Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams kept their time in blazing conditions to a bare minimum on Monday (US time) as they breezed into the US Open quarterfinals but Eugenie Bouchard's hopes of a maiden Grand Slam title melted away in the heat.


Djokovic charged past Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-1 Justin Holiday Jersey , 7-5, 6-4 to set up a blockbuster meeting with longtime rival Andy Murray, who booked his own place in the last eight with a steamy 7-5, 7-5, 6-4 win over ninth-seeded Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.


Williams warmed up for her match in the midday sun sporting a black dinner jacket over her pink leopard print dress and then turned back the frustrations of a disappointing season at the majors by hammering Estonia's Kaia Kanepi 6-3, 6-3.


Gunning for her third consecutive US Open title Bobby Portis Jersey , Williams made something of a Grand Slam breakthrough for 2014 by reaching the last eight.


"I finally made a quarterfinal this year!" she shouted to the -Arthur Ashe Stadium crowd with arms upraised. "Glad to do it in New York."


Next up for Williams is Italian 11th seed Flavia Pennetta, a semifinalist last year, who advanced with a 7-5, 6-2 win against 29th-seeded Australian Casey Dellacqua.


World No.1s Williams and Djokovic have moved imperiously through their draws without dropping a set but the Serb, a US Open finalist for the last four years, will be wary of his upcoming showdown with Murray.


Though Murray is seeded eighth after a sub-par season following last year's back surgery Jerian Grant Jersey , the Scotsman is approaching top form and has some positive memories of playing Wimbledon champion Djokovic in the Grand Slams.


Murray beat the Serb to win the 2012 US Open and the 2013 Wimbledon for his two Grand Slam titles.


Swiss third seed Stan Wawrinka, 10th seed Kei -Nishikori and twice Australian Open champion Victoria -Azarenka avoided the worst of the heat by playing under the evening floodlights but they were still made to sweat for their wins.


Wawrinka fought off two set points in the pivotal third set on the way to a 7-5, 4-6, 7-6 (97), 6-2 win over Tommy Robredo and the Australian Open champion was then able to rest up and watch his next opponent, Nishikori Dennis Rodman Jersey , slug it out with Milos Raonic.


No one worked harder, or -longer, for their victory than -Japan's Nishikori, who needed five sets and four hours and 19 minutes to tame fifth-seeded -Canadian Raonic 4-6, 7-6 (74), 6-7 (68) Scottie Pippen Jersey , 7-5, 6-4. The marathon contest equaled the latest finishing match ever played at the US Open with the two exhausted players walking off the Arthur Ashe Stadium court at 02:26 am local time (06:26 GMT).


With on-court -temperatures hovering near 38 C, it was -another day of survival of the fittest at Flushing Meadows and seventh seed Bouchard was -simply not up to the challenge.


The 20-year-old Canadian's bid for a fourth consecutive Grand Slam semifinal appearance came to a distressing end with a 7-6 (72), 6-4 loss to Russian Ekaterina Makarova.


Makarova will next face 16th seed Azarenka, who overcame an inspired challenge from qualifier Aleksandra Krunic 4-6, 6-4 Toni Kukoc Jersey , 6-4 to end the diminutive Serb's magical run to the fourth round.

BERLIN: Pilots at German flag carrier Lufthansa will resume their strike on Tuesday and Wednesday, their union said, as talks over a dispute concerning wages ended without a resolution.


Pilots' union Cockpit said it was calling on members flying short-haul flights to stay away from work on Tuesday, and those flying both short and long-haul destinations to stage a walkout on Wednesday.


""Unfortunately, high-level talks held today at short notice failed to lead to an agreement on the wage contract,"" said Joerg Handwerg John Paxson Jersey , board member at Cockpit.


""It is completely incomprehensible that (Lufthansa) has refused to put forward an offer that can at least form the basis of a negotiation,"" he added.


Lufthansa was forced to cancel more than 2,700 flights, affecting over 300,000 passengers, after pilots went on strike from Wednesday to Saturday in their 14th walkout since April 2014.


To resolve the long-running dispute Chicago Bulls Zach LaVine Jersey , Lufthansa on Friday said it could offer a 2.4-per cent pay rise in 2016, going up by another two percent to reach 4.4 per cent in 2017.


Pilots would also receive a one-off payment equivalent to nearly two months' wages.


The airline had previously proposed a 2.5-per cent wage hike.


But Friday's offer was swiftly rejected by Cockpit, which has been demanding a pay rise of an average of 3.66 percent per year, retroactive for the past five years.


The German carrier has been battling a series of walkouts by both the pilots and cabin crew over the past two years, as it seeks to bring down costs to survive competition from budget rivals such as EasyJet and Ryanair.


In July, it ended a long-running dispute with cabin crew through a deal on pay and working conditions Chicago Bulls Michael Jordan Jersey , including a no-strike agreement and job guarantees until 2021.


The breakthrough came after cabin staff staged the longest walkout in Lufthansa's history last November, with a seven-day stoppage that led to 4,700 flight cancellations and grounded over half a million passengers.


The airline said last month that it expects its annual earnings before interest and tax will reach ""approximately the previous year's level"" of 1.8 billion euros.
