05/27 09:10 CDT French Open updates | Sasnovich ousts another GS champion French Open updates | Sasnovich ousts another GS champion PARIS (AP) --- The Latest on the French Open tennis tournament (all times local): 3:45 p.m. Aliaksandra Sasnovich eliminated a Grand Slam champion for the second straight match to reach the fourth round at the French Open. The 47th-ranked Belarusian beat three-time major champion Angelique Kerber 6-4, 7-6 (5) at Court Simonne Mathieu. Sasnovich had defeated reigning U.S. Open champion Emma Raducanu in the second round. She next faces Italian player Martina Trevisan, whose best result at a Grand Slam was the quarterfinals at Roland Garros two years ago. ___ 3:20 p.m. Coco Gauff reached the fourth round at the French Open by beating Kaia Kanepi. The 18-year-old Gauff, the youngest remaining woman in the draw, defeated the 36-year-old Kanepi, the oldest remaining woman, 6-3, 6-4. The young American is trying to improve on her quarterfinal run at Roland Garros a year ago. Gauff had six aces --- and five double-faults --- while her Estonian opponent made 29 unforced errors. The teenager has not dropped a set in her first three matches. Gauff next faces No. 31 Elise Mertens. ___ 3 p.m. U.S. Open runner-up Leylah Fernandez has reached the fourth round at the French Open for the first time. The 19-year-old Canadian beat Olympic gold medalist Belinda Bencic 7-5, 3-6, 7-5 at Court Philippe Chatrier. The 17th-seeded Fernandez broke Bencic in the 11th game of the deciding set and served out the match. She had saved two set points in the opener. Fernandez next faces 20-year-old Amanda Anisimova, who reached the Roland Garros semifinals in 2019. The best result by a Canadian woman at the French Open was Eugenie Bouchard making the semifinals in 2014. ___ 1:35 p.m. Amanda Anisimova moved into the fourth round of the French Open when Karolina Muchova stopped playing after hurting her right ankle. The 27th-seeded Anisimova, an American who reached the Roland Garros semifinals at the age of 17 in 2019, was leading 6-7 (7), 6-2, 3-0 when Muchova walked to the net to concede the match. Muchova twisted her right foot while serving at 2-all in the second set. She went to the sideline during that game to get checked on by a doctor and a trainer, who taped up the ankle. When play resumed after the medical timeout, Muchova dropped seven games in a row before retiring from the match. Anisimova eliminated four-time Grand Slam champion Naomi Osaka in the first round. ___ 1:30 p.m. Diego Schwartzman advanced to the fourth round of the French Open and a potential showdown with defending champion Novak Djokovic. The 2020 Roland Garros semifinalist beat Grigor Dimitrov 6-3, 6-1, 6-2 at Court Simonne Mathieu. The 18th-seeded Bulgarian made 59 unforced errors. The 15th-seeded Schwartzman will next face either Djokovic or Aljaz Bedene. Schwartzman is 0-6 against Djokovic. ___ 11 a.m. The big favorites in the men's draw have third-round matches on Day 6 at the French Open. Novak Djokovic continues his title defense at Court Philippe Chatrier against Aljaz Bedene of Slovenia. Fifth-seeded Rafael Nadal faces Botic van de Zandschulp. Nadal is 8-0 against the Dutchman. In the nightcap on center court, sixth-seeded Carlos Alcaraz plays Sebastian Korda in what could be a tricky matchup for the 19-year-old Spaniard. Alcaraz's only loss in 19 matches on clay this season was to Korda. The 21-year-old American beat Alcaraz last month in Monte Carlo. In the women's draw, the youngest player remaining is 18-year-old Coco Gauff and she'll face the oldest in 36-year-old Kaia Kanepi. U.S. Open runner-up Leylah Fernandez plays Olympic gold medalist Belinda Bencic of Switzerland. ___ More AP Tennis: https://apnews.com/hub/tennis and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports
