Thiem crushes Zverev to book French Open semi-final spot

Where can I stream Dominic Thiem vs Alexander Zverev? . It's the best, a five-set match.

A jaded Zverev felt his left thigh early in the first set before having the area heavily strapped by the trainer during the second.

The former top-ranked Serb faces Fernando Verdasco on Court Philippe Chatrier, where he won the last of his 12 major titles in 2016.

Russia's Darya Kasatkina and Denmark's Caroline Wozniacki speak with officials during their.

"Well, I'm young, so I might as well stay on court, get some practice and entertain you guys", smiled Zverev, who is bidding to become the first German man to win the French Open since 1937. Cecchinato next faces Austrian Dominic Thiem for a place in Sunday's final. "It will be a pleasure to play against Novak".

It's also Djokovic's 12th career trip to the quarterfinals in Paris, a record for the 50-year professional era. We trained a lot on hard court, clay courts.

The world No. 3 keeps surprising his audiences, but not as much as Italy's Marco Cecchinato, who shocked eighth seed David Goffin 7-5, 4-6, 6-0, 6-3. The latter reached the quarterfinals of the French Open with a 6-2, 6-0, 5-7, 6-4 victory as a result.

Kazakh Yulia Putintseva produced a clinical display to beat 26th seeded Czech Barbora Strycova 6-4 6-3 in exactly one hour and 30 minutes.

The clay courts of Roland Garros host the second Grand Slam of the season. "That's the way I should play, how I played in the first two sets".

The Austrian blew the Monte Carlo finalist away in the first two sets, lost the third, but came through 6-2 6-0 5-7 6-4 to land in a third consecutive Roland Garros quarterfinal.

Miss America is rebranding for the modern era that's less tolerant of outright objectification of women. According to Carlson, the gown competition will be revamped to allow women to wear whatever they want.

Both players held their serves in the opening six games, before Thiem finished the first break in the seventh to go ahead 4-3.

"I hope we have many more matches at the Grand Slams, but when we are 100 per cent".

"It's something very special to serve for the French Open quarters", the Austrian player said after clinching his game-winning point.

Striking the ball cleanly and powerfully in ideal conditions on Court Philippe Chatrier, the big-serving Keys bagged the opener in the blink of an eye against an overpowered opponent offering little resistance.

Second seed Zverev had fought through three consecutive five-setters and spent nearly two and a half hours longer on court than Thiem.

Second seed Alexander Zverev said Sunday he hopes a first-ever Grand Slam quarter-final at the French Open doesn't signal the end of his Roland Garros challenge.

Zverev also arrived at Roland Garros previous year with high expectations after winning the Italian Open, only to slump to a first-round defeat by Fernando Verdasco, before further early exits at the US Open and the Australian Open in January.

Somehow, Cecchinato won the one that mattered most, the last.

"I'm very happy about being in the quarter-finals here with going the hard way, going the long distance every single time and, you know, showing myself, showing everybody that I can play for as long as I need to". "All the hours in the gym have paid off". Zverev has made it through to the quarter-finals of a major for the first time in his career although it has certainly not been plain sailing.
