The 13th seed raced through the opening set in just 23 minutes and while Buzarnescu produced more resistance in the second set, Keys was rarely troubled. "[At the] beginning of the fourth set I thought, okay, I can turn this match around, especially when I saved a few break points". Khachanov punished him and broke for 5-5.
"For me it is a dream", Cecchinato said.
Stephens, the 10th-seeded American, also reached the last eight in Paris for the first time, beating No. 25 Anett Kontaveit of Estonia 6-2, 6-0. I couldn't serve. I couldn't really do anything.
However, despite four wins in the last week here in Paris, Zverev's hold/break numbers have taken a hit - tight wins for a top player will do that - and it's now Thiem with the slight edge, particularly on serve. And he's come from two sets to one down three straight times, beating Dusan Lajovic, Damir Dzumhur and now the big Russian.
Trump to stick with hard line on trade as G7 showdown looms
Trump and Trudeau are expected to meet during the president's trip to Canada for the G-7 summit this weekend. Mexico is fighting back against President Trump's tariffs on steel and aluminum.
But he put the second, a simple forehand victor, into the net and Zverev survived before going on to register a 6-2 3-6 4-6 7-6 (7/3) 7-5 victory in just under four hours. Cecchinato next faces Austrian Dominic Thiem for a place in Sunday's final.
I was hurt a little bit. "Well, I'm on the other side of the court".
Having said this, Thiem's statistical edge is paper-thin and certainly not enough to justify a lower market price, so it is utterly evident that the market is factoring in a lack of faith in Zverev's ability to back up three consecutive 3-2 victories and in short, thinking that the German will be absolutely knackered from a fitness perspective. He's going to be pumped. "I'm not that young anymore", said Thiem. "So I don't know where he was completing and what he was completing, because I think if we watch on the Hawk-Eye, the ball is totally out". I just went and searched for her in the training room. "So I think we can make it legendary and that would be very nice", Thiem, 24, told reporters after his huge forehand helped him to destroy Japan's Nishikori.
"I think this year I'm physically and mentally fresher than I have been the last two years".
Bayer to retire Monsanto's name upon completion of merger
It's a combination of equity and debt transactions, some of which have already been completed, the company said in a news release. In a way, it's an indication of how successful anti-Monsanto protesters have been in shaping public perception.
Zverev has come through three consecutive matches that went the distance to break new ground at a major. "So that's all positives for now". "Everything comes together slowly and I'm happy to be here".
"I made a promise to myself and to my coach and to my team that if I'm not at least 60 percent or 50 percent, then I probably shouldn't play". "I will do everything I can to recover, as I said after the last match". Now I want to enjoy the fantastic moment that I am living. Both have provided Nadal with challenges during this clay court season, although only Thiem has beaten him.
Cecchinato and Djokovic, who meet Tuesday, have crossed paths often in Monte Carlo. He's definitely playing great tennis.
"This is a very positive week for me".
Tomorrow, four more quarterfinal berths are on the line.
