Johanna Konta will renew one of her more interesting rivalries when she takes on Croatia’s Donna Vekic in the fourth round of the French Open.
It will be a seventh clash between the pair, with the head-to-head currently tied at 3-3.
Vekic, 22, is at a career-high ranking of 24, two places above Konta.
“She’s in great form,” said Konta. “She’s been playing great tennis.
We have had some pretty impressive battles in the past, so there is no reason why Sunday can’t be like that.
“When she’s playing well, she’s very tough to play. I will be expecting her to be playing well.
It’s well-documented that Rafael Nadal is a superstitious champion on court. That however, does not mean he is a perfectionist.
“I don’t believe in perfection,” Nadal said. “I believe that you can always go on court with the goal to do something better.”
The 11-time French Open champion is as close to perfect as one gets in Paris. Nadal improved to an astonishing 89-2 on Friday after defeating David Goffin in four sets to reach the fourth round.

His 2019 tournament got off to an interesting start, when the Spaniard hit his head on a camera while walking out for his introduction. It brought comparisons to 2017 Wimbledon, when Nadal smacked the ceiling of the No.1 Court tunnel during his pre-match routine.
“Wimbledon was my fault, 100 percent,” laughed Nadal. “Here was the fault of the camera. It was moving to the side when I was going. I went on this court a couple times and it never happened. Something [changed] with that camera.”
“It will be a good opportunity, another good chance for me to play against someone who is in good form, one of the best players in the world, and I will be looking to deal with the challenges as best I can.”
Roger Federer is playing at the French Open for the first time in four years as he bids to challenge Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic for more records.
Federer missed the 2016 event with a back injury and skipped the past two clay-court Slams to preserve his body.
Nadal is chasing a record-extending 12th Roland Garros title, while Djokovic can hold all four Grand Slam titles at once for a second time.
Beating Nadal, the 17-time Grand Slam champion, on clay is widely considered the ultimate challenge in the men’s game.
The Spaniard triumphed in Paris last year to become only the second player to win the same Grand Slam on 11 occasions, following Margaret Court at the Australian Open between 1960 and 1973.
Despite dominating clay-court tournaments in the build-up to the French Open in the past, Nadal had not reached a final this year until his win at the Italian Open earlier this month.
He did not drop a set in his journey to the final, where he beat Djokovic 6-0 4-6 6-1 to claim his first title since August.
