Former champion and No. 16 seed Stan Wawrinka was the biggest star who saw his run at this year's Roland Garros end on Friday. The Swiss star was turfed out by French wildcard and world No. 239 Hugo Gaston 2-6, 6-3, 6-3, 4-6, 6-0 in a five-set battle lasting over three hours.

"Players executed well even though we pulled away. I'm satisfied with their fighting spirit. But we have to improve on some details on both ends," Beijing coach Zhang Yunsong explained.
