Zverev, whose previous Grand Slam best was reaching the fourth round at Wimbledon past year, said he spends up to four hours each day working on weights and fitness in the gym. In all three of his five-setters at Roland Garros he has trailed 2-1 in sets.
With the win, Zverev ended his wait for a maiden Major last-eight appearance at his 12th attempt.
