Alexander Zverev celebrates his five-set victory against Karen Khachanov

"I have known of him for many years, " Djokovic said after his victory over Verdasco. He scored a third consecutive five set victory by defeating Karen Khachanov 4-6 7-6 2-6 6-3 6-3.

Next up: No. 7 seed Dominic Thiem of Austria, who made it to his third consecutive French Open semifinal by beating No. 2 Alexander Zverev of Germany 6-4, 6-2, 6-1.

But the German gathered himself, taking a tie break as the momentum swung back in his favour.That proved a false dawn for Zverev, though, as Khachanov eased through the third set with some powerful hitting.But Zverev, as he did in his wins over Dusan Lajovic and Damir Dzumhur, forced a decider, sealing the set with an ace after saving two break points. The Austrian will has a consistent performer in Paris as he has reached the semi-final in the last two seasons as well.

She will meet Sloane Stephens, who defeated Daria Kasatkina 6-3, 6-1.

Cecchinato, who was suspended for match-fixing two years ago, before his ban was overturned on appeal, arrived in Paris having not won a single Grand Slam match.

At world number 72, Cecchinato becomes the lowest-ranked man to reach the last eight in Paris since Latvian Ernests Gulbis (ranked 80) in 2008.

Now he faces 12-time major champion Novak Djokovic in the last eight.

"There is no point where I would say that it's not working". "It will be a pleasure to play against Novak".

Kazakh Yulia Putintseva produced a clinical display to beat 26th seeded Czech Barbora Strycova 6-4 6-3 in exactly one hour and 30 minutes. My first quarter. I lost to a great player.

The 31-year-old Scot has returned to the practice courts but said on Tuesday he would not be playing the Rosmalen grasscourt tournament, near Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands, that starts on June 11.




His win over No. 19 seed Nishikori was surprisingly one-sided at times, particularly as he collected a bagel win in the second set, where the Japanese star's serve was nearly completely nullified by the advancing athlete.

"Coming on to play on back-to-back days in a Grand Slam, I was really pleased to get out there and play some good tennis", American Stephens said.

Too often, however, Thiem was able to place shots just out of Nishikori's reach.

"I hope we have many more matches at the Grand Slams, but when we are 100 per cent".

Rafael Nadal can pull even with a 12th French Open quarterfinal by winning on Monday.

Zverev and Thiem have always been identified as the two younger players most likely to threaten Rafael Nadal's dominance on clay.

But the German has been taken to five sets in each of his previous three encounters in the French capital and trails Thiem 4-2 in their head-to-head.

"In the end it was very close and I was a bit nervous in the end as it is always hard to serve to reach the quarterfinals of the French Open", said Thiem, a semifinalist here in 2016 and 2017.

"I'm young. I might as well stay on court and entertain you guys", the 21-year-old Zverev joked with the crowd. "Everything comes together slowly and I'm happy to be here". "This definitely paid off, the hours in the gym every day ..."
