There are no surprises after the first week of the french open, as seven of the eight top-seeded players reached the quarterfinals. All of the top four seeds won in straight sets, while the others had different ways to victory. Let's see what happened in the 4th round of the mens draw.

Nadal continues to dominate

After losing just one game against Nikoloz Basilashvili, Rafael Nadal didn't have a demanding task against his countryman Roberto Bautista Agut. Nadal won after 1 hour and 54 minutes of play, while losing only five games in the match. He converted 7 of his 18 break point chances, hit 31 winners, and won 32 points more than his opponent.

Nadal's next opponent, Pablo Carreno Busta, defeated Milos Raonic in a thriller after 4 hours and 21 minutes. Carreno Busta was one break down in the fifth set against a big server in Raonic, but he broke his serve twice and had a chance to finish the job with his service game. He had three match points on his serve in the tenth game of the deciding set, but he couldn't find his way to victory at that point. He did it a few minutes later and finally took advantage on his seventh match point. The final score was 6-4 6-7 7-6 4-6 6-8.

Dominic Thiem didn't have any problems against Horacio Zeballos, as he beat the Argentinian after just 1 hour and 42 minutes of play, while losing only five games.

Thiem was fantastic on his serve, as he won 92 percent of the points played after his first serve.

Novak Dokovic reached the quarterfinals after a victory against Albert Ramos. Novak had some trouble at the beginning, but he won the first set in the tie break after 1 hour and 14 minutes of play. He was very confident after that, leaving Ramos without a chance to win the set.

Murray, Wawrinka advance to the quarterfinals as well

Andy Murray beat Karen Khachanov in straight sets after 2 hours and 6 minutes of play, while Kei Nishikori defeated Fernando Verdasco 3-1 after losing the first set 6-0. Nishikori and Murray will meet in the quarterfinals.

Stanislas Wawrinka beat the Frenchman Gael Monfils in straight sets after 2 hours and 47 minutes.

It was a contested battle in the first two sets, but Monfils didn't have any answer in the third set, as he left the home crowd disappointed.

Marin Cilic was leading 6-3 3-0 against Kevin Anderson when Anderson decided to forfeit the match due to injury.
