Tennis player Damir Dzumhur, ball boy in brutal collision

Dzumhur was a man on a mission in an epic third-round contest, giving both Alexander Zverev and a ball boy an almighty scare before he was beaten on Court Philippe Chatrier.

Dzumhur would go on to lose the match in a five-set thriller, with second seed Zverev saving match point to go through to the fourth round.

On Friday morning a ball boy found himself in a precarious situation as he went after loose ball during a match between Damir Dzumhur and Alexander Zverev.

"Hopefully many more to come", he said in his post-match on-court interview.

Lucas Pouille and Karen Khachanov were in the third set on center court when their third-round match was halted because of rain.

Fourth-seeded Grigor Dimitrov fell to 0-7 against top-50 opponents at the French Open and still has never made it to the fourth round at the clay-court Grand Slam tournament.

Novak Djokovic's target practice often failed to hit the bullseye but that did not prevent the Serbian eking out a 7-6 (1) 6-4 6-4 second round win over Spanish qualifier Jaume Munar at the French Open on Wednesday.

While Zverev, whose brother Mischa is also playing in the third round, reached the last 16 at Wimbledon a year ago, he has largely failed to live up to his world number three ranking in Grand Slams so far. They're going to kind of have the same mind as you and kind of get into your body and play the game with you as you are, because, I mean, I will not be able to play like Federer, I will not be able to play like Nadal so I have to find my ways to hurt different opponents.

The legendary siblings beat Sara Errani and Kirsten Flipkens 6-4 6-2 in front of a packed crowd on Court 7. Speaking further about the win he added: "He served for the match and I had to save lots of break points in the fourth and fifth sets".

The straightforward victory for 2016 French Open champion Djokovic was his 200th career tour-level win on clay.

That was followed by a four-set upset of 10th-seeded Pablo Carreno Busta, and then the surprising win over Goffin.

The 21-year-old German looked to be on the brink of another disappointing early exit from a Grand Slam, but he held his nerve to force a tiebreak, which he won comfortably and. eventually prevailed.

.

Two different ladies's contenders, Petra Kvitova and Elina Svitolina, superior in straight units towards Lara Arruabarrena (6-Zero 6-4) and Viktoria Kuzmova (6-Three 6-4).

World number 29 Dzumhur also served for the match in the fourth set, but Zverev clung on and claimed a 6-2, 3-6, 4-6, 7-6 (7/3), 7-5 victory.

She trailed Destanee Aiava 5-2 within the first set of her first match in Melbourne and saved three match factors within the third spherical towards Lauren Davis.

After a trade of breaks to start the decider, it seemed that Zverev was finally closing in on victory as he built a 4-2 lead. The first occasion was at Wimbledon past year.

No. 7 Dominic Thiem of Austria - a semifinalist at Roland Garros the past two years - faces No. 19 Kei Nishikori of Japan.
