French Open 2018 tennis results: Novak Djokovic, Caroline Wozniacki head to Round 4
Wozniacki looked dominant in her match, and Djokovic looked more like his old self
Could Novak Djokovic be back? It's hard to say, but he's winning matches in a relatively decisive manner again. The No. 20 seed took down No. 13 Roberto Bautista Agut in four sets to move into the fourth round of the 2018 French Open. Djokovic, of course, lost in the fourth round of the Australian Open to Chung Hyeon, and he's seeking his first quarterfinal since Wimbledon last year.
He'll be facing No. 30 Fernando Verdasco, who upset No. 4 Grigor Dimitrov in on Friday in a dominant performance. Also in the men's draw, No. 2 Alexander Zverev, No. 7 Dominic Thiem and No. 19 Kei Nishikori advanced. David Goffin's match against Gael Monfils was suspended, as was Lucas Pouille's match against Karen Khachanov. Both of those matches were suspended in the third set.
In the women's draw, No. 2 seed Caroline Wozniacki routed Pauline Parmentier to make it to the fourth round. The Australian Open winner is seeking her second Grand Slam, and she seems to be hitting her stride. She'll go up against No. 14 Daria Kasatkina, who took down Maria Sakkari in three sets to move on.
No. 13 seed Madison Keys, an American, defeated No. 21 Naomi Osaka. She'll play No. 31 Mihaela Buzarnescu, who upset No. 4 seed Elina Svitolina. Also advancing Friday were No. 26 Barbora Strycova and Yulia Putintseva.
Only one Round 4 women's match is left to be set for Sunday, and it will be between the winners of No. 10 Sloane Stephens vs. Camila Giorgi and No. 8 Petra Kvitova vs. No. 25 Anett Kontaveit. Those matches have been postponsed until Saturday morning.
