Sinner advances easily in the 2nd round

World No.2 Jannik Sinner, candidate for the title at Roland-Garros, but hampered in recent weeks by a hip injury, reassured himself by qualifying for the 2nd round by easily beating 6-3, 6-3 , 6-4 the American Christopher Eubanks (46th), Monday. “I’m happy to be back on a course after my injury, here it’s a special tournament for me because it’s the first time I reached the quarter-finals of a Grand Slam,” commented the 22-year-old Italian. “My hip is fine, but I’m taking the matches one by one. I’m not in top form yet but I’m working on it every day,” he added. His next opponent will be the French veteran Richard Gasquet (124th), fifteen years his senior, winner the day before of the Croatian Borna Coric.

Jabeur succeeds in his entry

Ons Jabeur, 9th in the world, held her place against the American Sachia Vickery, 124th and beneficiary of a wild card, whom she dismissed 6-3, 6-2, Monday, in the first round of Roland-Garros. “A first round of a Grand Slam is always difficult. I tried to relax on the court, but I hope it will be better in the next match. There is still a long way to go,” declared the Tunisian, who will face in the second round the Colombian Camila Osorio (77th) or the Ukrainian Anhelina Kalinina (48th).

Nadal-Zverev, 2022 semi-final rematch

For what has every chance of being his last Roland-Garros, Nadal is not protected by the top seed status because of his fall in the rankings (beyond 250th place in the world). He was propelled from the start by the draw against the 27-year-old German, one of the fittest players of the moment, freshly titled at the Masters 1000 in Rome. Find here the analysis of Cédric Pioline, the tennis consultant for Europe 1, official radio of Roland-Garros.

The last time the two men faced each other dates back to the 2022 semi-final: the German pushed the Spaniard to his limits before seriously injuring his right ankle and giving up, leaving Nadal to slip towards his 22nd Grand Slam title.

World number 1 Novak Djokovic will enter the fray on Tuesday, against French guest Pierre-Hugues Herbert. Monday also marks the return of title holder Iga Swiatek, the big favorite to succeed her. Leolia Jeanjean will be condemned to a monumental feat after managing to come out of qualifying, Swiatek arriving with two clay court titles acquired in Madrid and Rome. Finally, Jannik Sinner will face Christopher Eubanks on the Suzanne-Lenglen court. The Italian, in four participations, reached his best result – a quarter-final – in 2020.
