Grigor Dimitrov outlasted Marin Cilic 6-7 (3), 6-4, 4-6, 7-6 (2), 6-3 in the longest match so far at this year's French Open, which lasted nearly 4+ hours.

"Every win that I have now, I appreciate it," admitted Dimitrov. "I don't really think of who I'm playing against. I just want to have those wins... It was a very, very important match to me, without a doubt, though. Clearly I have struggled the past two, three months. The shoulder hasn't been great. So a lot of moving parts. A lot of changes overall. I feel great, and I'm very, so to speak, focused and excited for what's ahead."

Novak Djokovic reached the semifinals of the Madrid Open on Friday after Marin Cilic withdrew because of food poisoning.

Cilic had three-set wins in his first three matches in Madrid. He saved four match points in the opener against Martin Klizan, then beat Jan-Lennard Struff and Laslo Djere.

Djokovic was coming off comfortable two-set victories in his first two matches. He will next face either Roger Federer or Dominic Thiem.

Marin Cilic showed no ill effects from his grueling, late-night victory two nights ago as the Croatian seventh seed beat David Goffin 7-6(6) 6-2 6-4 on Monday to reach the U.S. Open quarter-finals.

Former champion Cilic, who rallied back from a two-set deficit to clinch a four-hour, third round match that ended after 2:00 a.m. local time, made a sluggish start against the 10th-seeded Goffin but had enough gas in the tank to advance.

Marin Cilic battle past Alex de Minaur 4-6 3-6 6-3 6-4 7-5 to advance at the U.S. Open on Saturday.

Cilic may have been justified in expecting an easier pathway past the third round, but De Minaur has already earned a reputation for having an abundance of fighting spirit in his relatively short career.

De Minaur started on the front foot, running down everything Cilic sent over the net to carve out a 2-0 lead.

Cilic rallied behind his big serve but De Minaur made the Croatian work hard for every point all the way to the bitter end at 2.22 a.m. local time (0622 GMT), only a few minutes short of the latest ever finish at the U.S. Open.

Marin Cilic talks to the media after his 6-3, 6-1, 4-6, 6-7, 5-7 second round defeat to Guido Pella

Q. Can you explain what happened? Yesterday you were dominating, today completely different.
MARIN CILIC: Yeah, yesterday I played really good. Played great two sets. It was a little bit unfortunate to stop last night when I wasa break down. And also when we came back the court was also very slippery. I lost there my serve.

Today obviously he won that third set. In the fourth, I just was struggling a little bit to find the rhythm off the ground. I was missing some balls. We exchanged two breaks during the set. I had even a mini break in the tiebreak, 2-Love, lost it.

Q. It was hot out there.
MARIN CILIC: It was.

Q. How did you find dealing with the heat? Is this the hottest you've played certainly in London at Wimbledon?
MARIN CILIC: I'm dealing all right with the heat because it's quite dry. Usually the points are not too long, so it doesn't bother us much. I usually like to play on heat. I'm not sure if it's one of the hottest but last week was also quite hot. Week before, as well.

It's been really great summer, so enjoying it, and I hope it stays like this.
