Roland Garros day 8 recap: the dudes abide

The Latest Djokovic opens with straight-set win in Paris

On court, however, Nadal is absolutely ruthless with his childhood friend.

Fifth-seeded Argentine Juan Martin del Potro booked his place in the last 16 at Roland Garros for the first time in six years, with a straightforward 7-5 6-4 6-1 victory over Spain's Albert Ramos-Vinolas.

The 27th-seeded Gasquet trailed 5-0 in the first set before winning the next three games and moving 30-0 ahead on Nadal's serve.

Marin Cilic has moved into the fourth round at a Grand Slam tournament for the 20th time, eliminating Steve Johnson of the USA 6-3, 6-2, 6-4.

Playing tennis in front of a huge crowd can be intimidating especially when you are up against one of the greatest of all time.

Isner is the last US man left in the field after eliminating the last man from France, Pierre-Hugues Herbert, 7-6 (1), 6-4, 7-6 (4).

It promises to be a hard-hitting match, with big serves and booming forehands, when Isner meets del Potro in the fourth round.

Mertens won 6-3, 6-1 against No. 24 Daria Gavrilova.

Isner served 12 aces but fell short of becoming the first American man to reach the quarterfinals since Andre Agassi in 2003.

Alexander, who is seeded No 2 at Roland Garros, won his third-round match Friday.

After the match, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was asked about the severity of the injury. Its first group game is against Uruguay on June 15.

Gasquet actually won their last encounter - but it was at the Kooyong Classic exhibition event this year.

Sloane Stephens also advanced to the fourth round, but the 10th-seeded American had a much more hard time beating Italy's Camila Giorgi 4-6, 6-1, 8-6. He will face No 18 Fabio Fognini next.

Stephens next faces Anett Kontaveit of Estonia, who won 7-6 (8), 7-6 (4) against No. 8-seeded Petra Kvitova.

Diego Schwartzman and Kevin Anderson, meanwhile, advanced to the next round after respective wins over Borna Coric and Mischa Zverev.

The No. 3-seeded Croat won the 2014 U.S. Open and has reached the final at two of the past three majors - Wimbledon a year ago and the Australian Open in January.

In another rain-affected game, Belgian David Goffin (8th seed) saved four match points to defeat Frenchman Monfils in a thriller, 6-7 (6) 6-3 4-6 7-5 6-3.

Frenchman Lucas Pouille, seeded 15, was dumped out by Russia's Karen Khachanov 6-3 7-5 6-3.

Fognini, the 2015 Australian Open champion had taken the first set 6-3 but Briton Edmund recovered well to give himself a 2-1 lead with 6-4 and 6-3 wins in the second and third sets respectively.

Their third-round match at the French Open on Saturday followed a familiar pattern: Nadal subjected Gasquet to a 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 pummeling.
