The 4th day at Roland Garros program was full, with the participation of Stephanos Tsitsipas and Maria Sakkari draws the Greek attention.
For the 13th consecutive year, Novak Djokovic qualified for the third round of Roland Garros, who was champion in Paris in 2016. Novak Djokovic celebrated his 61th victory in Roland Garros (61-12), who hadn’t an easy game opposite to the excellent Jaume Munar, but confirmed his title as a favorite.
On Friday he will face another Spanish player, Roberto Bautista Agut, who is in No. 13 on the dashboard.
From this day the emotions weren’t missing, starring Julien Benneteau. The 36-year-old French tennis player returned from set back, won Leonardo Mayer in a 3-hour and 5-minute match and didn’t make it to hold his tears when he met the deposition of thousands of compatriots in the stands.
It was Benneteau’s first win at Roland Garros from 2013 and he made it against a very strong opponent, a soil specialist and five years younger. And not only that, having been lost with a set and a break from Argentinean player, No. 42 on the world rankings.
Benneteau will face in the second round the No. 5 of the board, Juan Martin Del Potro.
Alexander Zverev had to pass from a very difficult test in the second round of Roland Garros. The 21-year-old German player stayed behind twice with a set, but in the end he found the strength to “turn” the match and stay “alive” in the hunt of his first quarter-final in a Grand Slam.
Zverev chases his first participation in a quarter-final Grand Slam event, and if he wins his next game, he will enter in the 16th of a major. He will then face Damir Dzumhur.
