Dimitrov bows out of Open in straight sets

Zverev absolutely loves the Yorkshire accent

His opponent, however, was the stronger in an epic fourth-set tiebreak, prevailing on his fourth match point.

In a roller-coaster of a quarter-final, both men were warned for coaching, 2016 champion Djokovic required two medical timeouts while the Italian was docked a point for unsportsmanlike behaviour.

The smash to end it wasn't his only one of the match.

"I always play well at a Slam and always build my form to peak at a Slam. Maybe it's a dream, because now I'm very, very happy for this match", said Cecchinato.

Cecchinato is bidding to become the first Italian man to reach the semi-finals at a Grand Slam since Corrado Barazzutti in Paris in 1978.

"I was two breaks down on the tie-breaker and I had two or three match points and then on the fourth one I was very exhausted".

"He's an unbelievable player". I struggled from the beginning.

Djokovic was back with his former coach, Marián Vajda, who said Djokovic was not at his best at Roland Garros, but improving. It was a second-straight five-setter for the 21-year-old, who also had to battle past Dusan Lajovic in the previous round.

Verdasco, world No. 35, coped with world No. 5 Dimitrov's winners, controlling the serve points, only conceding his service game three times out of ten opportunities.

Former world number one Djokovic has dropped down the rankings to 22nd after taking time off with an elbow injury following last year's Wimbledon.

Cecchinato received a penalty point immediately after Djokovic was treated, for unsportsmanlike conduct after a lengthy argument with the umpire and supervisor for leaving the court without permission.

Zverev produced some stunning tennis in the closing stages of a dramatic fourth-round victory and will next face Dominic Thiem who reached a third successive quarter-final in Paris by seeing off Japan's Kei Nishikori 6-2, 6-0, 5-7, 6-4.

Spain's Fernando Verdasco celebrates after winning his first round match against Spain's Rafael Nadal at the Australian Open tennis tournament at Melbourne Park, Australia, January 19, 2016.

Grigor Dimitrov's clay court gremlins struck again as his French Open hopes bit the dust in predictable fashion in the third round against Spanish veteran Fernando Verdasco on Friday.

And the one that won deserved to win the match, and that was Marco today.

But he didn't seem to be, you know, under impression of the big stadium or big match. I don't want to be too negative right now.

I can not give you any answer', stated Djokovic, who dealt with neck and calf injuries during his match. I could barely move.

"But I still wanted to finish the match and give the credit to Dominic".
