Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Gilles Simon will they bow out this Tuesday? For the third day of Roland-Garros 2022, the two French tennis players who have marked their discipline over the past 15 years are preparing to play big matches against very good opponents. This is first the case of “Jo”, ex-5th in the world, who will challenge the Norwegian Casper Ruud, seeded 8, in the second rotation on the center court Philippe-Chatrier. At the end of the day, Gilles Simon, 6th at his best, will be opposed to the Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta, seeded 16, for his last edition of the French Open.
Among the ladies, Alizé Cornet, the highest ranked Tricolor in the singles tables, starts her 2022 edition on the center against the Japanese Misaki Doi. During this third day, the outsiders will enter the track on the men’s side. The Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas, world number 4 and outgoing finalist of Roland-Garros, launches his Paris fortnight on Tuesday evening, while world number 2 Daniil Medvedev will take his first steps at 11 a.m. on the Suzanne-Lenglen court.
