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.

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.
