Jennie Wade | 05 June, 2018, 03:34

World number 29 Dzumhur also served for the match in the fourth set, but Zverev clung on and claimed a 6-2, 3-6, 4-6, 7-6 (7/3), 7-5 victory.

"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. "This definitely paid off, the hours in the gym every day ..."

He will play Austrian seventh seed Dominic Thiem, who beat Japan's Kei Nishikori 6-2 6-0 5-7 6-4.

Zverev had started brightly, taking the first set 6-2 but the 26th seed rallied to get back into the match and move in front at two sets to one up.

He will face French No.15 seed Lucas Pouille or Karen Khachanov in the fourth round.

"I think psychologically that is a big, big breakthrough for Zverev today".

The 12-time Grand Slam champion took the first two sets by a single break of serve and raced through the third as 34-year-old Verdasco ended with 48 unforced errors. This was illustrated in the 10th game of the second set.

Keys, the US Open runner-up to Stephens previous year, will face Kazakhstan's Yulia Putintseva for a place in the semi-finals, after the world number 98 saw off Barbora Strycova 6-4, 6-3.

Stephens, the 10th-seeded American, also reached the last eight in Paris for the first time, beating No. 25 Anett Kontaveit of Estonia 6-2, 6-0.

Serbia´s Novak Djokovic (R) is congratulated by Spain´s Roberto Bautista Agut at the end of their men´s singles third round match, on day six of The Roland Garros 2018 French Open in Paris on June 1, 2018.

The German second seed has never been beyond the fourth round of a major but he at least equalled that record as he fought back from a set and a break down - and saved match point in the fifth - to move into the last-16 at Roland Garros for the first time.
