#RolandGarros #LIVE #Lets #Djoko #Schwartzman #Tonic #Nadal #AugerAliassime #Live #8th

13:25 : This outburst was not enough for Fernandez. Anisimova breaks again in the next game and takes the second set. So off we go for a 3rd and final set between the two players.

13:20 : In Lenglen, Djokovic and Schwartzman will arrive soon. The Serb leads 6-0 in their meetings BUT their only meeting at Roland-Garros had led to a five-set fight in 2017. And facing a potential fourth against Rafa Nadal, the maximum will have to be saved.


13:15 : We return to the Simonne-Mathieu to follow our French. Kiki and Caro no longer have their break ahead, but lead 4-3.

13:11 : Trevisan had already reached the quarterfinals 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…

13:07: Ready! Trevisan wins 7-6, 7-5 and goes through to the quarterfinals!

13:05 : Sasnovich sends his backhand behind the baseline…Trevisan match point!

13:02 : Third consecutive match for Martina Trevisan. The Italian now leads 6-5, serve to continue… Does it smell like a final?

12:59 : Sarah Rakotomanga lost the first set 6-3… but made the inning break in the second. TURN ME THIS SHORT N°9 INTO A CAULDRON!!!

12:55 p.m.: THE ROCKER!!! LET’S GO TO FRANCE 3!!!

12:54 : Trevisan unties Sasnovich, who served for the set! The Italian is back at 5-4 as we slowly approach the two hour mark.

12:48 : Who said there were no French at Roland-Garros anymore? Jenny Lim, 17, is also on court on Court 13 against the Czech Struplova. 1-1 currently.

12:44 : Les Bleues are not for stringing pearls. 2-0 for García/Mladenovic in the Simonne-Mathieu.

12:42 pm: Leylah Fernández steps into the quarterfinals! Anisimova struggled, but the Canadian took the first set 6-3. As in the previous round, the American must run behind the marker.

12:40 : And a fourth, with a powerful forehand!

12:39 pm: Amanda Anisimova rules out three set points on her opponent’s serve! Then perhaps…

12:35 : Blue on court n°9: Sarah Rakotomanga, who benefits from a wild card in the women’s singles table, is working hard against the American Blokhina. ALLLEEEZZZZZZ

12:32 : Among the juniors, it goes to William Jucha. The Frenchman eliminated Van Schalkwyk 7-6, 6-2. We started the day very well.

12:28 : In the Simonne-Mathieu, it is already doubled for Granollers and Zeballos, winners 6-1, 6-1. Caroline Garcia and Kristina Mladenovic will be able to enter the arena!

12:26 : The American enters her match after a quarter of an hour in the fog. Delete a first break and return to 4-1.

12:24 : In the Chatrier, it moves! 4-0 for Leylah Fernandez, Anisimova does not exist at the moment.

12:21 pm: The fifth set point is the good one! Sasnovich commits the foul and Trevisan takes the first set after 1h13.

12:19 : Still to go for Trevisan! 10-10 in this endless tie-break.

12:14 : The Italian breaks down when he hits the ball into the net… We’ve been playing for almost 1h10 now.

12:13 : Sasnovich sends his forehand into the net, Trevisan earns the second set point.

12:11 : 6-6 in the Lenglen in number of games, and 6-6 in the tie-break. IT’S TENSE

11:57 : A little reading to start this day. Our special envoy to Roland Julien has prepared a nice pap for you before the tonic between Nadal and Auger-Aliassime. Who do you think Uncle Toni will be for between his favorite nephew and his new foal?

11:52 : Well, it starts off great this Sunday morning, but when it really starts, it’s going to be on fire. This particular little Djoko-Schwartzman who promises to be, yum yum.

11:34 a.m. : 4-0 now for Granollers and Zeballos who, as a reminder, eliminated two French pairings in the previous two rounds, Humbert/Lestienne and then Mannarino/Olivetti.

11:31 : Sasnovich had to face break points again, but hung on and picked it up at 3-3.

11:27 : Small hook from Simonne-Mathieu to see that the Granollers/Zeballos duo already win 3-0.

11:24 : And break it again! We can go on like this for a long time…

11:18 : And get rid of him! We started on a good foundation.

11:16 : Break Trevisan, now!

11:14 : We’ll talk about it when the time comes, but it also works for children, in girls’ singles and in boys’ singles. We will highlight Gabriel Debru, who had shown great things during the men’s singles heats.

11:10am: Speaking of doubles, we’ve got Frenchies left! Caroline Garcia and Kiki Mladenovic will play match 2 at the Simonne-Mathieu against the Doi/Tomljanovic couple. Immediately afterwards, Clara Burel and Hugon Gaston will take the baton for the 2nd day of mixed doubles.

11:08 : In detail, it looks like this:

Granollers/Zeballos – O’Mara/Retiro

Matos/Vega – Gille/Vliegen

Puetz/Venus – Arevalo/Rojer

Mcnally/Zhang – Kostyuk/Russian

11:05 : And while we wait for the start of the Chatrier program (from 12, with Fernandez – Anisimova), we also have 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 straight set wins, only 14 games left on the road. But his opponent took down Raducanu and Kerber, sorry. Hard match to read, but I’d put a dime on Martina (she’s worth what she’s worth).

Yooooo!!! How are you guys? Today is Sunday, so it is the day of the gentlemen at Roland-Garros. With a program, beetles do not bite. Following his outing to the Stade de France, Rafa Nadal returns to earth to challenge No.9 seed Felix Auger-Aliassime. Two other Spaniards have something to play for, either Carlos Alcaraz, favorite against Karen Khachanov, or Bernabé Zapata Miralles, who can dream of knocking down a half-fig-half-grape Alexander Zverev in Paris.

Novak Djokovic will face Diego Schwartzman, the 15th seed, to move the cursor a little higher ahead of a possible quarter-final against Nadal. In the women’s draw, the young Leylah Fernandez (19) and Coco Gauff (18) will try to continue fining their elders.

“Are you already licking your chops? We will be there at 11 am!
