Paris, France - The 18th-seeded Ernests Gulbis was a quarterfinal winner Tuesday at the 2014 French Open.

The 25-year-old Gulbis, who improved to 3-4 lifetime against Berdych, is currently riding a nine-match winning streak and already owns a pair of titles in France this season, including one in Nice just one day before the French Open commenced. Hes 13-0 on French soil for the year. "Its very special," Gulbis said in an on-court interview. "Today was the best match of the tournament. I did everything well." Gulbis has not lost to a seeded player at a Grand Slam event since the 2010 Australian Open, compiling a 5-0 mark. Former world No. 1 Novak Djokovic was also a winner on Tuesday, defeating eighth-seeded Canadian Milos Raonic 7-5, 7-6 (7-5), 6-4. Two more quarterfinals will be staged on Wednesday, when current world No. 1 Rafael Nadal takes on fifth-seeded fellow Spaniard David Ferrer and seventh- seeded Wimbledon champion Andy Murray meets 23rd-seeded French crowd favorite Gael Monfils. The 13-time Grand Slam winner Nadal captured a fourth straight French Open title and eighth overall championship here a year ago by besting Ferrer in the final. Nadal, who turned 28 on Tuesday, is 21-6 lifetime against the 32-year-old Ferrer, including 3-0 at Roland Garros. Ferrer, however, upset Nadal on clay in Monte Carlo back in April.

Fell is now awaiting a third round of chemotherapy but is determined to make a first-team return later this summer.

So being at training gives you a lift and makes everything a lot better.I think being younger I do have a bit of an advantage over some other people who do have chemotherapy so Ive found that I have coped with it fairly well but obviously there are bad days and good days. Luckily, I have more good than bad. Fell flicks a ball to the boundary while playing for Worcester last summer Hopefully it wont affect me too much in the ling run and I will be able to get back into first-team contention by June time and still have a decent season.  Also See: County Championship Div One table County Championship Div Two table Domestic fixtures/results Get Surrey tickets!
