Alexander Zverev, the second seed, needed five sets and nearly four hours to overcome Damir Dzumhur 6-2, 3-6, 4-6, 7-6 (3), 7-5 on Friday.

The 21-year-old German overcame a lack of consistency during the game and saved a match point to beat the 29th seed 6-2, 3-6, 4-6, 7-6 (3), 7-5. Eighth-seeded David Goffin of Belgium leads Frenchman and No. 32 seed Gael Monfils, 6-7 (6), 6-3, 3-2, while 15th-seeded Lucas Pouille of France dropped the first two sets to Russian Karen Khachanov and trails 3-6, 5-7, 1-1.

Zverev's class and persistence shone through in the final set as he took an early break and converted match point on Khachanov's serve.

Second-seeded Zverev came from two sets to one down to fight back past Dzumhur in five sets for his first victory over a top-50 opponent at a major tournament in eight attempts.

Zverev roared in celebration at making a breakthrough halfway through the second but, serving to draw level in the match, wasted three set points before eventually winning it on a tie-break.

"I would think that if both players were fresh I would say that Zverev has the upper hand because a best-of-five would suit him, giving him time to figure things out", Wilander, Eurosport's lead analyst in Paris, told Reuters on Monday. He'll be hoping to carry that momentum through into the second week of Roland Garros, although he faces some tough hurdles ahead.

It is the first time since the 2006 Australian Open that someone other than Nadal, Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray has been among the top two seeded players at a major.

"The coach is the person that gives you confidence in the moments where you don't have it yourself", Zverev said.

It wasn't easy but Alexander Zverev is into the fourth round of Roland Garros.

Kei Nishikori advanced to the fourth round by beating Gilles Simon 6-3, 6-1, 6-3.

But the 10th seed will have to be wary of the risky Kasatkina, who saw off Caroline Wozniacki in straight sets to notch her third consecutive win over the Australian Open victor.

Wozniacki quickly regained control and wrapped it up on the second match point when the Frenchwoman sent a forehand long - her 27th unforced error of the match.

We saw a magnificent fightback from Diego Schwartzman yesterday, with the Argentine fighting back from 1-6 2-6 down (and saving match points) to beat Kevin Anderson and move into the quarter-finals.
