French Open: Djovokic Advances; Zverev Survives

French Open: Djovokic Advances; Zverev Survives

Novak Djokovic matched Roger Federer's mark of reaching nine consecutive quarter-finals at Roland Garros by beating No. 30 seed Fernando Verdasco 6-3, 6-4, 6-2.

But Zverev edged a tense fourth set in which he was issued a code violation for being coached from the stands by his father Alexander Sr.

After squandering two break-point chances, Zverev made amends in the Russian's following service game in the second set to take command but Khachanov hit back on his fifth break point when the German served for the second set to secure the break back.

The straightforward victory for 2016 French Open champion Djokovic was his 200th career tour-level win on clay. Having never played a five-set match at Roland Garros until this year, Zverev has now won two back-to-back.

Zverev sank to his knees in celebration.

"I've been down 2-1 every single time but I'm unbelievably happy to be into the quarter-finals".

As in the previous two rounds, Zverev was struggling for consistency.

Zverev was serving for the set at 5-4, he soon trailed 0-40.

He enjoyed the ideal start on Court Suzanne Lenglen with a break of serve, but Khachanov hit back immediately and Zverev tossed his racquet in frustration at being asked to replay the point by a line judge after staving off two set points. An ace gave him another set point but he missed that one, too, putting a low volley into the net.

Zverev has youth on his side, but he has been spending a long time on court and his body is showing it.

He broke immediately for a 1-0 lead and jumped around on court, waving his arms to get the crowd going.

Djokovic eased past Spanish veteran Verdasco 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 and will play in the last eight at Roland Garros for a record 12th time.

Yulia Putintseva strode to a 6-4, 6-3 victory over 26th seed Barbora Strycova, and she'll face Keys in the quarters.

Later on Lenglen, Australian Open champion Caroline Wozniacki - seeded second - had a tough-looking fourth-round match against Daria Kasatkina.

In women's singles, 13th-seeded Madison Keys and fellow American Sloane Stephens reached the quarter-finals for the first time at Roland Garros.
