PARIS (AP) — Fourth seed and former French Open winner Roger Federer has been bounced from this year's tournament. He was beaten in the fourth round by 18th seed Ernests Gulbis 6-7, 7-6, 6-2, 4-6, 6-3, ending Federer's streak of nine consecutive quarterfinals at the French Open. For Federer, a 17-time Grand Slam champion, it was the earliest exit at Roland Garros since 2004, when he was beaten in the third round by three-time champion Gustavo Kuerten.
Also on Sunday, second seed Novak Djokovic easily beat 13th-seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-1, 6-4, 6-1 in only 1½ hours to reach the quarterfinals for the 20th major tournament in a row. Djokovic needs a title at Roland Garros to complete a career Grand Slam.
Sixth seed Tomas Berdych has advanced to the quarterfinals with a win over 10th-seeded American John Isner, and No. 7 Andy Murray advanced to the fourth round.
In women's play seventh seed Maria Sharapova has reached the quarterfinals by taking the last nine games and beating Samantha Stosur 3-6, 6-4, 6-0. But No. 8 Angelique Kerber was ousted in the fourth round by Eugenie Bouchard, 6-1, 6-2.
