Ramos-Vinolas, (28) had never got beyond the second round of any major before this Roland Garros and had failed to win a match at the tournament since 2011.

But the World No 55, who is only his country's ninth best player, ensured a left-hander from Spain would be in the last-eight after the injury-enforced withdrawal of nine-time champion Rafael Nadal.
