Djokovic, seeded 20 after struggling to find his best form since returning from an elbow injury, will take on Fernando Verdasco for a last-eight place after the Spaniard knocked out fourth seed Grigor Dimitrov. The pair were evenly matched until Verdasco edged ahead in the ensuing tie-break.

Djokovic had also squandered three set points in the second set and failed to serve out the fourth in the ninth game after being 5-2 in front.

The Italian downed the Serbian ace in 4 sets, taking the first 2, losing the 3rd and winning the 4th during the French Open quarterfinals.

19th seed Kei Nishikori triumphed in straight sets against Frenchman Gilles Simon by 6-3 6-1 6-3 in nearly half the time of two hours and one minute.

'I just came from the court.

The matches between David Goffin and Gael Monfils, and Lucas Pouille and Karen Khachanov, were suspended due to poor weather.

Her next outing will be a battle of wills against compatriot and friend Stephens, who has emerged victorious in both of their previous meetings as professionals, most recently beating Keys in the final of last year's U.S. Open.

"I won my last match against Dominic Thiem, I think it was in the final of a Future (third tier) tournament", he joked.

Last August, the company said it wanted a replacement for CEO Chris Wanstrath - one of GitHub's founders. GitHub now has over 27 million software developers contributing to over 80 million repositories of code.

"I don't know if I am going to play on grass", said the Serb. The frustration of conceding a set point was clearly evident on the face of the 12-time Grand Slam champion as he smashed his racket thrice.

Cecchinato said he was stunned by his triumph, coming just two years after his career was nearly derailed when he became embroiled in match fixing allegations. He deserved. And that's something everybody should do.On the other hand, when you walk off the court, of course, it's a hard one to swallow.' Asked if it's the most painful defeat in his career, Djokovic replied: 'No.

But what looked like being a long night for the 12-times grand slam champion ended up being a reasonably comfortable one.

His climb up the rankings and his efforts here are all the more remarkable given what happened to him in 2016, when he was embroiled in a match-fixing scandal in Italy.

With world number two Caroline Wozniacki and defending champion Jelena Ostapenko already eliminated, the bottom half of the women's draw has been throw wide open.

Buzărnescu will next face 13th seed Madison Keys of the United States, who beat Japan's Naomi Osaka 6-1, 7-6.

Alexander Zverev of Germany celebrates winning against Karen Khachanov of Russian Federation during their men's round of 16 match during the French Open tennis tournament at Roland Garros in Paris, France.

'And the one that won deserved to win the match, and that was Marco today.
