French Open order of play and schedule including Zverev vs De Minaur

Published

on

The French Open quarter-finals continue on Wednesday after Novak Djokovic’s shock withdrawal from the tournament due to a right knee injury.

The defending champion underwent an MRI scan after his five-set win over Francisco Cerundolo and it revealed a “torn medial meniscus”, forcing him to pull out of his quarter-final against Casper Ruud.

Djokovic defeated Ruud in last year’s French Open final but the Norwegian now progresses to the semi-finals for a third straight year, where he will face either Alexander Zverev or Alex de Minaur.

Zverev, the fourth seed, will be considered the favourite to reach Sunday’s final from this side of the draw after Djokovic’s exit, with De Minaur the first Australian to progress to quarters in Paris since Lleyton Hewitt 20 years ago.

On the women’s side, Aryna Sabalenka and Elena Rybakina will look to set up another semi-final clash after their thrilling battle in Madrid last month. Sabalenka takes on 17-year-old star Mirra Andreeva, while Rybakina is in action against the Italian 12th seed Jasmine Paolini.
