  • Zverev absolutely loves the Yorkshire accent

After losing a point during the tiebreaker in the second set, Djokovic angrily whacked his racket into the clay.

Verdasco, who beat fourth seed Grigor Dimitrov in straight sets in the previous round, needed treatment for blisters as Djokovic was made to wait before serving out for two-love lead.

"I think that's going to be the number one priority for me now to kind of step out from the tennis for a little bit, try to watch some matches and try to progress and get better".

The unheralded Italian upset Belgian seventh seed David Goffin 7-5 4-6 6-0 6-3 to qualify for his first grand slam quarter-final.

"I just could never turn it around out here".

"It was an fantastic, high level match", said Zverev.

Fourth seed Dimitrov was beaten 7-6 (7-4) 6-2 6-4 by Fernando Verdasco on Court 1 at Roland Garros, two days after being pushed to five sets by world number 57 Jared Donaldson.

In the women's quarterfinals, No. 10 Sloane Stephens beat No. 14 Daria Kasatkina of Russian Federation 6-3, 6-1, and No. 13 Madison Keys eliminated unseeded Yulia Putintseva of Kazakhstan 7-6 (5), 6-4.

"I don't know. I don't know what I'm going to do". Stephens, last season's US Open champ, is in the midst of a rebound after getting bounced in the first round of this year's Australian Open.

The fixing scandal focused on a second-tier Challenger match he lost to Kamil Majchrzak in Morocco in 2015, with his country's federation banning him and fellow Italians Riccardo Accardi and Antonio Campo.

Stephens beat Keys in the U.S. Open final last September, and their rematch on Thursday will be the first all-American women's semifinal at the French Open since Serena Williams defeated Jennifer Capriati in 2002. "It's fantastic", said the 25-year-old Cecchinato.

His hunger for the fight was clear for all to see too against Cecchinato in a thrilling tiebreak - the Serb roaring to the crowd, who chanted "Djoko Djoko" at crucial moments. He then held three set points in the tiebreaker but couldn't convert any. He won the tie with a comprehensive score-line of 7-6 (7-4), 6-2, 6-4.

Will Halep make it third time lucky?

Few might have thought the meeting between Thiem and Zverev would be the more one-sided of the two men's quarters played on Tuesday, but the Austrian took every advantage of his opponent's rough ride to the last eight.

"First week, my goal is to get to the second week", said Keys.

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