10Novak Djokovic stands to add to a historic list of firsts today when he meets German Jan-Lennard Struff. Should the Serb prevail he would be come the first man to reach 10 consecutive quarter-finals at Roland-Garros.

13 – The number of times Madison Keys has reached the second week from her past 17 Grand Slams, following her run to the Australian Open semi-finals in 2015. Her win-loss record over that period stands at 56-16, a 77.8 per cent success rate in matches at the majors. 

47 – The number of aces Alexander Zverev has notched to reach the fourth round, the third highest of men left in the singles draw.

95 – Polish 18-year-old Iga Swiatek has cracked 95 winners to reach her maiden fourth round at a Grand Slam.

2001 – The last time two American women aged 20 or younger reached the fourth round at a major when Venus Williams (then 20) reached the semi-finals and Serena Williams (then 16) reached the fourth round of the Australian Open. Sofia Kenin and Amanda Anisimova have matched the feat at this year’s Roland-Garros.

2012 – The last time a women’s qualifier reached the last eight at Roland-Garros when Yaroslava Shvedova advanced as far. Moldovan-born Spaniard Aliona Bolsova could do so if she finds a way past American Anisimova.
