Novak Djokovic Beats Albert Ramos-Vinolas at 2017 French Open

Police officers meet in front of the Roland Garros stadium for the French Open tennis tournament Friday

Nine-times champion Rafael Nadal was due to play fellow Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta and defending champion Novak Djokovic was set to take on Austrian Dominic Thiem. "It's very important for me to be in the quarter-finals one more time", said Nadal, who turned 31 on Saturday.

"It's obviously very terrible what's happening, or what's happened the last few weeks, and obviously what happened here in the past, as well", said former No. 1-ranked Caroline Wozniacki, who is Danish. Wasn't easy. But, yeah, each match I feel like I played better.

But his joy at matching Roger Federer's mark for last-eight appearances in Paris was overshadowed by an astonishing broadside at Ramos.

Meanwhile, No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki returned to the quarter-finals for the first time since 2010, eliminating 2009 champion Svetlana Kuznetsova, 6-1, 4-6, 6-2.

Djokovic found himself up against the man who came into the tournament with more clay-court wins than any other player this season, including a career-best victory over Andy Murray in Monte Carlo. "She is also at home". Most recently, Djokovic thumped Thiem 6-1, 6-0 in the semi-finals of the Rome Masters.

The 12th time victor of the Grand Slam, Novak Djokovic, is billed to play against sixth seed, Dominic Thiem, from Austria.

"The only positive Djokovic can draw from his crushing defeat by Thiem is that he can't play any worse than he is doing at the moment", said a disenchanted supporter.

While the pair have met five times in their history, with Djokovic winning all of them, it was the semi-finals previous year which the former world no.1 can use to his advantage. Novak Djokovic vs Dominic Thiem live streaming, French Open live streaming and tennis live streaming info follows.

He has dropped just 20 games in four rounds so far, just one more than he lost at the same stage in 2012, as he attempts to become the first player to win the same Slam 10 times. Thiem is looking to take the next step and win his first Grand Slam title, but he'll have his hands full with Djokovic on Tuesday. "I don't really like to play against him, because he has a game style which doesn't fit me at all".

The 2016 champion, playing in his first match since Andre Agassi left his side in Paris, got off to a slow start but soon looked back to his assured self of years gone by as he wrapped up a fine win.

"I think they are, here and [in] the United Kingdom, trying to do everything they can to keep the security at the highest level, and I think here they are doing a good job".
