Stefanos Tsitsipas continues to show great consistency at the Grand Slams as he entered a third consecutive major quarter-final with
6-3, 6-2, 7-5 result against Spanish No.12 seed Pablo Carreno Busta.
The Greek fifth seed, who made the semi-finals at last February’s Australian Open and fell in five sets to Novak Djokovic in the Roland-Garros semi-finals last October, next takes on second-seeded Daniil Medvedev.
Medvedev went from owning a 0-4 record on Parisian clay prior to this fortnight, to now going 4-0 this past week to punch his ticket to the last-eight stage for the first time at Roland-Garros.
The Australian Open runner-up eased past Chilean No.22 seed Cristian Garin 6-2, 6-1, 7-5 and enters his clash with Tsitsipas having dropped just one set through four matches.
The Roland-Garros tournament organisers have learned that Roger Federer has withdrawn from the fourth round of the tournament.
“After discussions with my team, I’ve decided I will need to pull out of the French Open today. After two knee surgeries and over a year of rehabilitation it’s important that I listen to my body and make sure I don’t push myself too quickly on my road to recovery. I am thrilled to have gotten 3 matches under my belt. There is no greater feeling than being back on court”, said Federer.
Ninth-seeded Italian Matteo Berrettini receives a walkover into the quarter-finals, where he awaits either world No.1 Novak Djokovic or 19-year-old Lorenzo Musetti.
