Tennis-French Open roundup from day six

June 2 (Reuters) - Here is a roundup of day six at the French Open on Friday.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “I do it on my own time, I do it on my own dime. My own money. I don’t want anything. Just want to help him (Djokovic).” - American Andre Agassi said on teaming up with world number two Novak Djokovic ahead of the French Open this year.

FACT OF THE DAY: The last triple bagel at Roland Garros came in 1993 when Sergi Bruguera beat Thierry Champion 6-0 6-0 6-0 in the second round. The scoreline has occurred only five times at grand slams in the Open era, with three of them coming in Paris.

STAT OF THE DAY: Rafael Nadal’s 6-0 6-1 6-0 win over Nikoloz Basilashvili marked his 98th victory in 100 best-of-five-set matches on clay. It was also the most one-sided scoreline the Spaniard has recorded at Roland Garros. Nadal’s previous best was a 6-2 6-0 6-0 victory over Juan Monaco in the fourth round in 2012.

PERFORMANCE OF THE DAY: Defending champion Novak Djokovic came back from two sets to one down to overcome world number 41 Diego Schwartzman 5-7 6-3 3-6 6-1 6-1 in the third round. The second seed is now joint third on the all-time list for most wins at Roland Garros with 58. (Compiled by Hardik Vyas in Bengaluru, editing by Ed Osmond)
