Begu beat John 6-1 6-4

Hello? Hello ! Jeanjean arrives at 0-30 on Begu’s serve. A tumultuous noise greets this glimmer of hope, only for Begu to get to 15-30 with a smash. Then Jeanjean goes over a baseline shot to put it up 30-30. Then, a bunt allows him to smash a winner home to land a match point. A short exchange ends with Jeanjean passing on the line. The French resistance, uh, is coming to an end and showing up a bit too late to stop Begu.

Swiatek meanwhile blasted their service game at home, to lead 3-1, with Kovininc holding serve.

Begu does not allow himself being put off by the partisanship around her, with a few fine comebacks taking her to breaking point and a match, only for Jeanjean to revive. Go to hell, loud roars. Even louder roars as Begu goes long to offer a game point. Then Jeanjean claims it for the first time. Begu, having sat down, will have to keep his composure on serve. It’s 5-4 now.

Iga Swiatek, whose two matches so far have arriving under a two-hour collective, doesn’t find it that easy against Kovinic, who ends up getting broken to trail 2-0 in the first set but puts up stern resistance. It took a long time, almost as long as it took to win a set in those opening matches. Kovinic needs to sort out his first serve, but there is a way to get into this game, however dominant the Pole is.

Jeanjean serves to make it 5-2 in the second set. Begu is forced to serve, and with the assent of the French commentators, “the break” arrives – and love – and Jeanjean has signs of life. “Allez les bleus”, also sing the fans.

Jeanjean keeps choking on break points on Begu’s serve, but she’s now playing for her life, hitting a winner down the line to claim another. Begu hits his own winner to level him up. The home crowd is partisan, boisterous for this time of day, although there is a groan when a trademark cushioning gives Begu the lead. Then Jeanjean scores and at 5-1 in the second set, the Romanian is one game away from winning the match.

Begu is now 4-1, and Jeanjean comes out, the glory of her second-round win over Pliskova was swept away. The player who missed six years with a knee injury had made a glorious comeback but now she is struggling. She almost comes back to 4-2, but there is agony as she misses a big winner on a break point.

The first news is not good for the local contingentwith Leolia Jeanjean already watching the barrel of Irina-Camelia Begu’s defeat, she lost the first set 6-1, and is currently on the break and 2-1 to the Romanian.

Tumaini Carayol profiles Carlos Alcaraz, the hottest latest release, and possibly the one that will wipe out the aforementioned old guard. He destroyed Sebastian Korda yesterday.

His vast manual skills and shooting skills are bound by his supreme athleticism and defense, qualities that produced countless incredible points that further underscored his talents. Since his triumph in Madrid, the hype surrounding Alcaraz has gathered pace and he has arrived in Paris named by some bookmakers as the tournament favourite.

The two biggest guns have their tricks did yesterday and we might soon see them fight, albeit a little earlier than usual.


Hello everyone. Back at Roland Garros, here we go, and the stands may well be swollen with Liverpool and Real Madrid fans reaping some feedback ahead of the big one later tonight. Those paying attention on Thursday will recognize most of the cast, with Iga Swiatek, the No. 1 seed, in devastating form so far. Box Danka Kovinic de Montengero stops the Pole’s charge? Leolia Jeanjean became the darling of France by beating Pliskova in the second round, and now she faces Irina-Camelia Beguwhose main highlight so far was throwing a racket that made a small child cry. Qinwen Zhengthe Chinese player, delivered one of the shocks of the tournament by beating Simona Halep, even allowing Halep’s panic attacks, and Zheng will face Nice Alize Cornet.

In today’s gentlemen’s singles, and the headliners are Gilles Simonthe oldest man in the tournament, who faces Marin Cilicand Daniel Medvedevthe Russian always gallant on clay, who faces the young Serb, Miomir Kecmanovic. Mikael Ymerthe Swede, who beat the brave Briton Dan Evans, will face Stefanos Tsitsipasthe Greek another who doesn’t look quite comfortable on the surface.

All this and more throughout the day.

Get ready for some weekend action! 🇵🇱 #1 @iga_swiatek kicks off Chatrier on a Saturday filled with French fire🔥
