  • Print

PARIS - Milos Raonic became the first Canadian man in the Open era to reach the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam tournament by defeating Marcel Granollers of Spain 6-3, 6-3, 6-3 in the fourth round of the French Open on Sunday.

The eighth-seeded Raonic broke Granollers four times and saved the only two break points he faced.

Relying on his powerful serve and forehand, Raonic made 54 winners to only 14 for Granollers, a clay-court specialist.

Raonic will face second-seeded Novak Djokovic of Serbia, who beat No. 13 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France 6-1, 6-4, 6-1.

The Open era started in 1968.
