Djokovic tames Verdasco to reach last eight

Bautista Agut 'I got a crown of flowers from Rafael Nadal'

Although 34, Verdasco - who upended fourth-seed Grigor Dimitrov in straight units - stays vastly match and is aware of his means round a clay courtroom.

Thiem, a semi-finalist in Paris for the last two years, went on to register a 6-2 6-0 5-7 6-4 victory.

Rafael Nadal can pull even with a 12th French Open quarterfinal, too, by winning on Monday. But Bautista Agut was able to tough out a 6-2 6-7 1-6 6-4 6-4 win.

Japan's Kei Nishikori celebrates after victory in his men's singles third round match against France's Gilles Simon on day six of Roland Garros.

However, he was given a serious examination by Dzumhur on Friday and only just came through.

"But it was not easy to go on court recently, I don't know how I managed it".

Djokovic claimed a close opening set, clinching the first break in the match in the 10th game to move ahead.

Moscow invites N Korea's Kim to visit
Kim Jong Un's team reportedly indicated Kim Jong Un's entourage preferred to stay at an island resort near the coast. But on Friday, after meeting with North Korea's Kim Yong-chol, he announced the Sinapore-based talks were back on.


Dzumhur forced a match point at 5-4 in the decider, and had he taken it there would have been another scar for the brilliant young German to deal with.

That proved a false dawn for Zverev, though, as Khachanov eased through the third set with some powerful hitting.

He broke back, then never looked in danger in the tiebreak, bringing up set points with a flukey netcord that had him casting his eyes to the heavens.

Still fighting to find the form that took him to 12 majors, Djokovic huffed and puffed and demolished a racket in anger near the end of the second set, before regaining his composure to set up a last 16 clash with Spanish veteran Fernando Verdasco.

Keys faces unheralded Romanian Mihaela Buzarnescu on Sunday with a quarter-final place up for grabs. She sits at 33rd within the rankings after starting 2017 at 540th.

The 31-year-old former world number one struggled at times on Suzanne Lenglen court, but eventually came through the four-set battle in three hours and 48 minutes with 13th seed Bautista Agut.

Verdasco saved a break point in a 22-point second game and exerted huge pressure on Djokovic in a marathon third game but could not convert two break points of his own. It has been said of Bautista Agut, not unfairly, that he is a very natural athlete more than he is a natural tennis player, but the Spaniard has worked hard to improve his groundstrokes and serve and bring them up to the standard of his athleticism, which is impressive indeed.
