MADRID, Oct. 4 (Xinhua) -- FC Barcelona dropped its first points of the season when it was held to a 1-1 draw in the Camp Nou Stadium by Sevilla on Sunday night.
PARIS, Oct. 5 (Xinhua) -- Top seed Novak Djokovic encountered his toughest test at this year's Roland Garros so far on Monday, but the Serbian great still came through in straight sets 6-4, 6-3, 6-3 over No.15 seed Karen Khachanov to reach the last eight in French Open for 11 consecutive years.

CHENGDU, China, Oct. 7 (Xinhua) -- Dongguan inflicted the third consecutive loss on Wuhan, 80-62, in the Women's Chinese Basketball Association (WCBA) league here on Wednesday.
"We mainly worked on guarding their three-pointers, also doing well on 3-pointers and rebounds on our own," Dongguan coach Lin Yaosen commented.
"Schalke's squad is poorly composed. We are talking about the sins of the past," the 59-year-old said.
He will also miss the first four Champions League group matches in which Real Madrid line up against Inter Milan, Shakhtar Donetsk and Borussia Monchengladbach following Thursday's draw.
Getafe went top of the table with that win and Jose Bordalas' men now visit Real Sociedad, whose defeat to Valencia served to confirm that they are missing the support of their home fans. The side from San Sebastian has won just one and lost four of the eight home matches since football returned to Spain in empty stadiums in the middle of June, and on Saturday it will be without the injured Adnan Januzaj.
"We contained their three-pointer shooting quite well," Dongguan coach Lin Yaosen reflected.
"We've had an unbelievable group of players over the last two seasons and a squad of great people. I will miss them all hugely...I'd also like to say a massive thanks to the club for considering mine and my family's future and allowing me to make this move."
"We found several problems during the tournament and we will strengthen training in the future," he added.
