As Roger Federer continues to make smooth progress in the serene half of the draw, that draw of death is slowly getting to the exciting part, with Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray all looking to seal a place in the fourth round of the French Open 2015 on Saturday.

Neither of the superstar trio have really been tested so far, but their respective third round matches could prove tricky ones, particularly for Djokovic, who plays Australian teenager Thanasi Kokkinakis, fresh from his tremendous five-set win over compatriot Bernard Tomic.

Down two sets to love, the player nicknamed "The Kokk" produced some brilliant moments of tennis to belie his years and topple his more experienced compatriot.

"I was going mental in the first two sets when I couldn't take a break point," Kokkinakis said after the win. "I don't know what my conversion rate was, but it was driving me insane. Every time I didn't take a break point it was like someone shot an arrow to me. I can't even explain how berserk I was going.

"At one point I said, 'Get me off the court'. Luckily I didn't. I was trying to tell myself when I was two sets to love down that I had a lot of chances in those two sets. Just keep pushing.

"I trust my game in the big moments when I need it. I kept hanging in there. I felt like I was in better physical shape than he is. I trusted my fitness and it paid off."

The reward for that fabulous victory is a match against the best player in the world and the man who is in the form of his life – Djokovic. The Serbian world number one looks near unbeatable at the moment, but Djokovic will be wary of coming up against a young upstart who has absolutely nothing to lose in this French Open third round match and can throw absolutely everything at picking up the biggest win of his career.

Andy Murray will also play an Australian in the shape of Nick Kyrgios, who famously beat Nadal at Wimbledon last year.

Murray, looking as good as he has done on the clay courts this season, was given a stern test by Joao Sousa in the second round, and Kyrgios, seeded 29, is expected to pose a more difficult challenge.

"For a lot of the match I played very well," Murray told BBC Sport after his four-set 6-2, 4-6, 6-4, 6-1 win over Sousa. "I didn't really help myself in the second set. I served badly, which made it difficult.

"Then at the end of that second set he was able to dictate a lot of the points, and he played very well at the beginning of the third set and had some chances there as well.

"I was happy with the way I was able to turn it around and make some adjustments out there on the court, which turned the match in my favour."

The last of the three men's singles superstars – Nadal – will play Andrey Kuznetsov of Russia. While Nadal has not been at his best so far this year, not by a long way, the Spaniard should have enough weapons to see off the Russian.

Serena Williams, in the women's singles, continues the blockbuster Saturday with a mouth-watering clash over Victoria Azarenka, the former two-time Australian Open champion and 27th seed, while Richard Gasquet vs Kevin Anderson should also be one to watch.
