French Open playing order and quarterfinal schedule including Alexander Zverev vs. Alex de Minaur

The French Open quarter-finals continue on Wednesday after Novak Djokovic abruptly withdrew from the tournament due to a right knee injury.

The defending champion underwent an MRI scan after his five-set victory over Francisco Cerundolo and it revealed a “torn medial meniscus”, forcing him to withdraw from his quarter-final against Casper Ruud.

Djokovic defeated Ruud in the French Open final last year, but the Norwegian now advances to the semi-finals for the third year in a row, where he will face Alexander Zverev or Alex de Minaur.

Fourth seed Zverev will be considered the favorite to reach Sunday’s final from this side of the draw following Djokovic’s departure, with De Minaur becoming the first Australian to advance to the quarter-finals in Paris since Lleyton Hewitt’s 20 years past.

In the women’s game, Aryna Sabalenka and Elena Rybakina will try to set up another semi-final clash after their exciting battle in Madrid last month. Sabalenka will take on 17-year-old star Mirra Andreeva, while Rybakina will be in action against Italian 12th seed Jasmine Paolini.
