  • Hawk-Eye in action at Wimbledon with Rafael Nadal

Gasquet hasn't taken so much as a set off Nadal in 10 years. Once in Basel we had a very tight match.

One of her favorite players to photograph is Rafael Nadal, the 10-time French Open victor from Spain.

"Just a insane match", the third-seeded Cilic said.

Canada's Gabriela Dabrowski earned a pair of victories Saturday at the French Open.

He also says Sharapova's confidence is high ahead of her quarterfinal appearance in her first French Open since her return from a 15-month doping ban.

Nadal is looking to win his 11th French Open title at Roland Garros.

The only other occasion that Italy has had multiple representation in the last 8 at a major is 1973 Roland Garros, when Paolo Bertolucci and Adriano Panatta reached that stage.

"After 7 pm, you have half of the court in the dark and the player can be in the sun with a lovely shadow", she said.

Nadal, who lost only two points in the first five games, will next play Germany's world number 70 Maximilian Marterer, who beat Estonian lucky loser Jurgen Zopp. He has yet to drop a set at this year's tournament. "All I know is about me", he said.

Russia's Maria Sharapova celebrates winning her their third round match of the French Open tennis tournament against Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic, 6-2, 6-1, at the Roland Garros stadium in Paris, on Saturday.

He will next face 11th seed Diego Schwartzman after the diminutive Argentine underlined his clay court capability with a 7-5 6-3 6-3 victory against the unseeded Borna Coric.

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.

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. Like his coach, the former player Simone Vagnozzi said, he knows how to manage the different phases of the match.

Kasatkina has beaten Wozniacki three times this year.

Unseeded Karen Khachanov of Russian Federation has reached the French Open's round of 16 for the second consecutive year, eliminating 15th-seeded Lucas Pouille of France 6-3, 7-5, 6-3 in the resumption of a suspended match.

Dubreuil, a keen tennis player from the age of six, was hooked, and told her parents she wanted to become a tennis photographer.

Isner had 17 aces and saved the only break point he faced in a tight contest, breaking Herbert's serve just once in seven attempts.
