Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic earn places in the last 16 at Roland Garros after respective four-set victories on Friday. Headlines were also made by Ernests Gulbis and a women’s match between Angelique Kerber and Daniela Hantuchova.
Roger Federer is through to the last 16 at Roland Garros after holding off Dmitry Tursunov 7-5, 6-7(7), 6-2, 6-4 on Friday. Federer became the first man to reach the French Open fourth round on 12 occasions. He is joined there by Novak Djokovic–a four-set winner over Marin Cilic–and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, who thrashed Jerzy Janowicz in straight sets.
“At the start of my career, clay was not my favorite surface,” Federer reflected. “I got my best results in indoor courts or hard courts, so people thought at that time that I was only a fast-court player. But that’s not the case, so I’m very happy with this record, and I’m enjoying it.”
