  The Latest: Sinner first QF debutant since next foe: Nadal PARIS — The Latest from the French Open (all times local): ___ 4:30 p.m. Roland Garros debutant Jannik Sinner ousted U.S. Open finalist Alexander Zverev from the French Open with a 6-3, 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 victory that could hardly be called an upset, so impressive has the 19-year-old Italian been on his run to the quarterfinals. Pulling the No. 6 seed this way and that with his precision groundstrokes, the 75th-ranked Sinner is the first debutant to reach the men's quarterfinals since Rafael Nadal, who'll be his next opponent. Nadal didn't stop at the quarterfinals as a newbie in 2005: He won the first of his 12 titles on the Paris clay.

Zverev had seven aces and didn't face a break point against Verdasco. He will next play Lloyd Harris in the quarterfinals.

  Zverev beats Canada's Auger-Aliassime in Cologne to end title wait COLOGNE, Germany — Alexander Zverev ended his 17-month wait for a title by drawing on the pain of his U.S. Open final defeat to beat Canada's Felix Auger-Aliassime 6-3, 6-3 and win the Cologne Indoors on Sunday. Zverev has had a breakthrough year in Grand Slam tournaments with his first semifinal at the Australian Open in January and first final at the U.S. Open last month, when he lost to Dominic Thiem. Zverev has said he thinks almost constantly about that final, and he credited it with raising his game in Cologne. “I had a very tough final in New York and, the next final I played here, I wanted to come out and play my best tennis,” he said.
