After his recent defeat to record champion Rafael Nadal last year, Ruud is one of the favorites this time around – but he’s played a mixed clay season so far.

Opponent Zhang missed out on being the first Chinese in the Open Era (since 1968) to reach the round of 16 of a clay court Grand Slam. He managed to do just that at the Masters in Madrid when he knocked out top ten player Taylor Fritz on his way to the top 16.

Nishioka jumps out to win in five sets

The tournament ended for Thiago Siboth Wild (Brazil) victorious Medvedev. World No. 172. Lost to Japan’s Yoshihito Nishioka 6-3, 6-7 (8-10), 6-2, 4-6, 0-6. Seyboth Wild had several set points in the second round and was later unable to use a 2-1 set lead to win.

Round 3: Nishioka defeated Seibut Wild in five matches

Meanwhile, near the end of the second set, Nishioka went berserk after a ball that was just outside the line, hit his opponent’s half court and referee John Bloom (Australia) could not reassure him. Since the Japanese had received an earlier warning, he lost a point, and with it his service game.

For the 27-year-old, who was in the last 16 at the Australian Open, reaching the fourth round is his greatest success on the seventh attempt at Roland Garros. The five-set match between Nishioka and Seboth Wilde was the 30th full-distance match at this French Open – the last being in 2001.

In the Grand Slam era, there have been four times more than 30 five-set matches in a single tournament.

Since Ron advanced without a fight in the second round – Gael Monfils pulled out with injury – he was on the field for almost five hours at Roland Garros.
