  • Rafael Nadal French Open Alexander Zverev

That left the Austrian facing a hard challenge in Nishikori, but Thiem made fairly light work of it to again win in four sets, 6-2 6-0 5-7 6-4.

In a tight first set of a match played in overcast, heavy conditions, Thiem converted the only break point off a backhand victor in the seventh game before securing the opener with an ace.

Luckily for Zverev, he was able to edge the tie-break and level the scores at a set apiece, but Khachanov hit back strongly in the third set, taking it easily after successive breaks midway through to leave his opponent in trouble. Khachanov punished him and broke for 5-5.

He said: "I'm not concerned".

The Serb, three-times a Wimbledon champion, appeared distraught after his quarter-final defeat by unseeded Marco Cecchinato in which he was treated for neck pain. Match by match, I was playing better and better, and that shows that I increased [my] level. I couldn't serve. I couldn't really do anything.

Zverev and Thiem will both look to dominate this match with powerful groundstrokes from the back of the court.

Zverev was coming off a trio of wins that went five sets and, while still just 21, could not will his body to another comeback. He serve-and-volleyed on break point at 1-5, too, but in the end, he could not hold off the inevitable, and a final backhand punch from Thiem earned set and match, 6-1. "I played good tennis. But at the end I'm happy with how it went today".

"I'm young, so I might as well stay on court and practise a little bit", Zverev said courtside. "He was hitting very deep".

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

Zverev is seeded No 2 in Paris with Thiem at No 7 and has a familiar feel. He's going to be pumped.

Djokovic, Cecchinato said, "seemed unsure of himself at the beginning".

"I am clearly a tennis fan similar to everybody else, so I believe I am simply as excited to see that match", mentioned Keys. "So I think we can make it legendary and that would be very nice", Thiem, 24, told reporters after his huge forehand helped him to destroy Japan's Nishikori.

Novak Djokovic equaled Roger Federer's mark of reaching nine consecutive quarterfinals at Roland Garros by beating No. 30 seed Fernando Verdasco 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 on Sunday. Then, I think this year I'm physically and mentally fresher than I have been the last two years.

For the third consecutive round, Zverev rallied from a 2-1 deficit in sets and this time it came against a friend from his junior days, Karen Khachanov. "So that's all positives for now".

Djokovic will be the big favorite on Tuesday. Prior to the event, my data had Zverev as marginally the better player on clay in the last 12 months, enough to make him a [1.80] - [1.90] priced favourite. "I will do everything I can to recover, as I said after the last match". "He trained a lot where I reside, where I live". And we actually trained this year before the Monte Carlo tournament.
