Nishikori had two match points in the fourth set, but then had to rally from 5-3 down in the fifth to advance. He improved to 23-6 in fifth sets. Clive Brunskill/Getty Images Europe/Getty Images

Also making history was 17-year-old Amanda Anisimova. When she beat Aliona Bolsova, she became the youngest female quarterfinalist in Paris since Martina Hingis in 1998. Julian Finney/Getty Images Europe/Getty Images
Next up Anisimova will try to upset defending champion Simona Halep, who like Anisimova, cruised. Halep only needed 45 minutes to better 18-year-old Iga Swiatek. Julian Finney/Getty Images Europe/Getty Images
Ashleigh Barty reached a second straight grand slam quarterfinal by downing Sofia Kenin -- who had eliminated Serena Williams. Julian Finney/Getty Images Europe/Getty Images
Barty meets Madison Keys in the quarterfinals. Keys beat Katerina Siniakova, who had defeated world No. 1 Naomi Osaka on Saturday. Clive Mason/Getty Images Europe/Getty Images
