Follow along as we bring you updates from around the grounds at Roland-Garros 2023
12:19am Sascha into second week
No.22 seed Alexander Zverev extended his record against Frances Tiafoe to 7-1 head-to-head with a late-night 3-6, 7-6(3), 6-1, 7-6(5) victory to move into the Roland-Garros fourth round for a sixth consecutive year.
Zverev, a semi-finalist in Paris the last two years, will square off with Grigor Dimitrov for a place in the quarter-finals.
11:13pm Zverev surges forward
The German world No.22 has taken the third set 6-1 and the pressure's now on Tiafoe to pull it back. The American is currently serving at 2-2 in the fourth. The crowd are enjoying this night session on Chatrier.
10:17pm Zverev draws level
Tiafoe rallied back from a break down to force a tiebreak but Zverev still clinched the 63-minute second set 7-6(3) and it's all square in the night session on Chatrier. There was a disputed call at 5-3 that didn't go Tiafoe's way but the American is at his bench and is letting it go. Winner of this match gets Dimitrov next!
10:00pm Jabeur, Dimitrov reach fourth round
Jabeur climbed from a set down to overcome Serbian lefty 4-6, 6-4, 6-2 to set up a fourth-round clash with Bernarda Pera.
Roland-Garros is the only Grand Slam where Jabeur has yet to reach the quarter-finals.
Dimitrov has yet to drop a set en route to the last 16, and the Bulgarian needed just over two hours to defeat Daniel Altmaier 6-4, 6-3, 6-1.
9:22pm Jabeur draws level against Danilovic
Tunisian No.7 seed Ons Jabeur has evened up her third round 4-6, 6-4 against Serbia's Olga Danilovic over on Court Suzanne-Lenglen.

American No.12 seed Frances Tiafoe has taken the first set 6-3 against last year's semi-finalist Alexander Zverev in 38 minutes.
7:26pm Tsurenko knocks out Andreescu
Tsurenko needed just 62 minutes to dispatch former US Open champion Andreescu 6-1, 6-1 and reach the Roland-Garros fourth round for the first time since 2018. The 34-year-old will next take on world No.1 and defending champion Iga Swiatek.
"It's one of the biggest challenges on the tour right now," Tsurenko said of her upcoming fourth-round meeting with the three-time major winner.
Moments earlier, on Court Suzanne-Lenglen, Argentina's No.23 seed Francisco Cerundolo upset American No.9 seed Taylor Fritz 3-6, 6-3, 6-4, 7-5 in 2hr 50min to reach the fourth round at a Grand Slam for the first time. The 24-year-old plays Holger Rune next for a place in the quarter-finals.
7:18pm Sascha to meet Big Foe under the lights
The night session is set to start in about an hour. No.22 seed Alexander Zverev takes a 6-1 head-to-head record lead into his showdown with No.12 seed Frances Tiafoe.
6:55pm Tsurenko leading Andreescu
Ukrainian world No.66 Lesia Tsurenko has taken the opening set 6-1 over 2019 US Open champion Bianca Andreescu on Court Simonne-Mathieu.
The 34-year-old Tsurenko is looking to reach the Roland-Garros fourth round for the second time in her career, and first since 2018.
With quarter-final spots on the line and a juicy schedule in the cards, Day 8 promises to deliver on all fronts. Carlos Alcaraz and Novak Djokovic will play back-to-back on Court Philippe-Chatrier during the day session, while Aryna Sabalenka and Sloane Stephens will play under the lights.
South American breakthroughs
Jarry(pictured below) recorded his 19th tour-level clay win of the season (second-most on tour behind Alcaraz, who has 23) and extended his winning streak to seven matches in a row with a 6-2, 6-3, 6-7(7), 6-3 triumph over American Marcos Giron.
The 27-year-old Santiago native hit 55 winners including 15 aces in his three-hour victory. His next opponent is 2022 runner-up Casper Ruud, who lost to Jarry in Geneva on the eve of Roland-Garros.
Meanwhile, 23-year-old Etcheverry, who had one Grand Slam main draw win to his name prior to this fortnight (at Australian Open 2023), punched his ticket to the fourth round with a three-hour straight-sets victory over No.15 seed Borna Coric.
The world No.49, who is managed by former top-10 player Juan Monaco, will square off with Yoshihito Nishioka in the last 16.
Over on Court Simonne-Mathieu, Brazilian No.14 seed Beatriz Haddad Maia advanced to the fourth round of a Grand Slam for the first time in her career with a 2hr 48min 5-7, 6-4, 7-5 victory over Ekaterina Alexandrova.
Haddad Maia had never made it past the second round in singles at any of her previous 11 main draw appearances at the majors.
4:35pm Doubles match added to Chatrier

Iga Swiatek improved her impressive Roland-Garros record to 24-2 win-loss with a merciless 6-0, 6-0 victory over China's Wang Xinyu to reach the fourth round on Parisian clay for the fifth time in as many appearances.
The Polish world No.1 owns the second-best match-win percentage at Roland Garros in women's singles in the Open Era at 92.3% (alongside Chris Evert) behind only Margaret Court (95.2%).
Swiatek will play Bianca Andreescu or Lesia Tsurenko in the last 16.
4:12pm Gauff gets it done
No.6 seed Coco Gauff completed her comeback against 16-year-old Mirra Andreeva, advancing to the fourth round for a second straight year with a 6-7(5), 6-1, 6-1 in 2hr 3min.
Gauff next faces Anna Karolina Schmiedlova or Kayla Day for a place in the quarter-finals.
3:42pm Coco responds
Sixth-seeded Gauff has grabbed the second set in 28 minutes to force a decider against Andreeva. Gauff owns a 13-3 win-loss record at Roland-Garros and made the final in singles and doubles last year.
3:12pm Andreeva snatches tiebreak
After trading breaks three times, Andreeva grabbed the 65-minute opening set 7-6(5) against Gauff.
The 16-year-old Andreeva is currently ranked 143 in the world. She was unranked 14 months ago.
3:06pm Rune eases into R4
No.6 seed Holger Rune is through to the Roland-Garros fourth round for a second consecutive year with a smooth 6-4, 6-1, 6-3 victory over Argentinian qualifier Genaro Alberto Olivieri.
The 20-year-old Dane will take on Taylor Fritz or Francisco Cerundolo next.
2:55pm Nishioka through in five
Japan's world No.33 Yoshihito Nishioka has completed a 3hr 38min 3-6, 7-6(8), 2-6, 6-4, 6-0 victory over Daniil Medvedev's conqueror Thiago Seyboth Wild to reach the fourth round at Roland-Garros for the first time in his career, on his seventh appearance.
The 27-year-old Nishioka will face the winner of the clash between Borna Coric and Tomas Martin Etcheverry in the last 16.
2:30pm Clash of teen titans has kicked off
16-year-old Mirra Andreeva has had a good start against 19-year-old Coco Gauff in their highly-anticipated third-round clash on Court Suzanne-Lenglen.
The teen qualifier and last year's finalist Gauff have traded breaks before Andreeva wrestled back the lead for a 4-2 advantage in the first set.
1:50pm Casper into second week
No.4 seed Casper Ruud is through to the Roland-Garros fourth round for a second straight year thanks to a 4-6, 6-4, 6-1, 6-4 victory over China's Zhang Zhizhen.
The 2022 Roland-Garros and US Open finalist needed just 2hr 35min to complete the victory and will face Chilean Nicolas Jarry or American Marcos Giron in the last 16.
1:36pm Juniors draws are out
The draws for boys' and girls' singles have been released with juniors action set to kick off at Roland-Garros tomorrow.
Japan's Sarah Saito is the top seed of the girls' singles draw, while Mexico's Rodrigo Pacheco Mendez headlines the boys' field.
1:12pm Rune-Olivieri underway on Chatrier
Court Philippe-Chatrier had a later than usual start today due to the withdrawal of Elena Rybakina, who was scheduled to face Sara Sorribes Tormo at 11:45am.
At 231 in the world, Olivieri is the lowest-ranked man to reach the third round at Roland-Garros this year.
1:05pm Ruud steadies the ship
After dropping the opening set to Zhang, Ruud is back on track and has taken the the next two for a 4-6, 6-4, 6-1 lead over on Court Suzanne-Lenglen.
12:55pm Drama on Court Simonne-Mathieu
Japan's world No.33 Yoshihito Nishioka has taken a 67-minute second set to level the match against Brazilian Thiago Seyboth Wild 3-6, 7-6(8).
Just a couple of games earlier, Nishioka was handed a point penalty for crossing the net to dispute a call with the umpire. He already had a code for racquet abuse earlier in the match. A livid Nishioka lost his cool and got broken, giving his opponent the opportunity to serve for a two-set lead. But Nishioka somehow regrouped and broke back, and hung tight in the tiebreak to even things up against Seyboth Wild.
11:45am Rybakina out
No.4 seed Elena Rybakina, who was due to face Spain’s Sara Sorribes Tormo in the third round, has announced her withdrawal from Roland-Garros 2023, saying she is "far from being 100 per cent".
"I was not feeling good already yesterday and the day before, so I didn't sleep two nights and had some fever," Rybakina said in a press conference. "Today I really tried on the warm-up, but I feel that the right decision is to withdraw, because it's really tough to play with these conditions."
There will be no play on Court Philippe-Chatrier before 1:00pm.
11:00am Nishioka looks to stop Seyboth Wild's run
Over on Court Simonne-Mathieu, Japanese No.1 Yoshihito Nishioka is targeting a fourth-round showing at a second consecutive Grand Slam. He broke the third-round barrier at the majors at the Australian Open in January and could now make it back-to-back second weeks.
Meanwhile qualifier Thiago Seyboth Wild, who upset No.2 seed Daniil Medvedev in the first round and took out Guido Pella in the second, aims to become the first Brazilian to reach the Roland-Garros fourth since Thomaz Bellucci in 2010.
10:50am Ruud v Zhang on Lenglen
The first Chinese man to reach the third round at Roland-Garros since Kho Sin-Khie in 1937, Zhang Zhizhen will be searching for the second top-10 win of his career when he takes on Casper Ruud in the opening match on Court Suzanne-Lenglen today.
Last year's finalist Ruud is looking to record a 14th win on clay this season. The Norwegian has tallied up the most clay wins (83) since 2020.
