    Rafa Nadal and Li Na had decent workouts before sealing spots in the French Open quarter-finals on Monday but winning machine Novak Djokovic did not need to hit a ball to fast-forward into the last four.

    As the first rain spots of the tournament began to drip on fans zig-zagging their way among the Roland Garros boutiques and snack stalls, champion Nadal was criss-crossing centre court in his usual all-action style to beat Ivan Ljubicic 7-5, 6-3, 6-3.

    The Spaniard is still not quiet at his fluent best after struggling in the early rounds but he is peaking ominously.

    So is Australian Open runner-up Li who outlasted Czech ninth seed Petra Kvitova 2-6, 6-1, 6-3 on another humid day with thunderstorms forecast later. She is the first Chinese player to reach quarter-finals of the claycourt slam.

    After a lightning-quick third-round victory over Sorana Cirstea, sixth seed Li was given a much tougher test but again impressed the tennis connoisseurs on Court Philippe Chatrier with her dogged determination and weight of shot.

    ...being a human...
