French Open: No. 2 Alexander Zverev thrashed by Dominic Thiem in quarter-finals

  French Open: No. 2 Alexander Zverev thrashed by Dominic Thiem in quarter-finals Dominic Thiem made it to a third straight French Open semifinal after swatting aside second-seeded Alexander Zverev 6-4, 6-2, 6-1 on Tuesday. The seventh-seeded Thiem is in sight of a first final at Roland Garros. In his way is 12-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic or unseeded Italian Marco Cecchinato. Their quarter-final on Court Suzanne Lenglen is in progress. There was no stirring comeback this time for Zverev. Heading into the match, the German had won three consecutive five-setters — trailing 2-1 in sets in each — but the rousing effort caught up to him against Thiem.

The 21-year-old was due to vacate her rented accommodation on the same day she returned to Philippe Chatrier Court to finish off Danish world number two Caroline Wozniacki.

Leading 7-6(5) 3-3 overnight after darkness interrupted their fourth-round clash on Sunday, the 14th seed reeled off three straight games before going off to find a hotel.

Asked later if she would be watching the rest of the day's action on TV she revealed her dilemma.

"I'm not sure if I will watch this match, because my house which I rent expired today, and I have to change to hotel," the 14th seed told reporters. "This is the problem.

"I booked it through Airbnb. So you have to pay in advance. And you never know what is going to happen and if you are in the middle of the second week it's fine to go to the hotel. I'm not complaining."

Kasatkina's longer-than-expected stay is more than welcome.

With so many of the top women's players bashing the ball baseline to baseline with relentless power, lightweight Kasatkina prefers to mix things up a little.

Denis Shapovalov knocked out of French Open

  Denis Shapovalov knocked out of French Open Denis Shapovalov's first career Grand Slam as a seeded player didn't last long. The No. 24 seed, from Richmond Hill, Ont., lost 5-7, 7-6 (4), 7-5, 6-4 to world No. 70 Maximilian Marterer of Germany in the second round of the French Open on Thursday. Shapovalov, 19, was the final Canadian singles player in the draw after Peter Polansky of Thornhill, Ont., and Vasek Pospisil of Vancouver lost first-round matches earlier this week. It was Shapovalov's first appearance in the main draw at Roland Garros. The loss prevented a possible showdown between Shapovalov and 10-time French Open champion Rafael Nadal, the top seed, in the fourth round.

She in not averse to some crafty sliced and high loopy top-spin. She is not afraid to venture forward and what she lacks in big weapons she more than makes up for with a tennis brain that belies her relative inexperience.

Having knocked out one reigning Grand Slam champion, Kasatkina now takes aim at U.S. Open champion Sloane Stephens and the American will definitely have to be on guard, having lost to her at Indian Wells this year when the Russian went on to reach the final.

"I'm trying to play more of a strategy game, because I'm not the biggest girl to hit balls so hard," Kasatkina said.

"I have to find different ways to win. This is interesting."

PARIS (Reuters) - Russian youngster Daria Kasatkina 's stirring run to the French Open quarter-finals left her temporarily homeless in Paris on Monday.

Kasatkina, the junior French champion in 2014, is the youngest of the eight quarter-finalists, but according to former French Open great Chris Evert is dangerous.

"She has had a pretty good run and has the claycourt game," the American told Reuters. "She has the slice, the dice and the drop shot and top-spin. She is definitely dangerous."

Wozniacki agreed after failing to figure her out.

"The slower the surface is, the better for her," she said. "She has very good hands and good angles and everything."
