Nishikori won just 14 points in the first set and nine in the second, losing to Thiem for the first time.

Cecchinato became the lowest-ranked semifinalist at Roland Garros since No. 100 Andrei Medvedev advanced in 1999. At the start of the fifth set, he had a medical timeout for treatment for an apparent blister on his left foot. The Italian player was seen in a conversation with a tournament official but it was not clear why he was penalized.

The seventh-seeded Thiem is in sight of a first final at Roland Garros.

Zverev has youth on his side, but he has been spending too long on court and his body is showing it.

"First time I felt a pull was in the fourth game of the first set, when we had a few great points, a lot of physical points", Zverev, who had beaten Thiem on clay in the Madrid Masters final last month, told reporters.

Zverev managed just four winners in the second set.

Incredibly, this was nearly replicated by Fabio Fognini, who looked down and out after two sets, only to take his match with Marin Cilic to a decider, which eventually was taken by the Croat.

Zverev had issues with his left hamstring during his loss.

Soon enough, Zverev lost the second set, too, and it proved to be too much of a deficit to overcome.

Novak Djokovic equaled Roger Federer's mark of reaching nine consecutive quarterfinals at Roland Garros by beating No. 30 seed Fernando Verdasco 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 on Sunday.

After somehow coming through three consecutive five-set matches, the 21-year-old German finally contests his first grand-slam quarter-final today. "That's where I'm back", said the 2016 French Open champion.

"I am back in the locker room".

While Putintseva regularly lost her composure, Keys stayed calm throughout, and the big-hitting American secured victory on her first match point with a powerful serve that clipped Putintseva's racket and flew into the crowd.

Her box, including three-time major victor Lindsay Davenport, rose to acclaim Keys, who lost last year's U.S. Open final to friend and countrywoman Sloane Stephens.

They will meet again in the semifinals here after the 10th-seeded Stephens easily beat 14th-seeded Daria Kasatkina, 6-3, 6-1.

Stephens is also through to the semifinals, for the first time in her career.

The world number 72, who had never won a Grand Slam match before this week, stunned Belgian eighth seed David Goffin 7-5, 4-6, 6-0, 6-3.

She had her chances against Keys, troubling her with deft drop shots and spinning, looping forehands, but could not hold her nerve.

In the second game of the second set, she was convinced an incorrect call went in favor of Keys and asked the chair umpire to come down and check it.
