Zverev defeats Khachanov, enters maiden French Open quarters

Zverev defeats Khachanov, enters maiden French Open quarters

Novak Djokovic said he does not know if he will play at Wimbledon after tumbling out of the French Open.

It was the Serb's 200th Tour-level clay court match win.

Small strides maybe for a man tipped as Grand Slam champion but significant ones in his tennis journey.

Men's fourth round: No. 1 Rafael Nadal beat Maximilian Marterer 6-3, 6-2, 7-6 (4); No. 3 Marin Cilic beat No. 18 Fabio Fognini 6-4, 6-1, 3-6, 6-7 (4), 6-3; No. 5 Juan Martin del Potro beat No. 9 John Isner 6-4, 6-4, 6-4; No. 11 Diego Schwartzman beat No. 6 Kevin Anderson 1-6, 2-6, 7-5, 7-6 (0), 6-2. How surprising is this run?

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. "And we actually trained this year before Monte-Carlo tournament". "He's going to be pumped but I hope I'm a little bit more experienced in this one". "I am still aiming to play in the coming weeks, but I want to be 100 percent when I do return".

"That's obviously nice to hear, and it means that we play good tennis, both of us". Up to No3 in the world, he was seeded two in Paris, and touted as a future No1.

But it wasn't enough in a game where the Cavaliers just have to try to outscore the Warriors because they can't get stops. Iguodala sustained the bone bruise after bumping knees with James Harden in Game 3 of the Conference Finals.


Austrian seventh seed Dominic Thiem reached the French Open semi-finals for the third successive year with a straight-set win over an injured Alexander Zverev.

But one of these is not like the others. He was banned for 18 months and fined 40,000 euros (about $45,000), accused of losing on goal during a lower-tier Challenger event at Morocco in 2015. Cecchinato appealed and, eventually, the Italian Olympic Committee announced that the sanctions were dropped on a technicality.

He replied: "I don't know". That year was a tough time.

"I thought, "Well, okay".

He said: "I'm not concerned".

Zverev left the court at the end of the second set and returned for the third, despite the fact his movement had clearly been hampered.

And so the journey began. After 40 minutes, he had served out the set with an ace, 6-4. The "lucky loser" made the 10-hour, 650-mile drive with his 88-year-old grandmother, mother and younger brother from his home in Barcelona to Paris once he realized there was a spot in the field available because someone else withdrew. Since then, employing a smooth one-handed backhand, he has beaten players seeded No. 8 (David Goffin) and No. 10 (Pablo Carreno Busta), before adding former No. 1 Djokovic to his list. "I will do everything I can to recover, as I said after the last match".

Cecchinato certainly appeared to be appreciating every moment of his time on Court Suzanne Lenglen.

He then held serve throughout to wrap it up on his second match point when a Nishikori forehand went long.

And what a lovely, one-handed backhand that is. Mon, May 28, 2018 Who will win the French Open in 2018?
