Federer failed to get into the quarterfinals at Roland Garros for the first time in a decade.

Fourth-seeded Roger Federer was upset by 18th-ranked Ernests Gulbis in Round 4 of the French Open on Sunday in the biggest development of the weekend at Roland Garros.

Gulbis, who took advantage of a seven-minute medical time out during the fourth set against Federer, is in the quarterfinals of the tournament for the second time. He will face sixth-seeded Tomas Berdych, the winner of a Round 4 match against American John Isner.
