Khachanov is in his second career fourth round appearance in a grand slam and hopes to make his first ever grand slam quarterfinal. Today saw him face off against an easy matchup on paper, the Serbian Dusan Lajovic, now ranked #60.
A German tennis player declared his love for the Yorkshire accent after struggling to understand a journalist's questions during a press conference.
A loss also would have left his resume still with merely one trip as far as the round of 16 at any Slam - and zero such runs at Roland Garros.
Eighth seed David Goffin will resume on Saturday with a 6-7 (6) 6-3 3-2 lead against Frenchman Gael Monfils.
The 21-year-old Zverev had to cope with the frustration of an error-riddled start of the match.
Yulia Putintseva strode to a 6-4, 6-3 victory over 26th seed Barbora Strycova, and she'll face Keys in the quarters. Khachanov has now won nine of the 10 sets played in this tournament and has a chance for this to be his breakthrough grand slam appearance at just 22 years old. Keys saw off Japanese 21st seed Naomi Osaka 6-1, 7-6 (9/7). Donaldson won the third 6-4, with Dimitrov taking the fourth by the same score. Dzumhur, however, rallied off three games in a row, and forced a match point as Zverev served to stay in the encounter. But I think it was a great test.
"Even if you're not playing your best, it's all about finding a way to win and finding the right solution to the right moment".
The final set did not disappoint.

China scolds USA for pulling invitation to major naval drill
The formation of islands, islets and reefs are also partially claimed by Brunei, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan and Vietnam. China's expulsion from the drills was described as an "initial response", suggesting that there might be more to come.
In the eleventh game, Dzumhur lost the first two points on serve and faced two break points. Donaldson had been dealing with leg cramps all set, and they seemed to have ended his match at 7-7.
The top-seeded pair of Dabrowski and Pavic finished off their opponents in just 55 minutes, firing five aces and converting three of five break point opportunities.
He fought back from 40-15 lead to deuce Damir's serve and had the first advantage for a break but his opponent staved it off and held.
The match between Pouille and Khachanov was one of two men's matches not completed as rain curtailed play at 1910 local time (1710 GMT), before being called off for the evening an hour later with the Russian leading 6-3, 7-5, 1-1.
Zverev, 21, who is seen as Rafael Nadal's principal obstacle to the Spaniard's expected coronation as champion for an 11th time, endured a nightmare outing before claiming victory after nearly four hours on Court Philippe Chatrier. It takes a lot to play this much and still be fresh against some of the top players in the world.
High men's seeds did not do as well. Although he had back-to-back must-win sets, this did not faze the tournament's #19 seed, who won decisively in the final two.
After defeating Damir Dzumhur on Friday, Zverev reflected on how the right coaching can help take his game to the next level. However, he did not have enough in the tank and lost 6-2 in the decider.
Zverev wasn't the lone large title to be stretched within the males's backside half, with Grigor Dimitrov - who gained the year-end championships in 2017 - and 2014 US Open finalist Kei Nishikori additionally overturning 2-1 deficits in units.
