Zverev scores first Top-50 win at a Grand Slam

Alexander Zverev Alexander Zverev has won 32 matches this season more than any other male player

Djokovic claimed a hard-fought 6-4, 6-7 (6/8), 7-6 (7/4), 6-2 victory over a grieving Roberto Bautista Agut. The 21-year-old German edged out Russia's Karen Khachanov 4-6 7-6 (4) 2-6 6-3 6-3 and has progressed to his first Grand Slam quarter-final where he will face Austrian Dominic Thiem.

"I'm young. I might as well stay on court and entertain you guys", the 21-year-old Zverev joked with the crowd in Paris. "All the hours in the gym have paid off".

In women's play, 13th-seeded Madison Keys reached the quarterfinals for the first time at Roland Garros after beating No. 31 Mihaela Buzarnescu of Romania 6-1, 6-4 on Chatrier. "I'll get myself ready", Zverev said, smiling.

"He's an fantastic player".

In a drama-filled match, the German led 4-2 in the fifth set only for his opponent to break back and then go 5-4 up. Though the world No. 3-ranked Zverev has won eight career titles-including three ATP Masters 1000 crowns-he has yet to find success at the Grand Slam level.

Former World No 1 Djokovic will face Italian surprise package Marco Cecchinato in his 40th major quarter-final.

Unlocked Moto G6 is now part of the Amazon Prime Exclusive family
For optics, the Moto G6 Play sports a 13MP rear camera with phase detection autofocus, an f/2.0 aperture lens, and an LED flash. As for the Moto G6 , this is a mid-range device coming with a 5.7-inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio and 1080 x 2160 pixels.

It so easily could have been eight, with Dzumhur leading by a break on two occasions in the critical fourth set and serving for the match at 6-5 up, while also crafting a match point on the Zverev serve deep into the decider.

Zverev has climbed to number three in the world rankings despite never previously having gone beyond the fourth round of a Grand Slam, achieved at Wimbledon a year ago.

The Serbian has now made the second week at Roland Garros for the last nine years in a row.

Ottawa's Gabriela Dabrowski and Croatia's Mate Pavic cruised into the quarter-finals of the mixed doubles tournament with a 6-2, 6-3 win over France's Eduoard Roger-Vasselin and Andrea Sestini Hlavackova of the Czech Republic on Sunday. I do think it is massively significant to him because he is asked every single time we approach a Grand Slam, 'why can't you get to the quarter-finals?' But Dzumhur felt it was within his reach and also ran out to catch it.

The second seed, a quarter-finalist in Paris a year ago, will face Daria Kasatkina for a place in the last eight after the Russian beat Maria Sakkari 6-1, 1-6, 6-3.
