The Polish juniors had a good grip ahead of the French Open. A few days ago they were competing in Bytom, where in the first division event they reached the semi-finals. The best player in the world flew to Paris, which is why the bar was raised.

Already in the first round, the fate of Maks Kaśnikowski was associated with Jacek Pinnington Jones, ranked from the “four”. Pole had problems in every set, but he made up for a breakthrough. In the opening match he won five runs of 1:3, and in the second he returned with 2:4. Our tennis player presented a surprise by beating the Briton 6:3, 6:4.

Alexander Orlikovsky had a difficult task. In the first stage stood in his way Hamad Majidovic, who had just made his round debut at the Novak Djokovic Academy in Belgrade (he lost in the first round to later finalist Alex Mulcan). On Monday, the Serb did not break once and tried to get a break twice. After two hundred fights he defeated Pole 7:5, 6:3.

On Tuesday, Kainkowski will face Hong Kong player Chuck Lam Coleman Wong. He will also play in the doubles tournament, which he joined with Orlikovsky. The opponents of the Poles are the French Gabriel Debrow and Antoine Giboudo, who will receive a wild card.
