PARIS (AP)—Eighth-seeded Milos Raonic became the first Canadian man in history to reach the fourth round at the French Open, beating Gilles Simon of France 4-6, 6-3, 2-6, 6-2, 7-5 Friday.

Raonic has twice made the fourth round at the Australian Open and twice at the U.S. Open, but his best result at Roland Garros had been the third round.

He will next face either Marcel Granollers of Spain or Martin Klizan of Slovakia.
