Six of the eight women's quarterfinalists at the French Open have never made it so far at Grand Slam tournament.

Three of them will be in action at Roland Garros on Day 10. Former junior champion Paula Badosa of Spain will face Tamara Zidansek of Slovenia. Zidansek is the first woman from her country to advance so deep at a major.

Second-seeded Daniil Medvedev will play fifth-seeded Stefanos Tsitsipas in the men's draw. The other men’s match will be between No. 6 Alexander Zverev and unseeded Alejandro Davidovich Fokina of Spain. Davidovich Fokina will be playing in his first major quarterfinal.
