Felix finds his way as Sascha, Gael & Karen lose their way…

The top players continue to fall in Stuttgart.

Going into the quarter finals on the grass in Germany the top remaining seed is Milos Raonic who hasn’t hit a ball in some time following a complete bow out of top players as you can see below.

Felix Auger-Aliassime is through to that stage on a day of upsets with a pretty strong performance ย against Giles Simon. Gilles has been a problem player on the grass during his career but despite a slight stumble in form during the second set from the Canadian he got the job done winning 7-5 6-4.

Earlier on in the day;

Dustin Brown who we know can frustrate the best especially on a grass court was up to his old tricks. One experienced German beat the top German as Sascha Zverev fell with Dustin winning 6-4 6-7 6-3.

Gael Monfils as ever puts on a show and a fight but Denis Kudla had other ideas winning 7-5 6-7 7-6 against the Frenchman.

The big disappointment of the day for me was Karen Khachanov. Quarter finalist in Paris after a very stop/start season but got bulldozed 6-2 6-2 by Matteo Berrettini who saw off Nick Kyrgios in the previous round.
