Novak Djokovic eases into quarter-finals but David Goffin crashes out

ATP Tour

Novak Djokovic is safely into the quarter-finals of the French Open after a straight sets win against Fernando Verdasco.

The 2016 champion was in control throughout the contest and did not need to be anywhere near his best to ease to a 6-3 6-4 6-2 success – his 200th career win on clay.

Djokovic will now face Marco Cecchinato in the last eight after the Italian pulled off a shock win over eighth seed David Goffin.

The Belgian looked leggy after two five-setters already this week, and never looked to truly recover after dropping the first set, despite rallying to claim the second.

Cecchinato, the world number 72, went on to win 7-5 4-6 6-0 6-3.
