Roland Garros, Day 5, Schedule

In spite of adversity and continued postponement of the games due to weather conditions, the top clay tournament continues with fascinating struggles and great interest.

Around 15:00 greek time, Stefanos Tsitsipas is expected to return to Court 18 in order to continue his fight against Dominic Thiem. The Austrian is ahead with 2-1 sets but the Greek champion showed yesterday that he is very competitive and hopes for a comeback.


For their second game in the tournament, the King of Clay, Rafael Nadal, will return to the courts, facing Argentinean Guido Pella at 17:00 Greek time, as well as WTA Queen Serena Williams.
