He's the only active player outside of the "Big 4" of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray with three Masters titles. The one concern with Zverev is that he's now played 13 sets in this tournament to get to this point. Dzumhur held serve routinely, but was taken to deuce before taking the tenth game and set 6-4.
The German, 21 in April, looked to be on the brink of another disappointing early exit from a Grand Slam, with 26th seed Dzumhur serving for the match at 5-4 in the fourth set.
Zverev is in his second career fourth round appearance in a grand slam and hopes to make his first ever grand slam quarterfinal.
Nishikori won just 14 points in the first set and even fewer, nine, in the second, as his serve and service returns ran cold on the sun-kissed Court Philippe Chatrier.
Serena will be back on court against Julia Goerges on Saturday in what is her first grand slam appearance since giving birth last September.

Read on for a recap of Sunday's results from the 2018 French Open, complete with highlights of the day's best action in Paris. Donaldson had been dealing with leg cramps all set, and they seemed to have ended his match at 7-7. Japan's Kei Nishikori rolled over French star Gilles Simon 6/3; 6/1; 6/3, while America's Madison Keys powered her way to a 6/1; 7/6 (7) defeat of Japan's Naomi Osaka. Svitolina, who had twice played quarter-finals in the French Open, was defeated by Romanian Mihaela Buzarnescu 6-3 and 7-5 in a 2-0 set. His fight was not quite enough, with Dimitrov breaking the very next game and holding to prevail 10-8 in the final set.
Serving a second time for the match, the 23-year-old Keys let out a scream of "Come on!" when she hit a superb cross-court backhand victor to make it 40-15 and give herself another two chances for victory.
