Red-faced Basilashvili has no advice for Nadal opponents

Djokovic said he is buoyed by Agassi’s presenceAP

Djokovic had 55 unforced errors in the match and went down two sets to one before storming back.

He caused an upset in the first round, overcoming Gilles Simon in four sets, before getting the better of Viktor Troicki in three separate tie-breakers, proving his ability to handle pressure.

Trouble brewed when facing break points with a healthy lead, though, with the umpire handing him a warning - something that bemused the Serb.

The biggest cheer of the match came when Basilashvili, a little-known 25-year-old ranked 63, finally won a game at 6-0 5-0. The in-form Austrian, who stunned Nadal in Rome last month, goes up against Horacio Zeballos next.

This may surprise the casual tennis observer: Even after a straight-sets win that, on paper, resembles a blowout, the loser has often won nearly as many points as the victor.

Not aware of any Kumble-Kohli rift: BCCI secy
Reportedly, Kohli was unhappy with Kumble's decision to choose Kuldeep Yadav in the fourth India-Australia Test at Dharamsala. In the words of one official familiar with the details, Kumble has been conducting himself like a "headmaster" at a school.

- Defending champion Garbine Muguruza claimed a 7-5 6-2 victory over Yulia Putintseva of Kazakhstan to reach the fourth round. He continued to chirp with Ramos, who issued him a second warning for unsportsmanlike play to complement a warning for slow play earlier in the same game.

Rafa Nadal took another step closer to a 10th French Open with a ruthless 6-0, 6-1, 6-0 third-round thrashing of Georgia's Nikoloz Basilashvili on Friday.

"I think I played great but at the beginning of the match he was not playing bad, and I was able to produce winners, to play with no mistakes, to play very long".

"The score is quite embarrassing but I have to accept it", said Basilashvili, before departing the throne room, as Roberto Bautista Agut prepares to petition the sovereign in the fourth round, having seen off Jiri Vesely in straight sets.

The Spaniard has now won 98 of 100 best-of-five set clay-court matches in his career and has also won 75 of 77 matches at Roland Garros.

Trump to decide next week whether to quit Paris climate agreement
Trump was also asked by Pope Francis at the Vatican last week to keep the U.S.in the climate change accord. Trump, on the other hand, once called climate change a "hoax" invented by China to hurt US manufacturing.

- After Goffin briefly received off-court treatment, the chair umpire announced that the Belgian had to abandon the match.

"So I think there are ways he can take his game, at 30 years old, and older - because hopefully he will want to play for a while - and he will start making it easier for himself by knowing what he should do with the guy across the net".

Muguruza will next face either Shelby Rogers of the United States or 13th-seeded Kristina Mladenovic of France.

Goffin was serving for the first set and led 40-0 but allowed Zeballos back into the game.

Zeballos, 32, is through to the fourth round of the French Open for the first time, and will now play the victor of the match between sixth seed Dominic Thiem of Austria and American Steve Johnson.
