph that saw him cruise past Serbian nemesis Novak Djokovic in the semis, will meet American Jack Sock in his third-round match later.

Djokovic, a four-time champion in Rome, will meet either Pablo Carreno Busta or Roberto Bautista Agut next.

This is something unheard of, and hence Djokovic will be desperate to win the ongoing Rome Masters, where he is set to face Juan Martin Del Potro in the quarterfinals on Friday.

The 27-year-old started the match in positive fashion with a break in the opening game but handed that advantage straight back in the next before the pair shared the following 10 games to take the set into a tie-break. I'm happy I reached the semi-finals in Madrid, which has been my best result this year.

Djokovic and Nadal progress
I'm happy I reached the semi-finals in Madrid, which has been my best result this year. "It came at the right time , of course". All the players are looking to raise their game for Paris. " I played a more aggressive game and I'm serving better ".

In a shock to Maria Sharapova, the French tennis federation refused to grant the five-time Grand Slam victor and twice Roland Garros champion a wild card to either the main draw or qualifying.

"I've been doing my best to optimise my game. right now, as days are passing by, I feel more comfortable on the court".

Another playing looking to up his game for the French Open is 2015 champion Stan Wawrinka but the world number three said a lack of confidence was to blame for his shock 7-6 (7/1), 6-4 defeat to big-serving American John Isner, who is ranked 24th in the world.

The Austrian fought off a double match point at 4-6 in the tiebreaker, then thwarted a third match point at 6-7 before surviving.

Cyberattack is 'wake-up call' for governments
The attacks exploited the computers because they were running outdated versions of Microsoft's Windows operating system. He adds that governments should report vulnerabilities like the one at the center of the WannaCry attack.

In the women s tournament, Venus Williams overcame determined Briton Johanna Konta to win their third-round clash 6-1, 3-6, 6-1.

Djokovic recently broke off his association with his coaching staff, playing in Madrid accompanied on the bench by his brother, Marko, and he said on Monday that he has not yet decided who will be his next coach.

Home favorite Fabio Fognini, who saw off top-seeded Andy Murray on Tuesday, lost 6-3, 6-3 to Alexander Zverev, who will play fifth-seeded Milos Raonic in the quarterfinals after the Canadian beat Tomas Berdych 6-3, 6-2.

First round: Anette Kontaveit bt Andrea Petkovic 6-3, 6-4; Ekatarina Makarova bt Roberta Vinci 6-2, 6-1; Kiki Bertens bt Monica Nicolescu 2-6, 6-2, 6-1; Daria Gavrilova bt Madison Keys 2-6, 7-5, 7-5.
