1:20 p.m. : On the Lenglen, Djokovic and Schwartzman will soon arrive. The Serb leads 6-0 in their confrontations BUT their only meeting at Roland-Garros had given rise to a fight of five sets in 2017. And before a potential quarter against Rafa Nadal, it will be necessary to save the max.
1:17 p.m .: LEYLAH FERNANDEZ DEBREAKE WHILE ANISIMOVA SERVED FOR THE SET!!!
1:15 p.m. : We return to the Simonne-Mathieu to follow our French women. Kiki and Caro no longer have their break in advance, but they lead 4-3.
1:11 p.m. : Trevisan had already reached the quarters at Roland-Garros in 2020, before falling to Iga Swiatek. This time, the Italian will challenge either Leylah Fernandez or Amanda Anisimova, who may be about to embark on a third set…
1:07 p.m.: Done! Trevisan wins 7-6, 7-5 and goes to the quarter-finals!
1:05 p.m. : Sasnovich sends his backhand behind the baseline… Trevisan match point!
1:02 p.m. : Third consecutive game for Martina Trevisan. The Italian now leads 6-5, serve to follow… It smells like the end?
12:59 : Sarah Rakotomanga lost the first set 6-3… but made the entry break in the second. TURN ME THIS SHORT N°9 INTO A CAULDRON!!!
12:55 p.m .: THE ROCKER!!! LET’S GO ON FRANCE 3!!!
12:54 p.m. : Trevisan unbreaks Sasnovich, who served for the set! The Italian returns to 5-4 as we slowly approach the two-hour mark.
12:48 : Who said that there were no more French people at Roland-Garros? Jenny Lim, 17, is also on the track on court n°13 against the Czech Struplova. 1-1 currently.
12:44 p.m. : Les Bleues are not there to string pearls. 2-0 for Garcia / Mladenovic on the Simonne-Mathieu.
12:42 p.m .: Leylah Fernandez sets foot in the quarter-finals! Anisimova struggled, but the Canadian pocketed the first set 6-3. As in the previous round, the American will have to run behind the score.
12:40 p.m. : And a fourth, with a powerful forehand!
12:39 p.m .: Amanda Anisimova dismisses three set points on her opponent’s service! Then maybe…
12:35 p.m. : Blue on court n°9: Sarah Rakotomanga, who benefits from a wild card in the girls’ singles table, is hard at work against the American Blokhina. ALLLEEEZZZZZZ
12:32 p.m. : Among the juniors, it goes for William Jucha. The Frenchman took out Van Schalkwyk 7-6, 6-2. We start the day very well.
12:28 : On the Simonne-Mathieu, it’s already folded for Granollers and Zeballos, winners 6-1, 6-1. Caroline Garcia and Kristina Mladenovic will be able to enter the arena!
12:26 p.m. : The American enters her match after a quarter of an hour in the fog. She clears a first break and comes back to 4-1.
12:24 p.m. : On the Chatrier, it scrolls! 4-0 for Leylah Fernandez, Anisimova does not exist at the moment.
12:21 p.m .: The fifth set point is the good one! Sasnovich commits the fault and Trevisan takes the first set after 1h13.
12:19 p.m. : Still missed for Trevisan! 10-10 in this endless tie-break.
12:14 p.m. : The Italian spoils by sending the ball in turn into the net… We have already been playing for almost 1h10.
12:13 p.m. : Sasnovich sends his forehand into the net, Trevisan gets a second set point.
12:11 p.m. : 6-6 on the Lenglen in the number of games, and 6-6 in the tie-break. IT’S STRAINED
11:52 : Well, it starts nicely on this Sunday morning but when it really starts there it’s going to be on fire. This little Djoko-Schwartzman in particular who promises to be, yum yum.
11:34 am : 4-0 now for Granollers and Zeballos who, as a reminder, eliminated two French pairs in the two previous rounds, Humbert/Lestienne then Mannarino/Olivetti.
11:31 a.m. : Sasnovich had to face break points again, but she hung on and picked it up at 3-3.
11:27 : Small hook by Simonne-Mathieu to see that the pair Granollers / Zeballos already leads 3-0.
11:24 : And redebreak it! We can go on like this for a long time…
11:18 a.m. : And unbreak it! We start on a good basis.
11:16 a.m. : Break Trevisan, already!
11:14 a.m. : We’ll talk about it when the time comes, but it also works for kids, in girls’ singles and in boys’ singles. We will notably find Gabriel Debru, who had shown great things during the qualifiers for the men’s singles.
11:10 a.m .: Speaking of doubles, we have French people left! Caroline Garcia and Kiki Mladenovic will play in match 2 on the Simonne-Mathieu against the pair Doi / Tomljanovic. Immediately after, Clara Burel and Hugon Gaston will take the baton for the 2nd round of the mixed doubles.
Granollers/Zeballos – O’Mara/Withrow
Matos/Vega – Gille/Vliegen
Puetz/Venus – Arevalo/Rojer
Mcnally/Zhang – Kostyuk/Ruse
11:05 a.m. : And while waiting for the start of the Chatrier program (from 12 p.m., with Fernandez – Anisimova), we also have a double to eat!
11:02 : The first round of 16 of the day, therefore: Martina Trevisan vs Aliaksandra Sasnovich. The Italian is quite impressive, three wins in straight sets, only 14 games left on the way. But his opponent brought down Raducanu and Kerber, sorry. Difficult match to read, but I would put a penny on Martina (it’s worth what it’s worth).
Novak Djokovic will face Diego Schwartzman, seeded n°15, to raise the cursor a little more before a possible quarter-final against Nadal. In the women’s draw, the young Leylah Fernandez (19) and Coco Gauff (18) will try to continue to fine their elders.
“Are you already licking your chops? We’ll be there at 11 a.m.!
