French Open: Tsitsipas Enters Quarterfinals, Faces Medvedev

LOOKAHEAD TO MONDAY

Two teenagers have reached the men's fourth round at the French Open for the first time since 2006. For 19-year-old Italians Jannik Sinner and Lorenzo Musetti, the reward will be matches against Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. Nadal faces Sinner, a rising star seeded 18th. Djokovic plays Musetti, who is coming off an arduous five-set win in the third round. This is the first time in the Open era that Italy has had three men in the round of 16 at a Grand Slam. Italian Matteo Berrettini has already advanced to the quarterfinals with a walkover after Roger Federer withdrew from the tournament. American Sofia Kenin is the highest-seeded player left in the women's draw at No. 4, and she'll face Maria Sakkari. Defending champion Iga Swiatek plays unseeded Marta Kostyuk, and 17-year-old American Coco Gauff bids for her first quarterfinal berth in a major event when she takes on Ons Jabeur.
