Gulbis stuns Federer at French Open


Latvia’s Ernests Gulbis produced a superb display to end Roger Federer’s streak of nine consecutive quarterfinals at the French Open on Sunday.

The 18th seed, who’ll next take on Tomas Berdych for a place in the semis, won 6-7, 7-6, 6-2, 4-6, 6-3 in 3 hours and 42 minutes.

It was Federer’s earliest exit at Roland Garros since 2004, when he was outclassed in the third round by three-time champion Gustavo Kuerten.
