The referee made a decision to suspend the match as the condition was not fit to play.

However, Chinese players Liang Chen and Wang Qiang lost to Chan Hao-Ching of Chinese Taipei and Barbora Krejcikova of the Czech Republic, 6-3, 5-7, 6-3.

Wozniacki immediately broke back and also took the eighth game to leave her serving for the match.

Earlier on Monday, Andy Murray racked up his 650th career win to reach the French Open quarter-finals on Monday before paying an unscripted, emotional tribute to the victims of the London and Manchester terror attacks.

Cepede Royg had a chance to pull off the upset, holding a break point while ahead 4-3 in the third set. "Paris has had its problems too in recent years", said Murray.

"I couldn't do anything first set but I tried to play a little more heavy and a little more aggressive sometimes, and start working a little bit better", Nishikori said.

Meanwhile, in the women's singles, Romania's third-seeded Simona Halep advanced to the fourth round, where she will compete with Spanish Carla Suarez for a place in the quarter-finals.

The seventh-seeded Croat dropped his opening service game, and then won eight straight games to take complete control against Lopez.

In the only match involving two Indians pitted across the net, seventh seeds Rohan Bopanna and Gabriela Dabrowski of Canada defeated second seeds Sania Mirza and Ivan Dodig of Croatia 6-3, 6-4 to enter the mixed doubles semi-finals.

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

"Stan was better than I was today", a dejected Monfils reflected.

Pliskova now faces No. 28 Caroline Garcia of France for a semifinal berth.

Cornet has never been further than that in Grand Slam tournaments.

Britain's Andy Murray returns the ball to Argentina's Juan Martin del Potro during their third round match of the French Open tennis tournament at the Roland Garros stadium, Saturday, June 3, 2017 in Paris.

Murray needed two hours and 53 minutes to win 7-6 (8), 7-5, 6-0 over the Argentine del Potro.

Following them onto Court Philippe Chatrier will be No. 15 Gael Monfils and No. 24 Richard Gasquet.

It looked like being a challenging day at the office for Wawrinka until Fognini blew his chance to win the opening set.

Pliskova faces Germany's Carina Witthoeft and Halep plays No. 26 Daria Kasatkina of Russian Federation.
