Alexander Zverev comes back to reach French Open 4th round

Alexander Zverev

Both players were bidding to reach the last-eight stage at a major for the first time in their careers but it was Zverev, who recorded a 4-6 7-6 (7-4) 2-6 6-3 6-3 win in three hours and 29 minutes. Zverev saved a match point before finally prevailing in a five-set epic, 6-2 3-6 4-6 7-6 (7-3) 7-5.

"You try to win each point, you try to win each game".

Jonathan's opening question was met with a bemused look from the world number three, who is fluent in English, before he replied 'where you from, buddy?' Keys held steady, though, and was able to convert her second match point when Osaka double-faulted.

It was a brief reprieve as Khachanov's aggressive volleying tactics earned him a third set-point chance and this time the Russian took it to clinch the opener.

Zverev, 21, who is seen as the main threat to Rafael Nadal´s expected coronation as champion for an 11th time, endured a nightmare outing on Court Philippe Chatrier that lasted nearly four hours.

Karen Khachanov is coming off a straight sets win over Lucas Pouille that took 30 games to decide.

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

Manchester City's Pep Guardiola would welcome Maurizio Sarri to Premier League
The 59-year-old held talks with Napoli over an extension, however, De Laurentiis turned to Ancelotti amid Sarri's growing links with Chelsea .

Dzumhur finished with 51 winners - the same as Zverev - but 68 unforced errors and was broken nine times.

"It was the first time I have won on this court and I hope there are many more to come".

"He served for the match and I had to save lots of break points in the fourth and fifth sets".

For Zverev it was a 33rd win of the season, the best figures on the tour which has also yielded clay court titles in Munich and Madrid as well as a runners-up spot to Nadal in Rome.

A tense fourth set unfolded, with Dzumhur- who at one stage collided with a ball boy - breaking for a 3-2 lead.

Fortunately, the lad was all right, smiling as he left the court. Why not? Just because you said it so nicely, I'm going to believe that now'.

And it wasn't any better for one of the ball boys.
