Zverev resurfaces with Fognini and Thiem passes over Monfils

The Austrian eliminated the last Frenchman who was still alive in the picture, Gael Monfils, and will play the fourth for the fourth consecutive year against Khachanov or Del Potro.


Dominic Thiem, one of the most regular tennis players of recent times at Roland Garros, will not miss his appointment with the quarters of final, round that reaches for the fourth consecutive year in six participations. The Austrian who trains the Chilean Nicolás Massú, passed over Gael Monfils, compatriot of his girlfriend, the French player Kiki Mladenovic, who saw his boy win easily, in three sets and 1h: 48: 6-4, 6- 4 and 6-2.

Thiem only committed 14 unforced errors, half his opponent (33) despite making an offensive game (27 winning shots). So he broke the Monfils serve five times, followed by his partner, the tennis player Elina Svitolina. The effective tennis of the fourth favorite of the tournament and finalist last year (fell to Thiem) will be tested again against his next opponent: Khachanov or Del Potro.

Zverev was immense before Fognini

Alexander Zverev seems to be back. The German, who to date has not shone in the Grand Slam events, has qualified for final finals after eliminating Fabio Fognini, one of the best specialists on clay of the entire circuit ATP.

Zverev, despite losing the first set, showed a fantastic mental strength to turn the game around, which ended up closing by a score of 3-6, 6-2, 6-2 and 7-6 (5) in 2 hours and 57 minutes of play . The next pitfall of the German (seeded number 5), will be neither more nor less than the number 1 in the world, the Serbian Novak Djokovic.
