Up to nine sets are played in two matches. Stefanos Tsitsipas certainly did not expect that reaching the third round of the 2022 Roland Garros would cost him so much health. After making up for his 0-2 loss to Lorenzo Mossetti on Tuesday, he had another tough fight on Thursday. In the match 1/32 of the final he defeated qualifier Zdenek Kolar 6:3, 7:6 (8), 6:7 (3), 7:6 (7) after four hours and six minutes of fighting.

– It was driving me crazy. It was really frustrating. He put all his strength into every game. It was a great effort and I want to congratulate him – he said in the post-match interview of the Greek player in fourth place on the field, who reached the final last year in Paris.

Tsitsipas, who sent 25 aces on Thursday, led three breaks and scored 67 goals, facing Mikael Ymir in the next stage of the tournament. Swede Daniel Evans was sent off with the number “29”.

Andrei Rublev made eight aces, four breaks, 30 winning matches, and after about two and a half hours into the match he defeated Federico Delbonis 6:3, 3:6, 6:2, 6:3. In the third round a tennis player from Moscow will play the tournament “Seven” with Christian Garin. The Chilean also needed four matches to deal with Ilya Ivachka.

Another young competitor, 20-year-old Yannick Sener, also lost to SETA on Thursday. Ranked at number 11, the Italian won 3:6, 6:4, 6:4, 6:3 with Roberto Karballes after three hours and 44 minutes. His next challenger will be Mackenzie MacDonald.

Wild card holder Jill Simon brought joy to the local public and at the court. Turns out Philippe Chatrier is better than Steve Johnson. For the French, this is the 500th match he has won in his career. The 36-year-old will fight for the next win with Marin Cilic, the “20” tournament.
