Roland Garros: Madison Keys completes the Slams quarterfinal sweep

"During treatment yesterday I had Sloane on (TV) and was living and dying on every point in the end", said Keys, who needs to overcome Kazakhstan's Yulia Putintseva to set up a potential semi-final showdown with Stephens.

Svitolina reached the quarterfinals at Roland Garros in 2015 and 2017 and was coming off a second consecutive title in Rome on red clay.

He will face another Spanish player Fernando Verdasco in the fourth round on Saturday.

Madison Keys has now matched her best run at the French Open.

Petra Kvitova's hot streak on clay has ended in disappointing fashion, with the Czech losing a tight match to Anett Kontaveit in a delayed French Open third-round encounter.

Keys, the US Open runner-up a year ago, will face either Czech 26th seed Barbora Strycova or Yulia Putintseva, the 98th-ranked Kazakh, for a place in the semi-finals.

It was a good tournament for the 30-year-old Buzarnescu - seeded 31st - a former Ph.D. student who has climbed more than 300 ranking spots in the last year.

Japan's Kei Nishikori advanced to the French Open's round of 16 on the strength of a straight-sets victory over France's Gilles Simon on Friday.

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

Barcelona beat South African champions Mamelodi Sundowns in friendly match
This is the second time that Sundowns will host Barcelona for a friendly game, having previously met in 2007, a match that the Catalans won 2-1.

On a sunny Court Philippe Chatrier, the 13th-seeded American had two match points at 5-2 and 40-15.

Keys agreed after she too completed her set of reaching at least the quarters at all four slams.

In the fourth set, his opponent served for the victory. But he then picked himself up with Dzumhur's help.

In that match, Osaka was one game from victory but blew a 5-1, third-set lead.

Keys is one of three Americans to reach the third round with Sloane Stephens, who beat her in the Flushing Meadows final past year, and three-times champion Serena Williams also in the hunt. Against Buzarnescu, serving a second time for the match, Keys screamed "Come on!" when she crushed a cross-court backhand victor to make it 40-15 and give herself another two chances for victory.

"The first two sets were fantastic", the seventh-seeded Austrian said of the 6-2, 6-0, 5-7, 6-4 win, ". then he raised his level".

Kontaveit rallied from 2-4 in the second set but squandered two match points when serving at 5-4 - missing two regulation forehands.

Play has started under overcast skies at the French Open with second-seeded Alexander Zverev and fourth-seeded Grigor Dimitrov both bidding to reach the fourth round for the first time.

They were playing their match later Sunday on Court Suzanne Lenglen.
