Alexander Zverev comes back to reach French Open 4th round

Alexander Zverev

Russian Daria Kasatkina recovered from a mid-match blip to reach the last-16, defeating Greece's Maria Sakkari 6-1 1-6 6-3 in the third round.

The match will resume Monday.

Bosnia's Dzumhur, seeded 26th, had a match point on Zverev's serve at 5-4 in the final set.

"None", Zverev said. "Mainly, I was thinking (about) what I was going to have for lunch".

Djokovic eased past Spanish veteran Verdasco 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 and will play in the last eight at Roland Garros for a record 12th time.

Zverev, so relaxed early on that he laughed when he completely missed a service return, lost his air of confidence, swapping it for an increasingly grim look of determination.

All ended well at the French Open.

Venus Williams and Serena Williams advanced to the third round of the French Open in doubles.

In the women's draw yesterday, Elina Svitolina's tournament breakthrough was again put on hold, when the Ukrainian fourth seed was knocked out 6-3, 7-5 in the third round by Romania's Mihaela Buzarnescu.

Former world number one Djokovic will face Italian surprise package Marco Cecchinato in his 40th major quarter-final.

Stephens faced no break points.

Zverev saved a match point in a 6-2, 3-6, 4-6, 7-6 (3), 7-5 win over Damir Dzumhur on Friday.

The match was made even more dramatic when Bosnian-born Dzumhur collided with a ball boy who lay motionless on the ground after the pair both went after the same high ball.

Second seed Zverev, who beat Thiem at the Madrid Masters last month, has spent 11 hours 56 minutes on court and had to rally back from two sets to one down in his last three matches.

Thiem bit his fingers after squandering his first match point.

The German then saved a match point on his serve to make it 5-5.

Japan's Kei Nishikori made short work of home hope Gilles Simon as he cruised into the fourth round for the fifth time. He'll play the second-seeded Alexander Zverev next.

The second-seeded German reached the fourth round of the French Open for the first time by beating Damir Dzumhur 6-2, 3-6, 4-6, 7-6 (3), 7-5.

Verdasco, meanwhile, got to the fourth round at Roland Garros for the seventh time.

"We know each other pretty well", the 21-year-old Zverev said. For the first time in his career he won a contest on the main Philippe Chatrier Court.

Thiem has reached the semifinals at Roland Garros the past two years.

"What can I say?" "Hopefully big things can happen here".

They were playing their match later Sunday on Court Suzanne Lenglen.

The match-up between the two will be widely seen as a virtual semi-final, with the victor tipped to take on 10-times champion Nadal in next Sunday's final.

Wozniacki picked up her second bagel of the tournament so far.

Keys next faces either No. 26 Barbora Strycova or Yulia Putintseva.

"Then once you get to the second week, every match obviously has more nerves, and there's more on the line".
