(AP) Richard Gasquet overcame a match point and 39 aces from big-serving Milos Raonic to make his second Grand Slam quarterfinal with a 6-7 (4), 7-6 (4), 2-6, 7-6 (9), 7-5 victory Monday night.


No. 8 Gasquet came in with a 1-15 record in Grand Slam fourth-round matches. He'll face fourth-seeded David Ferrer in the quarterfinals.


No. 10 Raonic's 39 aces were third most in U.S. Open history. He had match point at 8-7 in the fourth-set tiebreaker, but Gasquet came to the net and Raonic couldn't get a passing shot by him. The match went 4 hours, 40 minutes on a steamy night in New York.


Gasquet's only previous fourth-round victory in a Grand Slam came at Wimbledon in 2007. He had lost 10 straight fourth-rounders since.
