Radwanska loses to Cornet at French Open

Andy Murray- cropped

Stan Wawrinka reached the French Open quarterfinals for the fourth time after beating Gael Monfils 7-5, 7-6 (7), 6-2.

World number one Murray has struggled for form this year, but was back to something like his best in a 7-6 (10-8) 7-5 6-0 triumph over Juan Martin del Potro, who competed strongly for two sets before running out of gas.

Kei Nishikori survived a two-set blackout to beat Chung Hyeon 7-5 6-4 6-7 (4) 0-6 6-4 in their rain-delayed French Open third round tie on Sunday, winning the first ever all-Asian battle at this stage of the tournament. The Japanese will face Murray in the last-eight.

Saturday's other victor was Kevin Anderson, but the South African did not enjoy such an easy ride. Cilic is the first Croatian man in the quarter-finals since Mario Ancic and Ivan Ljubicic in 2006.

She won the next point to set up a match point, but wasted it when her drop shot sank into the net. "Even then I didn't go through the draw as comfortably as here".

That disappointment kick-started a nine-game losing run for Fognini, during which he received brief treatment on a knee issue.

Sebastian Vettel , with three wins from the opening six races, is 25 points ahead of Lewis Hamilton in the drivers' standings. While the Ferrari is cruising, the inconsistent Mercedes is struggling to find the right balance between front and rear axle.

The undemonstrative seventh seed joined Spain's Nadal, Austrian Dominic Thiem and next opponent Wawrinka as the four players to reach the quarters without conceding a set. He was the runner-up a year ago. The three-time Grand Slam champion has never won at Roland Garros, and never faced unseeded Russian Karen Khachanov, either.

Meanwhile, in the women's singles, Romania's third-seeded Simona Halep advanced to the fourth round, where she will compete with Spanish Carla Suarez for a place in the quarter-finals.

The 35-year-old Lopez had beaten Cilic twice before on clay - his only wins against him - but never looked in contention on Court Suzanne Lenglen.

Cilic, the 2014 U.S. Open champion, will next face either third-seeded Stan Wawrinka or No. 15 Gael Monfils.

Wawrinka has struggled for form since almost beating Roger Federer in the semi-finals of the Australian Open but is once again showing that he saves his best for the grand slams. I won three matches in three sets, against hard players.

Wawrinka won in a similar manner, as he was forced a tiebreak by the Italian Fabio Fognini.
