Marcel Granollers (#56) of Spain gets to the fourth round of the French Open for the third time. This is the grand slam where he has performed the best. He was in the fourth round in 2012 and 2014.
His path to the fourth round first began with defeating Italian player Fabio Fognini (#33) of Italy 75 64 63, who was seeded in this tournament. In a strange twist of good luck, his second round opponent, Nicolas Mahut (#44) of France retired 62 62 10, and then his third round opponent, Rafael Nadal (#5) of Spain withdrew suddenly because of a wrist injury.
So Granollers has had enough time to rest before his fourth round match. He is still awaiting the result between Alexande Zverev (#41) of Germany and Dominic Thiem (#15) of Austria.
