  • Rafael Nadal can move ahead of Roger Federer in the ATP money list

Gasquet's miserable head-to-head record against his childhood friend has shown no signs of improving in recent years - the world number 32 has not taken a set off the Spaniard since 2008. "We were ready. We prepared a long time for this match".

Spain's Rafael Nadal, right, hugs France's Richard Gasquet after their third round match of the French Open tennis tournament at the Roland Garros stadium, Saturday, June 2, 2018 in Paris. On April 17, Cecchinato had won just three ATP matches in his whole career.

The French Open is free to watch on TV for United Kingdom viewers. "He's a nice guy and, yeah, that's what I can say".

"When he plays on his backhand, he has an intensity which is monstrous", Gasquet said after the latest loss.

He beat Frenchman Richard Gasquet in straight sets (6-3, 6-2, 6-2) to claim his place in the Roland Garros Round-of-sixteen.

Alexander, who is seeded No 2 at Roland Garros, won his third-round match Friday.

His 6-3 6-2 6-2 win over the two-time Wimbledon semi-finalist in two hours saw him book a meeting with Germany's Maximilian Marterer, who eased beyond Estonia's Jurgen Zopp. Of the 16 men left, only he and Schwartzman have yet to drop a set.

Serena Williams faces her toughest test yet in her return to Grand Slam tennis after giving birth, against 11th-seeded Julia Goerges. Zverev reached his maiden Grand Slam quarter-final enduring a slightly easier streak of comeback wins that confirmed he's not suffering anymore when the match goes to the distance.

He beat Pierre-Hugues Herbert, 7-6 (1), 6-4, 7-6 (4), ending fading French hopes as the evening sun dimmed on Court No. 18.

On tap Sunday, the fourth round begins with Novak Djokovic and Fernando Verdasco colliding for a 15th time.

"He is very photogenic, for me he is the one to photograph", she said.

The ten-time French Open champion ruthlessly took a 4-0 lead in the first set without dropping a single point. "Also we are good outside the court, with his parents, they know me also and I know them well". She will next play 10th-seeded Sloane Stephens.

Del Potro had eight aces and broke his Spanish opponent's serve six times on Court Philippe Chatrier, taking just 29 minutes to win the third set.

Their third-round match at the French Open on Saturday followed a familiar pattern: Nadal subjected Gasquet to a 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 pummeling.

Later, 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams will face five-time major victor Maria Sharapova on the same court.
