After upset loss at French Open, Novak Djokovic may skip Wimbledon

The 23-year-old American has now reached at least the last-eight of all four majors, after ending the dream run of Buzarnescu, who had never won a Grand Slam match before the tournament.

The Serbian, who has struggled with injury for much of the past year, was asked when he planned to make his first grass-court appearance.

"I know how to handle a Grand Slam now, how... to get that deep in such a tournament, and I think everything gets better with experience". Djokovic, who was sitting in a small press room without mics and just in front of a few journalists (most of them were waiting in the main press room), said he doesn't know whether if he will play Wimbledon next month.

"I always play well at a Slam and always build my form to peak at a Slam". I can not give you any answer', stated Djokovic, who dealt with neck and calf injuries during his match.

"How do I regroup?"

"So being and talking like this after the match is for me something normal for a great champion".

The Serbian needed lengthy treatment on a neck problem after dropping the first set. The third seed is seeking a second title in Paris after her 2016 success and takes on twice champion Sharapova next.

Djokovic had also squandered three set points in the second set and failed to serve out the fourth in the ninth game after being 5-2 in front.

She urged people not to defend her and said of her Jarrett tweet that she was "ambien tweeting" at 2 a.m. She wrote, as CNN reports: "guys I did something unforgivable, so do not defend me".

Djokovic, who completed his career Grand Slam by winning in Paris in 2016, sped away with the third set and can now look forward to a clash with either David Goffin or Marco Cecchinato.

Cecchinato (it's pronounced cheh-key-NAH'-toe) came through on his fourth match point, looping in a backhand return victor as Djokovic tried to surprise him with a serve-and-volley attempt.

In the first set itself, Djokovic required attention of the physio as he was suffering with neck trouble and even though he continued, played some brilliant tennis, he still fell short.

But from somewhere Cecchinato got a second wind, breaking back and forcing a tiebreak.

Three consecutive breaks of serve kicked off the third before Djokovic consolidated and he found a way through two times more as he reduced the deficit. The 72nd-ranked player beat Djokovic in a 3-hour, 26-minute match that ended in a tiebreak, 6-3, 7-6 (4), 1-6, 7-6 (11).

"Maybe I'm sleeping. It's wonderful, it's unbelievable for me".

From that point there was no way back for the Spaniard, who was aiming to reach his first Roland Garros quarter-final at the 15th attempt.

In the women's draw, Madison Keys is into the last four at Roland Garros for the first time in her career after seeing off the challenge of the unseeded Yulia Putintseva.
