Novak Djokovic v Diego Schwartzman live update: follow all the action live
Djokovic had seen off Marcel Granollers and Joao Sousa already this week and was looking for his third scalp to send him into the fourth round of the French Open.
He will now face the winner of Lucas Pouille and Albert Ramos Vinolas, having come through a stern test in the third round.
Djokovic will have seen bits of Rafael Nadal winning in imperious form earlier today knowing they could meet at the quarter-final stage.
But the Serb was unable to replicate the Spaniard's 90-minute win, spending more than three hours on court.

French Open 2017 LIVE: Novak Djokovic v Diego Schwartzman latest updates
NOVAK DJOKOVIC WINS 5-7, 6-5, 3-6, 6-1, 6-1: Well it was a thriller and it's a shame that Schwartzman faded so badly and so quickly. He deserved more of a fifth set.
However, Djokovic is applauding his opponent and rightly so. What a game of tennis.
Djokovic 5-7, 6-5, 3-6, 6-1, 5-1 Schwartzman*: I would like to say the towel hasn't gone in but it's not far off. Djokovic holds to 15
Medical timeout: This is just Schwartzman's 18th career Grand Slam match (Djokovic played 23 last year alone) and that is starting to tell. The Argentinian has the trainer out to work on his lower back and while he is back on his feet now, he is going to need something special.
*Djokovic 5-7, 6-5, 3-6, 6-1, 4-1 Schwartzman: Oh the writing is on the wall now. Schwartzman looks tight as anything and he can only find the net when down break point.
Djokovic lets out a long, loud roar as he secures the double break which will surely see him through to the fourth round.

Djokovic 5-7, 6-5, 3-6, 6-1, 3-1 Schwartzman*: The Djokovic fist is being held high as he makes it 30-15 with a forehand volley winner. The hold soon follows and this is looking more and more like the Serb's match to lose.
*Djokovic 5-7, 6-5, 3-6, 6-1, 2-1 Schwartzman: If Schwartzman ever needed his serve to stand up, it's now. He gets himself to 40-0 but then double-faults again, a problem that has been emerging at crucial times. The next point is his and he stays in touch but there are ominous signs in this match.
Djokovic 5-7, 6-5, 3-6, 6-1, 2-0 Schwartzman*: Agassi might relax a little more now, although that game probably worked the heart rate a bit. An unforced error at game point allows Schwartzman to force deuce but Djokovic manages to consolidate his break.
*Djokovic 5-7, 6-5, 3-6, 6-1, 1-0 Schwartzman: That is not the start to the fifth set in his first ever Grand Slam third round Diego Schwarzman would have planned and he going to have to play from behind in the decider.
Matthew Dunn is worried for Schwartzman
"Big ask of the little guy now. 5ft 7in Schwartzman is beginning to wilt under the ire of Djokovic, angry at two separate code violations called against him for time-wasting and misconduct at the end of the previous set.
"Unlike Murray, when Djokovic does angry, it is a cool, seething anger and quickly earned him two break points.
"He converts the second and I fear that is it, although Agassi still has the same anxious expression on his face."
Novak Djokovic found himself at loggerheads with the umpire in the fourth set
Djokovic 5-7, 6-5, 3-6, 6-1 Schwartzman*: Eight straight points and Djokovic has levelled the match once again.
The momentum is with the Serb but Schwartzman may have been saving crucial energy in the latter part of that set, steeling himself for the all-important fifth.
*Djokovic 5-7, 6-5, 3-6, 5-1 Schwartzman: Broken. To love. Djokovic is pumped up here. He will serve to take the match into a fifth.
Djokovic 5-7, 6-5, 3-6, 4-1 Schwartzman*: This is getting tasty again! Just when Djokovic looks in control, he loses his grip again.
From 30-0 up he finds himself advantage down and warned by the umpire for aiming a ball in his direction. He didn't hit it, just feigned too, and he is livid at being warned. There is a long conversation between the two and Djokovic loses the next point.
Maybe Schwartzman will pounce now?
*Djokovic 5-7, 6-5, 3-6, 4-0 Schwartzman: This set is slipping away very quickly and Djokovic has a look of steely determination that should be a warning sign to any opponent.
*Djokovic 5-7, 6-5, 3-6, 3-0 Schwartzman: It's taken just 10 minutes for Schwartzman to go from the elation of winning the third set to finiding himself 3-0 down in the fourth. You can't let yourself slip against Novak Djokovic. He's too good.
*Djokovic 5-7, 6-5, 3-6, 2-0 Schwartzman: That is exactly what Djokovic needed. Schwartzman had 40-0 but buckled under the pressure, double-faulting at deuce and allowing Djokovic to pounce.
Express Sport's tennis writer Matthew Dunn says:
"Some very deep shots by Djokovic which Schwartzman clearly felt were teetering on the verge of being out.
"An important break by the Serb, but these are fine, fine margins."
Djokovic 5-7, 6-5, 3-6, 1-0 Schwartzman*: It's all very well cruising through your service games at the beginning of the set but if you're not able to do it throughout, it's not that helpful. Hold to 15 but he still trails on the big scoreboard.
*Djokovic 5-7, 6-3, 3-6 Schwartzman: So much drama. Djokovic opens up three break-back points in double time but Schwartzman, scrapping like his life depends on it, pulls it back to deuce and saves another one at advantage Djokovic for good measure.
Schwartzman's first set point went away when he went for a death-or-glory forehand but the second one is good as Djokovic misses the return!
Djokovic 5-7, 6-3, 3-5 Schwartzman*: Three break points at the crucial stage of the set and the pressure is right on Djokovic now! He saves the first one in at the net and then a brilliant, dramatic rally sees Schwartzman clip the net twice before finally taking too much tape.
But the third is too many for Djokovic and Schwartzman will serve for the third!
*Djokovic 5-7, 6-3, 3-4 Schwartzman: The pressure comes on in the eighth game, so often the crucial one in a set, but Schwartzman comes through from 30-30. This is getting tense.
Djokovic 5-7, 6-3, 3-3 Schwartzman*: There have, unfortunately, been too many unforced errors from Schwartzman in this set. The only fortunate thing for the Argentinian is that most have come on Djokovic's serve and once again the Serb holds to 15.
*Djokovic 5-7, 6-3, 2-3 Schwartzman: The Argentinian holds without too much discomfort but is now calling for the trainer. It doesn't appear to be for any particular injury though – just completely redo the heavy strapping on his wrist.
He seems more than happy to carry on.
Djokovic 5-7, 6-3, 2-2 Schwartzman*: Djokovic's dominance on his serve continues, even after Schwartzman takes the first point of the game. Holds to 15.
*Djokovic 5-7, 6-3, 1-2 Schwartzman: The more Djokovic desperately wants the French Open crowd to love him, the less they do. The Serb smashes up a racket after missing a forehand and is promptly booed for taking his time getting a new one.
The champion shakes his head, as though he doesn't deserve it. Schwartzman meanwhile is continuing to battle him from the baseline and wins out.
Djokovic 5-7, 6-3, 1-1 Schwartzman*: As if to back up my point, Djokovic holds to love.
*Djokovic 5-7, 6-3, 0-1 Schwartzman: By the way, Djokovic ended that set with a 90 per cent success rate on points where he got his first serve in, with an 83 per cent first serve percentage. That is unreal.
What Schwartzman wouldn't give for those numbers – but he holds at the beginning of the third set. He hasn't served an ace since the first incidentally and probably would like to change that.
Djokovic 5-7, 6-3 Schwartzman*: There it is and in stunning fashion too. At 30-0, Schwartzman thinks his desperate backhand pass is good but Djokovic produces an unreal get at the net, his forehand volley dropping on the other side and drawing a tap of the racket from his opponent.
One wide ace later and this match is level again. The rain meanwhile, has abated – for now.
*Djokovic 5-7, 5-3 Schwartzman: Just call me Nostradamus. As predicted, the quick holds from Djokovic have racked up and Schwartzman is broken.
The French Open champion will serve for the match.
Djokovic 5-7, 4-3 Schwartzman*: Djokovic is up to 88 per cent of points won on his first serve in this set – in the first it was at just 63 per cent – and it's causing problems for Schwartzman now. These quick service games will once again pile the pressure on his own serve.
*Djokovic 5-7, 3-3 Schwartzman: The Argentinian makes a rare trip to the net to take himself to 40-15 and then out-rallies Djokovic to seal the game.
He is NOT going to go away.
Djokovic 5-7, 3-2 Schwartzman*: Djokovic is starting to crank his serve up – if this rain delay comes he'd much rather go indoors at one set all.
He serves his third ace and holds to 15.
*Djokovic 5-7, 2-2 Schwartzman: Epic, epic tennis. The sheer commitment of these two players is creating some brilliant points.
At 15-0, he somehow chases down a drop shot before Djokovic chases it down in return and Schwartzman's volley hits the net. The Argentinian holds but this is a right ding-dong battle.
Djokovic 5-7, 2-1 Schwartzman*: The Serb jumps out to 40-0 but allows Schwartzman a sniff with two unforced errors.
However, his power is too much and he ensures the set stays on serve.
*Djokovic 5-7, 1-1 Schwartzman: This is turning into a real grind for both players. That game may only have lasted three-and-a-half minutes but it took a lot out of both players.
These rallies are brutal because both players are terrific 'getters' of the ball.
Djokovic 5-7, 1-0 Schwartzman*: Djokovic moves on from what he will consider a set-long blip and holds swiftly to love.
Mladenovic by the way, is through in three sets, much to the delight of the French crowd on Suzanne Lenglen.
Diego Schwartzman was in control during the first set
*Djokovic 5-7 Schwartzman: This 24-year-old Argentinian is proving very difficult to shift. He is going toe-to-toe with Djokovic from the baseline and winning.
He brings up two set points but misses out on the first one leaking long before the Serb gets all over his second serve to force deuce.
Set point No3 sees the defending champion find another brilliant backhand down the line and it is the fifth one that Schwartzman converts to take an unexpected lead!
Djokovic 5-6 Schwartzman*: Djokovic is broken! For the second time in the set, he has lost his serve.
And not just lost but it's gone to love. Schwartzman will serve for the set.
*Djokovic 5-5 Schwartzman: A double-fault at 40-15 looked like it might trigger a wobble from the Argentinian but Djokovic sends a backhand out to let the game go.
Djokovic 5-4 Schwartzman*: A poor game from Schwartzman after a run of good ones – he produces three consecutive unforced errors to allow Djokovic to hold to love.
*Djokovic 4-4 Schwartzman: The 24-year-old consolidates his break by rallying from 0-30 and holding with four straight points.
Our man Matthew Dunn is out and about on the other courts
"It seems like the whole of France are willing Kristina Mladenovic through on Court Suzanne Lenglen. Shelby Rogers was serving for the set when the home no. 4 seed rattled off 10 points in a row, including a lucky net cord, to level up the match.
"Today was billed as something of a national celebration on Roland Garros’s second court, with Lucas Pouille up next, and Mladenovic nearly pooped the party before it had even got going.
"She points to her forehead as she levels the third-set at 5-5 but Rogers is not about to roll over, however much her opponent focuses."
Djokovic 4-3 Schwartzman*: Game on! Schwartzman looks to have let another opportunity slip as 0-15 and 15-30 becomes 30-30 but he doesn't give up and forces the defending champion into two errors that hand him a break back.
We're on serve again.
*Djokovic 4-2 Schwartzman: Another ace firms up Schwartzman's service game before a Djokovic unforced error allows him to hold.
Djokovic 4-1 Schwartzman*: The trailing Schwartzman gets himself an immediate break-back point but squanders it with a wayward forehand and a couple of big Djokovic winners gets him out of the game.
Rain is imminent and even beginning to fall. We might not be out here much longer although there is a chance it might blow around Roland Garros. The showers are very scattered.
*Djokovic 3-1 Schwartzman: And Djokovic breaks.
That is a cumulative build-up on the serve of Schwartzman who struggled to hold in the first game and then had a very brief respite thanks to Djokovic's speedy hold.
The Serb jumps out to 0-40 and then jumps all over a second serve to take an early lead.
Djokovic 2-1 Schwartzman*: The pressure is straight back on the young Argentinian as Djokovic holds to love.
*Djokovic 1-1 Schwartzman: Not quite so smooth for Schwartzman who is pushed to deuce on his opening service game.
He saves a break point as Djokovic goes long with a backhand and then seals the game with an ace.
Djokovic 1-0 Schwartzman*: A relatively smooth start for the world No2 against his 5ft7 opponent. Drops just the one point.
It's raining a lot to the west of Roland Garros but not on Chatrier at present.
2.10pm: These two have met once before, at the US Open in 2014, when Djokovic breezed through in straight sets and dropped just seven games.
And there is rain in the air by the way. The sun is out at the moment but there are some very dark, threatening clouds around and storms are forecast.
Djokovic to serve first…
2pm: Novak Djokovic v Diego Schwartzman is underway shortly after Rafael Nadal polished off Nikoloz Basilashvili in just 90 minutes for the loss of just one game.
The next match is out on court and will be starting in the next couple of minutes.
