Employee ties threads on a kite, with portraits of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and U.S. President Barack Obama, ahead of Obama's visit, in MumbaiBy Sanjeev Miglani and Douglas Busvine NEW DELHI (Reuters) - In a glow of bonhomie, U.S. President Barack Obama and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi worked on a series of bilateral agreements at a summit on Sunday that both sides hope will establish an enduring strategic partnership. Indian media reported that negotiators had broken an impasse that has long stood in the way of civil nuclear trade and was one of the major irritants in bilateral ties.. They ironed out differences over the liability of suppliers to India in the event of a nuclear accident and the United States dropped a demand to be able to track the whereabouts of material supplied to the country, TV news networks said. The White House declined to comment on the reports and the spokesman for India's Ministry of External Affairs said only "we hope for a positive outcome at the end of the day". Signaling his determination to take ties to a higher level, Modi broke with protocol to meet and bear-hug Obama as he landed in New Delhi earlier in the day.

Russia's Maria Sharapova stretches for a forehand during her Australian Open fourth round match against Peng Shuai in Melbourne on January 25, 2015Maria Sharapova was all business as she raced into the Australian Open quarter-finals on Sunday to set up a glamour showdown with Eugenie Bouchard, as Rafael Nadal continued his unrelenting Grand Slam march. The Russian world number two ended Chinese hopes by swatting aside 21st seed Peng Shuai 6-3, 6-0 as she lifts her game the deeper she gets in the tournament. It hands organisers a dream last eight clash between two of the most marketable players on tour with Canadian seventh seed Bouchard surviving a mid-match slump to defeat unseeded Irina-Camelia Begu of Romania in three sets. Nadal, a 14-time Grand Slam champion, was dominant after a tight first set against power-hitting South African Kevin Anderson, running out a 7-5, 6-1, 6-4 winner and will next play Czech Tomas Berdych for a place in the semi-finals.
