Roland-Garros: Nadal expeditious, Thiem passes, Azarenka and Paire out… what to remember from the 4th day

2020-09-30T17:08:46.084Z

Injured, Serena Williams has already set sail. Among the men, the favorites stay the course ...



The fourth day of Roland Garros, delayed by the rain, began with a little thunder with the package on injury from Serena Williams.

Nadal or Thiem, they had fewer worries ...

The star

Rafael Nadal

.

The pun is easy, but the world No. 2 has made short work of the American McDonald (6-1, 6-0, 6-3 in 1:40).

A little practice gallop for the Spaniard who quietly settles the sights over the first laps.

“Today, it was not so cold, summarizes the Mallorcan.

It was a good thing.

The conditions weren't that bad… ”

Mackenzie McDonald tries a spoon service, Nadal tastes it like a sundae.

French

Benoît Paire.

Arrived in Paris after an incredible preparation, the Avignon resident did not have huge ambitions on his tournament.

Faced with the solid Argentinian Federico Coria, little brother of the former Roland-Garros finalist, his goodwill was not enough.

Irregular, the Frenchman has multiplied unforced errors.

The South American, 99th in the world, won in four sets (7-6, 4-6, 6-3, 6-1).

Pair will not be unhappy to finally come home ...

The perf

Sebastian Korda

.

This time for sure, damn it could not lie.

Out of the qualifications, the son of the former champion and hair genius Petr Korda paid the scalp of the American John Isner (No. 21) in four sets (6-4, 6-4, 2-6, 6 -4).

His fifth consecutive victory on the courts of Porte d'Auteuil.

The belly

Victoria Azarenka

.

The Belarusian, finalist of the last US Open, will have fizzled out in Paris.

After cursing the temperature in the first round, the No. 10 seed took a big chill against Slovakia Schmiedlova (6-2, 6-2).

😱 Thunderclap in the female table!

The number

140.

By beating Jack Sock (6-1, 6-1, 7/6 (8/6)), Dominic Thiem signed the 140th victory of his career on clay.

The Austrian, Roland-Garros finalist for the past two years and recent winner of the US Open, had to dismiss three set points.

The phrase

“I heard the plane.

It even worried me a little… ”

Elina Svitolina

was in the middle of a match against the Mexican Zarazua (6-3, 0-6, 6-2) when a fighter plane broke the sound barrier in the Parisian sky.

“I said to myself:

Damn, something has happened

, says Gaël Monfils' partner.

I looked at the chair judge, the referee, he was also a little shocked.

Strange noise and very loud noise, as if something huge had fallen.

The image

Sara Errani.

It's no secret that the Italian has big, big, big serving problems.

Last year, she even committed 127 double faults in her ten games played on the WTA Tour.

Or the equivalent of 31 sets of services taken off.

So much so that she sometimes decides to serve only with a spoon.

The sequence that follows, taken from his match at the end of the suspense and fatigue against Bertens (who finally won 9-7 in the 3 rd set), oscillates between comic and tragedy ...

😨 Nothing is going any more for Sara Errani who seems to be completely losing her means ...


The Italian does it again while she was once again serving to win the set! # RG20
