Germany's second seed Alexander Zverev will look to reach the fourth round in Paris for the first time in his career when he takes on Bosnia's Damir Dzumhur on Philippe Chatrier.

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

When leading 6-5 in the fourth set, Dzumhur served for the match but dropped his serve for the set to be decided by a tiebreaker which Zverev won 7-3 to force a fifth set.

He was fortunate to survive a break point when serving for the set at 5-3, with Khachanov's blazing forehand clipping the net cord and bouncing just millimetres behind the baseline, before drawing level at two sets apiece with an ace.

"He served for the match and I had to save lots of break points in the fourth and fifth sets". When it matters Nadal must know he won't get into trouble‚ having not dropped a set against a player who was his rival in the juniors since 2008.

Djokovic edged a tense first set against Bautista Agut, but found himself pushed even further in the second. Both times, he proved steadier and sturdier than Damir Dzumhur, a Bosnian ranked 29th and seeded 26th, and Zverev eventually prevailed 6-2, 3-6, 4-6, 7-6 (3), 7-5 in 3 hours, 54 minutes.

The last male player to win his first Grand Slam tournament before turning 25 was Juan Martin del Potro at the 2009 US Open, with current youngsters like Zverev and Denis Shapovalov, 19, yet to make their mark on the biggest stage.

"Also, in tennis you never know one week can always turn things around for you".

Earlier on Friday, U.S. Open runner-up Madison Keys saved two set points in the second set before putting away Japan's Naomi Osaka 6-1 7-6 (7) to reach the fourth round.

The White House said that they would "loudly and proudly play the National Anthem" during the event reported the Hill. As a result, the victory party planned for later today no longer has the Philadelphia Eagles on the guest list.

"I played very well‚ I'm sorry for Richard‚ he is a good friend and a good person‚" said Nadal‚ who played a few rallies with a ball boy after his match.

Zverev dug deep and saved the match point on his own serve before making it 5-5.

Her feat means the 13th-seeded American has now reached the last eight at every major.

The 23-year-old Svitolina, who trains at Roland Garros and was a quarter-finalist in 2015 and 2017, had been tipped as one of the potential winners for the second year in a row after winning the Italian Open, but she never found her groove on Court One.

Buzarnescu will face now Keys in Round 4.

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

Serving a second time for the match, the 23-year-old Keys let out a scream of "Come on!" when she hit a superb cross-court backhand victor to make it 40-15 and give herself another two chances for victory.

In the women's draw, second-seeded Caroline Wozniacki will play French wild-card entry Pauline Parmentier on Chatrier.

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