Gustavo Kuerten eased past Feliciano Lopez and into the men's quarter-finals in Paris on Monday. Gustavo Kuerten remained on course for an unlikely fourth French Open title with a 6-3 7-5 6-4 win in the fourth round.
 

'Guga' started superbly, and raced to the opening set 6-3 in exactly half an hour. The Brazilian three-times champion, immensely popular with the Parisian public, looked superb and is clearly full of confidence after defeating world number one Roger Federer on Saturday.

He edged a tight second set 7-5 and never looked back after that as his young Spanish opponent began to miss the lines with alarming regularity. Lopez hit 39 unforced errors in the match, and while he is certainly young enough to come again, can have no complaints after his straight-sets defeat here.

Kuerten will face Marat Safin or David Nalbandian for a place in the semi-finals. His only concern will be the hip injury which has blighted his career since he collected his third French Open title in 2001. The 27-year-old twice received treatment for the problem against Lopez, and has already admitted that he may struggle if he does not win his matches in straight sets.

He has a great chance but he is carrying a slight injury. As long as it holds up he could do it.
