Cilic misses US Open chance as Schwartzman progresses

That tournament proved a precursor to the opportunities that could emerge with so numerous game's top stars injured. He was forced to miss Australian Open, but made the last-16 at Roland Garros and Wimbledon.

"It's never great to win this way".

Schwartzman said: "Sometimes if you have luck in the draw and you can take the chances, it's always good for the new guys or for the guys who are outside the top 10". Another blow was delivered to the decimated draw when American hope and 10th-seeded John Isner was knocked out by No 23 seed Mischa Zverev by the scoreline of 6-4, 6-3, 7-6 (5).

Zverev, 30, has advanced at least one round further than his higher-ranked brother, Alexander. The World No 40 is in the fourth round of a Grand Slam event for the first time, where he will face South African Anderson.

Theresa May calls on China to act over North Korea missile launches
A government minister has held a face-to-face meeting with North Korea's ambassador to condemn the country's latest missile test. May and Japanese Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera boarded the Izumo on Thursday at a naval base in Yokosuka, south of Tokyo .

Russian wildcard Maria Sharapova was victorious in the last match of the day, defeating fellow wildcard Sofia Kenin in straight sets to set up a last 16 clash against last year's quarter-finalist, Anastasija Sevastova. "A ranking is something, yeah, that says something about an opponent". Zverev gets U.S. 17th seed Querrey next.

Following the second round departure of Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, which came hot on the heels of the pre-tournament withdrawal of second seed Andy Murray due to a hip injury, Cilic remained as the only man who had reached a major final in the bottom half of the draw.

Denis Shapovalov has taken the tennis world by storm this summer and now he's drawing some lofty comparisons.

His energy reverberated throughout the match as he managed to out-muscle the veteran Cilic, who didn't play his best tennis, but that doesn't undermine how Schwartzman played in arguably a defining match at this point in his young career.

Pouille beat Rafael Nadal a year ago here to reach the quarterfinals.

"I think my confidence, it's going up", Schwartzman said. "I'm feeling confident. I know the next round will be a tough one, but I'm ready". He is working with the 1993 U.S. Open finalist Cédric Pioline at this tournament.

"I can not play the way I want because I'm too stressed, too under pressure, too tight", Pouille said.
