Roland-Garros 2024: Garcia, Gasquet and Moutet qualified, Alcaraz expeditious, disillusionment for Humbert…. What to remember from the 1st day

The first day of Roland-Garros took place yesterday, Sunday May 26, 2024.

This Sunday, May 26, took place the first day of the 2024 edition of the Roland-Garros tournament. And the tricolor clan has already experienced a big disillusionment with the elimination of the French number one, Ugo Humbert (17th in the world) against the Italian Lorenzo Sonego in four sets (6-4, 2-6, 6-4 , 6-3).

Her counterpart among the women, Caroline Garcia (23rd in the world), won in three sets against German qualifier Eva Lys, 143rd in the world (4-6, 7-5, 6-2). The Frenchwoman will try to advance to the second round for the first time since the 2020 edition, facing Sofia Kenin, finalist at Roland-Garros the same year.

For his part, Richard Gasquet made the Suzanne-Lenglen court vibrate by winning in three sets against Borna Coric (7-6 [7-5]7-6 [7-2]6-4).

This first day was rather successful for the French. Chloé Paquet, 136th in the world, easily disposed of 47th in the world Diana Shnaider, 6-3, 6-1. Alexandre Müller continued his good momentum in Rome, with a victory in three sets against Luca Nardi (6-4, 6-1, 6-3). At the end of the evening, on a white-hot Simonne-Mathieu court, Corentin Moutet put in a great performance by taking out Nicolas Jarry, 19th in the world, in four very convincing sets (6-2, 6-1, 3-6, 6- 0). He will challenge Alexander Shevchenko or Aslan Karatsev in the next round.

The young Térence Atmane (22 years old, 121st in the world) on the other hand collapsed against Daniel Altmaier after having pocketed the first two sets (3-6, 4-6, 7-6, 6-2, 7-5) .

Among the tournament favorites, no missteps! The Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz, seeded number 3, was expeditious, disposing of the lucky loser Jeffrey Wolf (6-1, 6-2, 6-1).

On the other hand, Andrey Rublev (n°6) had a harder time over his opponent Taro Daniel (6-2, 6-7 [7-3], 6-3, 7-5). For his part, the 8th in the world, Hubert Hurkacz eliminated Shintaro Mochizuki, 162nd in the world, after losing two sets to him (4-6, 6-3, 3-6, 6-0, 6-3).

Finally, the Japanese player Naomi Osaka, who did not play all of last year due to her pregnancy, rediscovered the taste of victory at Roland-Garros, which she had not experienced since 2021 (forfeit at 2nd round). She dismissed the Italian Lucia Bronzetti in three sets (1-6, 6-4, 7-5). Also note the victory of Jelena Ostapenko, winner in Paris in 2017 and seeded n°9, won in two sets against Jaqueline Cristian (6-4, 7-5).
