Muguruza advances to 4th round at French Open

Trouble brewed when facing break points with a healthy lead, though, with the umpire handing him a warning - something that bemused the Serb.

Fifth-seeded Milos Raonic of Canada also advanced to the fourth round when his opponent, Spain's Guillermo Garcia-Lopez, retired from the match with a left thigh injury. And the Spaniard held court in supremely commanding fashion on Friday, beating the unfortunate Basilashvili 6-0 6-1 6-0, the most comprehensive victory of his illustrious career at the grand slam venue in Paris. "He was happy to have gone through the first two matches and he could not bear it any more", Raonic told reporters.

The world No. 6 will meet either Grigor Dimitrov or Pablo Carreno Busta for a spot in the quarterfinals. "I take it when I can have it". "I will be watching in 20 years with all of you guys".

Serving for the set at 5-4, Goffin's demise gifted Argentine Horacio Zeballos passage into the fourth round. Goffin managed to get to the ball, lifting a lob over the Argentine but slipped in the process, hurting his ankle. The umpire announced minutes later that the 26-year-old was forced to retire.

As for Basilashvili, now ranked at 63 in the world, it's been a reasonably strong start to the French Open, played on his favoured surface.

Defending champion Novak Djokovic survived his first stern test at the French Open on Friday, as he came from two sets to one down to overcome world number 41 Diego Schwartzman 5-7 6-3 3-6 6-1 6-1 and move into the last 16.

Djokovic was given a code violation and two time violations in a tense encounter with the unseeded Argentinian, who rose to the occasion on the big stage but failed to pull off a shock.

The underdog came up with a sumptuous backhand as he served out the set and the second went with serve until Djokovic piled on the pressure to go 5-3 up when Schwartzman netted.

Basilashvili had to wait 11 games to win his first.

But there were too many unforced errors - 55 in total - and at costly times.

Muguruza swept into round four of the women's draw with a 7-5, 6-2 win over Kazakh 27th seed Yulia Putintseva.

Muguruza will face France's 13th seed Kristina Mladenovic in the last 16.

"I was expecting a very, very hard match but not something like this", Basilashvili told reporters. Ostapenko, 19, downed Ukraine's Lesia Tsurenko 6-1, 6-4 before admitting the Brazilian rhythms of the Samba are key to her success. "So I said, "I'll go early, since I have to be in Paris any way and I'll just get to know him". "My favourite dance is the Samba".
