Djokovic, Muguzura, Nadal in action at French Open

Djokovic, Muguzura, Nadal in action at French Open

So after her title defense ended with a 6-1, 3-6, 6-3 loss to 13th-seeded Kristina Mladenovic at a packed and rowdy Court Suzanne Lenglen on a surprise-filled Sunday that left zero past Grand Slam champions in the women's field, Muguruza walked toward the locker room while wagging a finger toward the stands, as if to say, "Tsk, tsk!"

A year after showing so much resolve while winning the French Open, Muguruza fell apart down the stretch.

FACT OF THE DAY: The white lines on courts at Roland Garros are marked out with thread and scraped to 6 cm wide, down to the limestone layer under the red dust that covers the courts.

Muguruza, who was seeded No. 4 in Paris, beat Serena Williams in the French Open final past year.

Mladenovic had never made it past the third round in Paris. It was a competitive match between Suarez Navarro and Vesnina, but Suarez Navarro won 6-4 in both sets. Her best French Open showing was in 2002, when she lost to Serena in the final. "It's all behind me now, so whatever happens in this tournament is not necessarily my concern anymore".

Marin Cilic progressed to the fourth round with a dominant 6-1, 6-3, 6-3 win over Feliciano Lopez, but Kyle Edmund won't join Murray in the fourth round after he exited at the hands of Kevin Anderson.

Isner was the last USA man in the draw of 11 who entered the tournament.

Only once in his Grand Slam career did Nadal fare better on the way to the quarterfinals at a major: He lost 19 games through four matches in 2012 at the French Open.

Cornet will face compatriot and No. 28 seed Caroline Garcia in the next round after she defeated Su-Wei Hsieh 6-4, 4-6, 9-7, meaning at least one of France's Roland Garros hopefuls will leave the tournament on Sunday.

The eighth-seeded Nishikori was leading 7-5, 6-4, 6-7 (4), 0-3 when rain stopped play on Saturday, but was clearly struggling with a wrist injury and had also had treatment on his back as the 21-year-old Chung rallied.

There were two upsets on the day in the women's singles tournament.

Earlier, Rafael Nadal tied Roger Federer's record by reaching the French Open quarterfinals for the 11th time.

Seven-time major champion Venus Williams is bidding for a quarterfinal spot against No. 30 Timea Bacsinszky.

Cilic, the 2014 U.S. Open champion, will next face either third-seeded Stan Wawrinka or No. 15 Gael Monfils.
