Alcarez-Daniil Medvedev in the pre-quarterfinals, number one Svitek also reached the last-16, Azarenka out

Spain's new star Carlos Alcarez and world number two Russia's Daniil Medvedev have advanced to the fourth round of the French Open. In the women's section, two-time Grand Slam winner Victoria Azarenka had to suffer a setback. Poland's world number one Inga Svitek reached the last-16.

Carlos squares off with Korda
Alvarez defeated Sebastian Korda of America 6-4, 6-4, 6-2 in the third round. With this victory, Carlos also paid for his loss to Korda in Monte Carlo last month. This was the only defeat for Alcarez this season on claycourt so far. Medvedev defeated Miomir Kekmenovich of Serbia 6-2, 6-4, 6-2. Alcarez said- I play aggressively and that's the style I like. It doesn't matter whether I win or lose, whether the match is easy or difficult.


So far Danil has not lost a single set. Now in the pre-quarters, he will face the winner of the match between France's Giles Simone and Croatia's Marin Cilic. Medvedev's best performance at Rola Garro, who underwent a hernia operation in April, was last year's quarter-final entry.

Twenty-four-year-old Danil will next face Italy's 11th seed Janic Sinner, who defeated Mackenzie MacDonald of America 6-3, 7-6, 6-3. Among the players who reached the last 16 are Novak Djokovic defending champion of Serbia, and 13-time winner Rafael Nadal of Spain.

Swiss star Jill turned upside down
In the women's section, Victoria Azarenka was defeated by Jill Teichmann of Switzerland 4-6, 7-5, 7-6 in a three-set match that lasted three hours and 18 minutes. Azarenka, 32, was the winner of the Australian Open in 2012 and 2013. Jill, 24, will face American Sloane Stephens, who defeated France's Diane Perry 6-2, 6-3 in the third round.

Title contender Inga Svitek defeated world number 95 Danka Kovinic of Montenegro 6-3, 7-5. Switek is one of the top three seeded players in the top ten. Now he will face China's Zheng Qinwen. Poland's Inga Switake had her 31st consecutive win on the WTA Tour.
