Roland Garros day 9 recap:Investigation,super-Djokovic, Roger Federer's future and...

Novak Djokovic continues his march towards the final of the Roland Garros 2020. The Serbian, protagonist of a new great performance, has reached the quarter-finals of the Parisian Slam, as have Andrey Rublev, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Petra Kvitova and Laura Siegemund.

After the defeat against Jannik Sinner, Alexander Zverev revealed the truth about his real state of health: "Why did I ask the doctor during the match? The other night after the match I won against Cecchinato I was totally ill and I still feel bad today.

I can barely breathe, I think you can tell from my voice. Yesterday I also had a fever and during the night it was high at 38 degrees. Let's just say I'm not in my best physical condition and I think this has played a small role in my performance of today."

Nick Kyrgios strikes again. The Australian tennis player, currently stopped due to the Pandemic, continues to attack other Tour players, after Zverev, Coric, Boris Becker, Djokovic and recently Karen Khachanov. This time it is Sebastian Korda's turn, the great revelation of this Roland Garros 2020.

Korda has published a post on social media with the shirt signed by his great idol, Rafael Nadal. Korda defined this moment as the happiest moment of his life, and this thing was not appreciated by Kyrgios who criticized the mentality of the tennis player and his behavior on social networks, adding that Rafael Nadal literally destroyed him.

annoyed by the attitude of Kyrgios, recently also critical of the Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta.

Roger Federer has been out for months, has undergone double surgery and will probably return to the field at the next Australian Open.

Here are the statements of world number two Rafael Nadal about his rival-friend: "In the last few months I have talked a lot with him. We talked about different things that happened this year, we talked about work and also on a personal level about how they were doing.

going our lives. It has been a difficult year for everyone and we have discussed various things. I know he was doing better and I hope he will be back as soon as possible. It is bad to know when one of us is injured and we must be aware that we will not see Roger for another ten years.

He is one of the greatest icons of the sport and everyone is good that he is on the court." According to the Victoria police, six professional tennis players have been investigated for agreeing to match match-fixing of some tournament tournaments in Brazil and Egypt in 2018.

The anti-corruption body Tennis Integrity Unit is also investigating the matter, which has focused on a series of matches played at the end of April 2018 at the Future F1 Brazil tournament and the Futures F15 Egypt of the International Tennis Federation.

Documents released by the Melbourne Court of Magistrates identify players involved in suspicious games such as Swede Christian Lindell, Brazilians Thales Turini, Carlos Severino and Caio Silva, Egypt's Issam Taweel and France's Maxence Broville.

The match-fixing allegations came to light during an investigation by the Victoria Police's Sports Integrity Intelligence Unit, thanks to reports of suspicious betting by two Indian citizens living in Melbourne, Harsimrat Singh and Rajesh Kumar.
