French Open 2018: Novak Djokovic unsure on playing Wimbledon

Cecchinato (it's pronounced cheh-key-NAH'-toe) came through on his fourth match point, looping in a backhand return victor as Djokovic tried to surprise him with a serve-and-volley attempt.

Verdasco too failed to break his serve initially before regaining composure and winning four games in a row to take the set 6-2.

"I just could never turn it around out here. That's where I'm back", said the 2016 French Open champion.

After a tight opener was settled by a tiebreak, Verdasco steamed ahead and Dimitrov simply had no answers as he fell 6-7 (4-7) 2-6 4-6 in a match lasting just under two-and-a-half hours - something he suggested has always been the case when playing in the French capital.

Djokovic was beaten 6-3 7-6 (7-4) 1-6 7-6 (13-11) by Italy's world number 72 Marco Cecchinato in Paris on Tuesday.

Djokovic will next play another Spanish player, Fernando Verdasco. I don't know what I'm going to do.

Zinedine Zidane abruptly resigns as Real Madrid manager
The three-time Champions League-winning boss announced his decision at an impromptu press conference at 12 noon BST on Thursday. Barcelona, historically Real's greatest rivals, ran away with La Liga this season and finished 17 points clear of Zidane's side.


"At the beginning of the year when he lost a match he wasn't as sad as he was today".

The aggressive left-handed Spaniard broke twice in the second set and although he allowed Dimitrov back from 4-2 in the third, he broke again to claim his third career win against the 27-year-old. He arrived at Roland Garros with a 10-7 record this season.

Stephens beat Keys in the U.S. Open final last September, and their rematch on Thursday will be the first all-American women's semifinal at the French Open since Serena Williams defeated Jennifer Capriati in 2002. "There was another year of work where I improved and developed my game", said the 24-year-old. How hard is it to accept defeat in such good grace in the same manner as you can accept victory? Thiem is 4-2 against Zverev so far in their careers, but Zverev has won two of the last three.

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.

Few might have thought the meeting between Thiem and Zverev would be the more one-sided of the two men's quarters played on Tuesday, but the Austrian took every advantage of his opponent's rough ride to the last eight.

"Honestly, the (US) Open feels like it was 12 years ago at this point", said Keys, who is yet to drop a set in the tournament.
