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.
