  • Novak Djokovic tennis results

Resurgent former champion Novak Djokovic reached the French Open quarter-finals for the 12th time on Sunday as he subdued feisty Spanish veteran Fernando Verdasco 6-3 6-4 6-2.

Djokovic, who came to Paris with his lowest seeding since 2006 after a hard past 12 months in which he has dealt with an elbow injury, had begun to look like his old self at Roland Garros - dropping just one set en route to the last eight.

Cecchinato, who was suspended for 18 months by the Italian tennis federation in July 2016 for fixing before later being cleared of any wrongdoing, will next face 12-time Grand Slam champion and his former practice partner Novak Djokovic.

Read on as we provide highlights and reaction from a whirlwind day of quarter-final action at Roland-Garros.

"I think that's the matchup most of the fans in Germany and Austria were hoping for when they saw the draw", he said. I don't want to get too down on myself, because it is what it is.

The Serbian tennis star, who made his return earlier this year after being sidelined for nearly six months due to an elbow injury, was involved in a tight battle against Spain's Roberto Bautista Agut on court Suzanne-Lenglen.

Djokovic may still not playing at the same level as he was at the peak of his powers, but his movement and defensive ability - two of his great hallmarks - look good enough to trouble most opponents.

"It was a great fight, nearly four hours", Djokovic said of his win.

He would not face 10-time champion Rafael Nadal - a rematch of the 2012 and 2014 finals - until the final.

As his backhand return on his fourth match point landed beyond the outstretched arm of Djokovic, the tears flowed.

Italian Cecchinato won in four sets, scrambling over the line in an epic tiebreak on his fourth match point.

The Serb broke serve at the first opportunity in the second set, Verdasco wiping out that deficit for 3-3, only to gift it straight back in a poor service game.

Dimitrov took a 3-1 lead in the tie break, but he eventually lost six out of the next seven points to fall one set behind.

Even though he trails Thiem in their head-to-head, he won their most recent meeting on clay in the Madrid final this year.

He punched the air in delight before celebrating by wearing a white beret flung on to the court and doing his now-customary arm throw to all four sides of Chatrier.

"Honestly, the (US) Open feels like it was 12 years ago at this point", said Keys, who is yet to drop a set in the tournament. I just came from the court.
