Witthoeft arrives late to French Open match

His best showing in Paris was a semifinal run in 2008.

His match with Bautista Agut lasted an hour and 51 minutes. He won in less than two hours. "It's very disturbing that one of the biggest cities in the world, most important cities in the world, some of the most popular locations in the town, suffering these terrorist attacks", the second-ranked Djokovic said.

He will face another Spaniard, Pablo Carreno Busta, in the last eight.

Two weeks past his 21st birthday, unseeded Karen Khachanov of Russian Federation became the youngest man to reach the French Open's fourth round since 2009, beating 21st-seeded American John Isner 7-6 (1), 6-3, 6-7 (5), 7-6 (3).

Britain suffered its third major attack in three months when men using a van and knives killed seven people in a busy area of London on Saturday night. The 11th seed couldn't handle the Spaniard's deep and pummelling groundstrokes That seemed to melt the steel in his game and threw away a 4-0 lead in the first set to lose the match in straight sets and exit the tournament earlier than expected.

The 11th-seeded Wozniacki is a two-time runner-up at majors.

The Serb recovered to secure the second set but with 42 unforced errors in the first three sets alone, including a backhand that flew long to hand Schwartzman the third, he struggled for consistency. Wozniacki also broke in half of Kuznetsova's 12 service games.

The French Open continues until next weekend.

The 22-year-old victor of the Taipei, Dubai, Istanbul and Rome tournaments will play the next round against Croatian Petra Martic, who defeated Latvian Anastasija Sevastova, 6-1, 6-1.

Nadal cruises into quarters
Croatian qualifier Petra Martic upset 17th-seeded Anastasija Sevastova 6-1 6-1 to reach the fourth round of the French Open. Pablo Carreno Busta is coming off a five set win over Milos Raonic that took 60 games to decide.

The 21-year-old went on to win that set to love but Nishikori hit back to triumph 7-5 6-4 6-7 (4/7) 0-6 6-4 and next meets Fernando Verdasco. Stosur was also bundled out, while Elina Svitolina and Karolina Pliskova won through to the fourth round.

The number of winners he struck in the match could be counted on one hand, and his 34 unforced errors nearly matched the entire number of points he won all match - 36. She will next face the victor of the match between Veronica Cepede Royg and Mariana Duque-Marina.

Nishikori had been two sets up but Chung fought back and was 3-0 up in the fourth when play was called off. However, a win would take her to the quarter finals, a first for her since 2006.

Nadal's runaway triumph was his 99th in 101 best-of-five claycourt contests.

Nadal, 31, is looking to become the first man to win 10 titles at a single Grand Slam event.

So after her title defence ended with a 6-1, 3-6, 6-3 loss to 13th-seeded Kristina Mladenovic at a packed and rowdy Court Suzanne Lenglen on a surprise-filled Sunday that left zero past Grand Slam champions in the women's field, Muguruza walked toward the locker room while wagging a finger toward the stands, as if to say, "Tsk, tsk!"

He'll play defending champion Novak Djokovic in the last eight after the Serbian Defending champion eased past claycourt specialist Alberto Ramos-Vinolas 7-6 (5) 6-1 6-3.

After a nervy opening set, Spanish fourth seed Muguruza rallied but 13th-seeded Frenchwoman Mladenovic made her shots when it mattered to set up a meeting with Timea Bascinszky, who beat Venus Williams.
