The Quarter-Finals are set to conclude at Roland Garros on Wednesday with Day 11's schedule now confirmed and as ever, TennisUpToDate previews the action.
As is the case for the rest of the tournament, all action will be on Court Philippe Chatrier but again Iga Swiatek will not play a Night Session.
But neither will Alexander Zverev who has become accustomed to playing the last match of the night. Instead Denmark faces Norway as Holger Rune faces Casper Ruud

Matches to watch

Holger Rune v Casper Ruud

Headlining the ATP section is the Night Session tie as Rune will face Ruud. Both have been firmly on the rise in the past two years, with Ruud of course being a top seed and a finalist last year.
While Rune has lived up to early promise and is establishing himself as the next player to watch from Carlos Alcaraz for Grand Slam wins.
Both will look to extinguish the hopes of a Djokovic or Alcaraz win with those two being the favourites and one of these two could be the main challenger.
Albeit, Rune heads into this round with controversy after a double bounce against Francisco Cerundolo which has stirred debate. Ruud after horrific form to start the year has arrested the slide.
He has seen off two in-form players Zhizhen Zhang and Nicolas Jarry in quick succession. Head to head wise, despite Rune only being 20, he has played him five times.
This has seen a 4-1 lead for Ruud albeit Rune snapped a streak of losses in Rome recently, they also played at this stage last year which was won by Ruud in four sets.

Iga Swiatek v Coco Gauff

The main WTA tie comes from Iga Swiatek, the World No.1 and favourite for the title facing Coco Gauff.
The potential for a final with Aryna Sabalenka is there with the Belarusian facing Karolina Muchova but Gauff will look to snap a streak of losses and pay heed to that.
Six matches and six wins for the imperious Pole who will be favourite to do it again despite the prowess of the American.
They played of course in the final last year of Roland Garros which saw Swiatek win 6-1, 6-3 and since then she has also won every match on hard courts with the latest coming in Dubai earlier this year.
They are second up on Court Philippe Chatrier.

Beatriz Haddad-Maia v Ons Jabeur

Starting off proceedings are two trailblazers with Ons Jabeur and Beatriz Haddad-Maia both making history by reaching this point.
Haddad-Maia became the first Brazilian woman to reach a Quarter-Final of a Grand Slam in 55 years after her last win.
While for Jabeur, she is the first African player male or female to reach the Quarter-Finals in Paris. Further history for the Tunisian trailblazer.
She will look to make more on her favoured surface and has also bounced back well after fearing injury wise following Stuttgart.
Head to head wise, it favours Jabeur with a 2-0 lead and also the added factor of Haddad-Maia playing again the longest match of the year last time out may hand the initiative to Jabeur.

Alexander Zverev v Tomas Martin Etcheverry

Third up on the show court is Alexander Zverev in action once more continuing his superb run in Paris against Tomas Martin Etcheverry.
Zverev made light work of Grigor Dimitrov last round, while for Etcheverry, it was a tight win over Yoshihito Nishioka. He blasted 37 winners and 12 aces to reach his first major Quarter-Final.
He has so far seen off Alex de Minaur and Borna Coric in his best Grand Slam run. They have never met before head to head wise.
