Grigor Dimitrov sent packing, Alexander Zverev survives big scare
Grigor Dimitrov’s wait for a fourth-round appearance at the French Open continues after he was dumped out on Friday while Alexander Zverev just about made it into the next round.
Fourth seed Dimitrov was beaten in straight sets by Fernando Verdasco with the Spaniard securing a 7-6 (7-4), 6-2, 6-4 in two hours and 22 minutes at Roland Garros.

Verdasco will take on either Novak Djokovic or Roberto Bautista Agut for a place in the last 16.
Third seed Zverev is into the fourth round, but he was taken to five sets for the second match in a row as he was given a major fright by Damir Dzumhur.
He saved a match point in the fifth set before winning 6-2, 3-6, 4-6, 7-6 (7-3), 7-5 in over three hours. The win is his first over a top 50 player at a Grand Slam.
