  • Alexander Zverev French Open Federer

He next awaits the victor of the match between 15th seed Lucas Pouille of France and Russia's Karen Khachanov.

The legendary siblings beat Sara Errani and Kirsten Flipkens 6-4 6-2 in front of a packed crowd on Court 7.

But the young star played an imperfect game against Dzumhur, hitting 73 unforced errors, dropping his serve eight times and serving seven double faults.

Thiem made the semifinals a year ago and in 2016.

Rafael Nadal can pull even with a 12th French Open quarterfinal, too, by winning on Monday. They won their 14th Grand Slam title in doubles at the All England Club.

Novak Djokovic smashed his racquet into the dust with three, quick destructive swipes as he lost the second set of his match against Roberto Bautista Agut. After losing a point during the second-set tiebreaker, the 20th-seeded Djokovic angrily whacked his racket into the clay.

Bautista Agut was playing in Paris despite the death of his mother last week.

Fourth seed Grigor Dimitrov was far from his best in a 7-6 (4) 6-2 6-4 defeat by claycourt specialist Fernando Verdasco in the third round.

Despite being the second seed at Roland Garros, the German is yet to make it to the fifth round of a glam slam tournament.

He was also 0-7 against top 50 players at majors before beating the 29th-ranked Dzumhur.

But the 31st-seeded Buzarnescu, a Romanian with a PhD in sports science, continued the surge that has seen her rise almost 350 spots in the rankings over the past year.

Japan's Kei Nishikori made short work of home hope Gilles Simon as he cruised into the fourth round for the fifth time.

The 19th-seeded Nishikori broke Simon's serve five times and saved all six break points on his own serve.

But he has never reached a Grand Slam quarter-final, although the longer best-of-five format has worked twice in his favour now at Roland Garros.

Alexander Zverev saved a match point as he conjured up another fightback to win an epic clash with Damir Dzumhur and reach the fourth round of the French Open for the first time on Friday.

Alexander Zverev, the second seed, needed five sets and nearly four hours to overcome Damir Dzumhur 6-2, 3-6, 4-6, 7-6 (3), 7-5 on Friday.

Trump Weighs Tariffs On Imported Cars
The official said a range of issues remain to be resolved but the USA looks forward to continuing the negotiations with Canada . Canada had earlier announced retaliatory tariffs on a range of USA imports, including maple syrup and ballpoint pens.

"All I could do was keep fighting", said Zverev who had also needed five sets to beat Serbia's Dusan Lajovic in the second round. For a few anxious moments, the boy seemed hurt, lying on the red dirt. But he picked himself up with Dzumhur's help, and play resumed.

Buzarnescu, a 30-year-old Romanian who had never won a Grand Slam match before this week, downed fourth seed Elina Svitolina with a shock 6-3, 7-5 victory.

2007 - The last time there were no men from France in the fourth round at Roland Garros. Osaka, seeded 21, is bidding to reach the fourth round in Paris for the first time to match her run to the last-16 in Australia in January.

Djokovic leads their head to head 6-1, including three wins on clay.

"You try to win each point, you try to win each game".

"You're trying to win that exact point to be able to continue the match".

Dzumhur was battling Alexander Zverev in the fourth set of his round of 32 loss on Court Philippe-Chartrier in Paris.
