French Open 2018: Alexander Zverev beats Karen Khachanov in five sets

Alexander Zverev is the only one who take over from the Big Four

He will face either Lucas Pouille or Karen Khachanov in the last-16 as he looks to reach the quarter-final of a Slam for the first time.

Clearly this was incidental contact, but Dzumhur ended up with the loss to the No. 2 seeded Zverev in five sets.

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

But Zverev fought back from 2-1 down to win the final two sets and become the youngest quarter-finalist in Paris since a 20-year-old Juan Martin del Potro in 2009.

Despite calling on a trainer to treat blisters on his left toes before the start of the fifth set, the world number three zipped around easily to break in the opening game of the decider and finished off the 38th-ranked Russian after three-and-a-half hours of pulsating action.

Zverev roared in celebration at making a breakthrough halfway through the second but, serving to draw level in the match, wasted three set points before eventually winning it on a tie-break.

Having needed five sets to see off Serbia's Dusan Lajovic in the second round, the German endured another nightmare outing before claiming victory after nearly four hours on Court Philippe Chatrier.

Despite sacking him, Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis refuses to release Sarri from his deal. Don't worry, with Carlo we'll do what we have to do.

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

It is the seventh time the world No.35 has reached the French Open fourth round, but it is the only grand slam tournament where he is yet to make the last eight. I don't understand a word you're saying.

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.

Dzumhur had just held serve at the start of the fourth set when he and the ball boy ran into each other as they were both looking skyward to catch a ball.

Fortunately, the lad was all right, smiling as he left the court.

"But that's tennis. And that's why he's one of the best players today". Why not? Just because you said it so nicely, I'm going to believe that now'.
