  1. 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.

  2. Post update

    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'...

  5. 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...

    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.

    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...

  9. 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.

    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.

    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.

  12. Post update

    *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)...

  13. Post update

    *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.

    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.

    *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.

  16. 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...

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. Post update

    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.
