Tsonga, Cornet, Gaston: five reasons to follow the day at Roland-Garros this Tuesday

#Tsonga #Cornet #Gaston #reasons #follow #day #RolandGarros #Tuesday

La der de Tsonga, the 18th appearance of Alizé Cornet or the return of Hugo Gaston, with a very tight schedule for the twelve Blues in contention. The games you can not miss this Tuesday.

For Alizé Cornet and her 18th appearance at Roland-Garros

At 32, the Frenchwoman is an example of longevity. The niçoise, who has six titles to her credit, is lining up for the 18th time in the tournament and will be taking part in her 61st consecutive Grand Slam tournament! An incredible regularity that allowed her to take the honors of the programming on the Philippe-Chatrier court at the beginning of the day, against the Japanese Misaki Doi, player 98 in the world while the Habs remain in 40th place.

To attend, perhaps, the last game of Tsonga

The Frenchman will continue to be the center of attention this Tuesday on Center Court as after Alizé Cornet, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga will face the heavyweights against Norwegian Casper Ruud, author of an excellent start to the season and very comfortable on the gravel whipped Winner of the Geneva tournament last weekend, the Scandinavian (8th player in the world) is a big favorite against Manceau, who dropped to 297th place and will definitely give up his racket just after the Paris tournament. The Parisian public will pay him a beautiful tribute, whatever the outcome of the match. Gilles Simón, who will stop doing so at the end of the year, will oppose Pablo Carreño-Busta. A great challenge for his last Roland-Garros.

To vibrate to the rhythm of Hugo Gaston’s drop shots

Eighth-place finisher and sensation at Roland-Garros in 2020, Hugo Gaston inherited a bone for his entry into the tournament. The Toulouse native had a difficult preparation for the Paris match with a hand injury in the Round of 16 of the Munich tournament at the end of April. Since then he has chained three defeats in the first round, in Madrid, Bordeaux and Lyon. It is true that Alex de Minaur is not a big fan of the ocher earth, but the obstacle facing the 20th player in the world will continue to be very difficult to overcome. Unless the 74th player in the world finds the magic of his write-offs from two years ago…

To discover the Danish Nugget Rune in front of Shapovalov

Fans of beautiful tennis will have an appointment at the opening of the day on court n°12. See Denis Shapovalov, first and foremost, a magnificent southpaw capable of dazzling when he is on a good day. But also for his opponent, Holger Rune. 40th player in the world and a new nugget of Danish tennis. At just 19 years old, Rune caused a sensation a few days ago by crushing Alexander Zverev in front of his home crowd in Munich (6-2, 6-3 in 1:34) before winning his first title in the final taking advantage of the Injury by Van de Zandschulp. Former world number 1, he won the Roland-Garros tournament in 2019 as a junior, at the age of 16. Clay suits her. He could be one of the surprises of the fortnight.

Follow the fragile Caroline García, without pressure in Paris

The Frenchwoman arrives in the unknown in Paris, without having been able to play the slightest preparation match on clay due to an inflammation of the plantar aponeurosis that deprived her of the courts for more than two months. 71Y A world player, the Saint-Germain-en-Laye native has often faltered in Paris, crushed by the pressure on her shoulders. Porte d’Auteuil, she will have nothing to lose this year. Her first round against American Taylor Townsend (342Y world player) seems affordable on paper, even for an athlete who lacks orientation on the surface.
