Novak Djokovic casts doubt over Wimbledon after shock French Open exit

Novak Djokovic booked his place in the fourth round of the French Open with a hard-fought victory over Roberto Bautista Agut on Friday.

Putintseva, who made the French Open quarterfinals in 2016, is looking for the first Grand Slam semifinal appearance of her career.

When asked if he would compete in the grass-court season, he replied: 'I don't know.

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

"I'm just not thinking about tennis at the moment". "Sorry, guys, I can't give you that answer".

On Tuesday, Cecchinato politely declined to speak about it, preferring instead to focus on his achievement, how he had dismantled the game of former world No 1 Djokovic, who was distraught after the match, mumbling short answers in a press conference he ended after little over four minutes.

It was the first time Nadal had dropped a set on clay since Thiem's victory against him in Rome in 2017.

But Cecchinato proved an even bigger pain in the neck for the 2016 Paris champion.

The Spaniard seized total control of the match in the second set, as he held serve, despite facing two break points, and made the most of two out of three break points to double the lead. Italian Cecchinato was mixing things up to great effect, tying Djokovic to the baseline while throwing in regular, at times remarkable, spin-heavy drop-shots from the back of the court.

At 5-5 in the second set tie-breaker, a Djokovic volley deflected off the net and landed wide.

The 31-year-old failed to serve out the fourth in the ninth game after being 5-2 in front and in an epic fourth set tie-breaker, Djokovic saved three match points but wasted three set points as Cecchinato became the first Italian man to take part in a major semi-final since Corrado Barazzutti at the 1978 French Open.

The 21-year-old Zverev claimed his third successive comeback win in five sets to reach his first Grand Slam quarter-final, beating Russian Khachanov 4-6, 7-6 (7/4), 2-6, 6-3, 6-3.

But Cecchinato had not given up, yet, and he broke back for 5-4 to force a memorable tiebreak. Maybe I am sleeping.

The Serbian reached for a drop shot to get a set point, this time.

"It's incredible. It's unbelievable for me". Stephens beat Keys in the U.S. Open final last September, and Thursday's rematch will be the first all-American women's semifinal at the French Open since Serena Williams defeated Jennifer Capriati in 2002. I am very happy because it is unbelievable to beat Novak Djokovic at a quarter-final in Roland Garros.
