Paris: Milos Raonic became just the fourth Canadian man in history to reach a Grand Slam quarter-final on Sunday when he defeated Spain`s Marcel Granollers 6-3, 6-3, 6-3 in the French Open fourth round.

Eighth-seeded Raonic, 23, goes on to face either world number two Novak Djokovic or French 13th seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga for a place in the semi-finals.

Sunday proved a day of double delight for Canada after Eugenie Bouchard earlier reached the quarter-finals of the women`s event.
