Croatia’s number one tennis player Marin Čilić has advanced through to the quarter-final of the French Open at Roland Garros in Paris on Monday.

Čilić, who is the tournament’s 7th seed, was leading Kevin Anderson 6-3, 3-0 when the South African retired with a muscle injury.

After Čilić had claimed a break in the second set Anderson decided that he could not carry on and handed the Croatian the win.

Čilić is aiming to win his second Grand Slam of his career in Paris, after winning the US Open and will face the winner of the Stan Wawrinka- Gael Monfils match up.

Meanwhile, in the women’s draw, qualifier Petra Martić’s run came to an end today when she fell to the 5th seed Elina Svitolina in a close encounter 6-3, 3-6, 7-5. Martić was up 5-2 in the deciding set but could not close out the match.
