Timeline of Day 7 How Rafa Serena and Maria enjoyed a super Saturday at Roland Garros

Dominic Thiem and Marco Cecchinato have both completed their quarter-final duties on Tuesday and we cannot say the same for four players who have stepped in to highlight the Wednesday's action, as both quarter-finals are delayed for Thursday due to rain. Schwartzman saw two set points come and go but at the third time of asking, after a delay while a spectator was helped out after feeling ill, the Argentine ripped a forehand victor.

Nadal also called for a medical time-out at the end of the first set to receive some treatment on both of his wrists.

They will return on Thursday morning.

Next up for the Spaniard is a last-eight meeting with Diego Schwartzman, who came from two sets down to see off Kevin Anderson, runner-up to Nadal in last year's US Open final.

The two remaining men's quarterfinals were suspended in progress and will resume Thursday.

One theory says Donald actually wrote it, but that's easily refuted - we all know his tweeting style and it's not that. On May 14, the 48-year-old had surgery for a " benign kidney condition " but has not been seen in public since.

The Spanish third seed, who was the champion in Paris in 2016, swept aside the Russian 6-2, 6-1 in just an hour and 10 minutes.

She'll move on to face world No. 1 Simona Halep, who needed three sets to defeat No. 12 Angelique Kerber.

Rafael Nadal has lost his first set at the French Open since 2015. He had the ball in his hand at 30-15 when they left Court Philippe-Chatrier for the last time.

Marterer, enjoying his best run on just his third appearance in the main draw of a major, performed with admirable composure and maturity that belied his 22 years and did force another break midway through the third set but ultimately could do little to halt the Nadal juggernaut.

The gritty Argentine went toe-to-toe with the world No. 1, breaking him three times and booking two set points.
