This is a corking match – with only a Zverev medical time out delaying the fifth set on Suzanne-Lenglen. He’s getting a bit of work done his left foot, a troublesome toe it seems (we’ve all been there). Elsewhere, Nishikori is having a good go at fighting back at Thiem. He’s 5-4 up in the third.
A third five-setter in a row for the German. He has a knack for doing things the hard way and, on that evidence, he seems to have more left in the tank. Khachanov was a little sloppy doing the basics and he’s been punished. He’ll need to dig deep – and dip into the energy reserves – to edge himself back in front here.
