Au revoir!

Right, that's it for today's Sportsday. I know, I know... I'm sad too.

While Garbine Muguruza, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic are all safely through to the fourth round (with varying degrees of difficulty), one more big name is till hoping to join them.

Queen Vee is up next on Chatrier.

Check out how out how seven-time Slam winner Venus Williams gets on against Belgium's Elsie Mertens here.

And we'll see you again tomorrow to see how Andy Murray and Kyle Edmund get on in their third-round matches. About 10:00 BST. Don't be late.

Next up for Djokovic is, well, we don't exactly know yet.

What we do know is that it will be either Lucas Pouille - the next great French hope to end that barren Roland Garros run for the home nation - or Spain's Albert-Ramos Vinolas.

Pouille, the 16th seed, lost the opener but has bounced back to lead two sets to one. We're into the fourth on Court Suzanne Lenglen. And the home fans are getting very excited...

Andre Agassi heads for the locker room straight away, leaving brother Marko - love heart emblazoned on his t-shirt - and tennis coach and meditation expert Pepe Imaz to applaud their man off the court. It wasn't pretty, but another win for the new Team Djokovic.

And breaking news - Murray v Del Potro will be at around 12:00 BST on Saturday, with Edmund v Anderson kicking off at 10:00 BST.

Djokovic 5-7 6-3 3-6 6-1 6-1 Schwartzman

Make no mistake, Novak Djokovic was panicking out there on Chatrier.

The world number two lost his rag with himself, the umpire, the ball kids... but finally he regained composure to see off the world number 41.

That came around the time his new coach Andre Agassi turned up in the players' box. Now if that made a difference then he really is a 'super-coach'...

Game, set and match - Djokovic

Djokovic 5-7 6-3 3-6 6-1 6-1 Schwartzman


It was a struggle, but defending champion Novak Djokovic is through to round four.

The 12-time Slam winner sportingly points to his opponent, standing back next to his chair, allowing Schwartzman to hear Chatrier's appreciation.

And there is plenty of it for the 24-year-old Argentine.

One more game will do it for Djokovic. And I can't imagine Schwartzman will be able to wind up for anything near a full-blast service game...

Djokovic 5-7 6-3 3-6 6-1 5-1 Schwartzman*

Schwartzman grimaces as he waits for Djokovic's serve to arrive. He's gone. What a shame to finish like this.

Djokovic appears to be cruising to a routine hold to love until the Argentine goes through the pain barrier to give as good as he gets in a baseline rally.

Djokovic goes long for 40-15, but then tests Scwartzman's movement with a drop-shot which he knows he won't reach. He doesn't.

*Djokovic 5-7 6-3 3-6 6-1 4-1 Schwartzman

Here comes the trainer. Diego Schwartzman lies down on a mat next to his chair, a burly physio rolling around on the Argentine's back. It looks like a greco-roman wrestling move. I'm sure it helps...

Djokovic breaks

*Djokovic 5-7 6-3 3-6 6-1 4-1 Schwartzman

Oh dear, Diego Schwartzman appears to be in trouble. That's both on the scoreboard and in his physical condition.

Djokovic leads 40-15 on the Argentine's serve, with Schwartzman pulling up after the point, clutching his rib cage. I think the trainer has been called...

His next serve is powder puff, Djokovic pouncing to break.

Novak Djokovic

Djokovic 5-7 6-3 3-6 6-1 3-1 Schwartzman*

The Chatrier crowd are 'ooohing' and 'aaahing' after a brilliant point which puts Djokovic 30-15 ahead.

Schwartzman turns into Inspector Gadget (ask your dads, kids) to retrieve a deep Djokovic drive, Novak stepping in to finish him off with a forehand net volley.

That tees Novak up for the hold and appears to be a pivotal moment.

Diego Schwartzman

We've had two significant bouts of rummaging in the last few games as the crowd reacted to squalls of light rain, but clay courts can withstand a bit of damp and they look like making it through to the end.

*Djokovic 5-7 6-3 3-6 6-1 2-1 Schwartzman

Time for a weather update from our man in Paris. And it is good news for Djokovic (probably)...

*Djokovic 5-7 6-3 3-6 6-1 2-1 Schwartzman

"VAMMMMOSSSSSS!" An ear-splitting roar from Diego Schwartzman greets a big hold, achieved by a ferocious forehand which hits the back covers with Djokovic still marooned over on the ad side of the baseline.

Diego Schwartzman

Djokovic 5-7 6-3 3-6 6-1 2-0 Schwartzman*

Novak is trying to beat the clock after that earlier time warning, telling the ball kids to be quicker in delivering them to him.

He is certainly flustered in his service games, clearly conscious of the ticking clock. That enables Schwartzman to force deuce as he looks to break back instantly.

But Djoko ups the tempo immediately, clinching the game with a clinical forehand winner.

Novak Djokovic

*Djokovic 5-7 6-3 3-6 6-1 1-0 Schwartzman

Earlier we thought the Paris rain might save Djokovic. Now it might save Schwartzman. The brollies have been popped and the hoods pulled up by the Chatrier crowd.

Djokovic breaks

*Djokovic 5-7 6-3 3-6 6-1 1-0 Schwartzman

So the momentum is with Novak Djokovic, right? That's what we thought when he fought back against Denis Istomin at the Aussie Open. And look what happened there...

However, this time Novak still appears to be in the driving seat. A double break point for the 12-time Slam champion and although the first chance goes, the second doesn't.

Djokovic 5-7 6-3 3-6 6-1 0-0 Schwartzman*

Time for a quick Mexican Wave from the Chatrier crowd and then we're back under way in the decider.

Schwartzman to serve first...

Djokovic wins fourth set

Djokovic 5-7 6-3 3-6 6-1 Schwartzman

Now that's how you take out your frustration. Novak Djokovic hits back instantly after that spat with Carlos Ramos, breaking Schwartzman's serve for the third time in this set.

That means he is serving to take this into a decider, and that's what he does.

A delightful pick-up at the net tees up three set points, he needs just one as a blistering serve comes back across the net before being dispatched - with more of a hint of menace - by the Serb.

Dark skies, dark mood

There's a breeze picking up and a few darker clouds around, and not just above Djokovic's furrowed brow. The locals love nothing more than a bit of on-court aggro, and they seemed to side with the champion after that latest argument with the umpire. "Novak! Novak!" they yelled.

The weather could yet be a factor with an evening storm heading our way, apparently.

Djokovic 5-7 6-3 3-6 4-1 Schwartzman*

Tick, tick, boom! Djokovic might have a double break to his advantage, but he is still feeling the heat.

A sloppy backhand gives Schwartzman a break point and the Serb responds by angrily raising his racket and threatening to launch a ball skywards.

He doesn't, but it is still draws the attention of the umpire Carlos Ramos, who gives him a warning.

An irritated Djokovic reacts, ranting and raving as he asks Ramos why he has warned him.

He can't channel his anger in the next point, another unforced forehand error getting Schwartzman on the board.

'Even he does not know if he’s going to stay or go'


Kylian Mbappe

Manchester City’s new signing Bernado Silva says his ex-team-mate Kylian Mbappe is torn about whether to leave Monaco.

"I think even he does not know if he’s going to stay or go," said Silva in comments reported by Metro.

"I think he is happy in Monaco, but if he goes to a big club to play it’s also very good for him.

"He’s very young and it would be nice to stay a year longer, but his age is incredible, so you never know."

Reports suggest Arsenal have had an £86m bid rejected for the 18-year-old who scored 24 goals in 41 appearances for the Ligue 1 side last season.

However, BBC Sport’s David Ornstein reports that Arsenal are denying the story.

*Djokovic 5-7 6-3 3-6 4-0 Schwartzman

How does Schwartzman play this? Tank the rest of the set and channel all his energy - physically and mentally - into the decider?

Not likely. The Argentine pulls a rabbit out of the hat with a wonderful forehand winner at 40-40, moments after Djokovic receives a warning about slow play between serves.

Djoko is getting tetchy...

Diego Schwartzman

Double break for Djoko

*Djokovic 5-7 6-3 3-6 4-0 Schwartzman

Anyone fancy a bagel? Novak Djokovic does. The Serb is seizing the momentum, claiming the first two points of the fourth game, going on to rack up another couple of break points.

The world number two takes his second bite of the, er, bagel as Schwartzman finds the net from the baseline after a short rally.

The Argentine twirls his racket around in his fingers, probably as his mind does similar somersaults...

Frankie Dettori was on board the winner.

Welcome to Philippe Chatrier Court, where Novak Djokovic has spent the last two hours plus trying desperately to find his game. 'Super coach' Andre Agassi has been sitting, chin in hand, possibly wondering what's he's signed up for.

Diego Schwartzman might be the shortest man in the draw at 5ft 7in, but he packs a punch with his groundstrokes, and the Parisian crowd are in full state of upset excitement.

Novak Djokovic is in the groove. That's nine points on the spin for the 12-time Slam champion now after he backs up the break with a comfortable hold.

*Djokovic 5-7 6-3 3-6 2-0 Schwartzman

Diego Schwartzman's serve faced a severe examination by Doctor Djoko in the final game of the previous set, and again the Serb is using his racket as a stethoscope.

Schwartzman starts with relative ease, racing 40-0 ahead, before buckling and letting Djokovic back to deuce with a double fault.

Novak doesn't need a second invite, forcing his Argentine opponent into errors to take an early advantage.

Djokovic 5-7 6-3 3-6 1-0 Schwartzman*

Never mind an Alka Seltzer or two, a comfortable service hold is the best stomach settler for a tennis player.

Novak pops down of those at the start of the fourth set, an ace and a neat forehand winner sealing the deal.

*Djokovic 5-7 6-3 3-6 0-0 Schwartzman

Don't go anywhere folks. Get someone else to pick up the kids from after-school club, forget about that post-work pint, skip the chippy run.

This is way more interesting...

Mendy on his way


Benjamin Mendy

Go big, go early.

That seems to be Manchester City's mantra in this transfer window.

With Bernando Silva already bagged, Benfica goalkeeper Ederson on his way, the Daily Mirror are reporting that Monaco left-back Benjamin Mendy is next in line to join Pep Guardiola's revolution.

The 22-year-old should sign a £39.8m deal in the next few days apparently.

Djokovic loses third set

Djokovic 5-7 6-3 3-6 Schwartzman

Diego Schwartzman has never beaten a top-10 ranked opponent. How, on this evidence, I don't know.

The 24-year-old Argentine wobbles at the start of what he hopes is the set-clinching game, but recovers from 40-0 down to save three break points.

He dodges another in deuce, fails to take a first set point, but then grabs his second opportunity when Djokovic sends a forehand long.

Well, well, well...

Teddy Sheringham - whose last managerial job came to an end when he was sacked by Stevenage back in February 2016 - is close to being confirmed as Swindon's new manager.

Swindon are without a manager after the departure of Luke Williams in the wake of their relegation to League Two.

Chairman Lee Power said last week that there were three candidates in the frame after having an approach for Mansfield's Steve Evans turned down.

Djokovic loses serve

Uh oh. Novak Djokovic is walking into Trouble Town.

The Serb coughs up three break points - the first opportunities of the third set - to Diego Schwartzman.

A delicious backhand volley from Djoko wipes out one, an aggressive forehand from the Argentine - after a tug o'war of a rally - sees another one disappear.

The pair become embroiled in another baseline scrap, Schwartzman punching as good as he is getting. And Djoko is the one who finally runs out of puff, dragging a forehand into the tramlines.

The world number 41 is serving for the third set...

Buffon's blunder

Champions League final

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon returns to Cardiff for the Champions League final against Real Madrid on Saturday but he had a night to forget the last time he played in the Principality Stadium, as Wales beat Italy 2-1 in 2002.

Craig Bellamy rounded the Italian to score the winning goal on one of the most famous nights in Welsh football history.

Security stepped up in Cardiff

Champions League final

Following the Manchester bombings, security will be high for Saturday's final in Cardiff between Juventus and Real Madrid.

The roof at the Millennium Stadium will be closed for the first time in the competition's history - with security the primary factor in that decision.

Supporters will not be allowed to take bags into the stadium and have been urged to arrive no later than two hours before kick-off.

"This will be the biggest security operation undertaken in the city since the 2014 Nato summit," said South Wales Police assistant chief constable Richard Lewis.

Birmingham keen to host India v Pakistan series

Edgbaston is "very interested" in becoming a neutral venue for Pakistan and India matches, says Warwickshire chief executive Neil Snowball.

The Asian neighbours, who have not played a bilateral series since 2013, meet in the ICC Champions Trophy at the ground in Birmingham on Sunday.

The match could have been "sold out six times over" in a city whose population is almost 20% Pakistani or Indian.

"We have the experience of handling it," Snowball told BBC Sport.

"It is not the sort of game you can take anywhere because it is a completely unique match with a completely unique collection of fans and atmosphere."
