Jabeur, first at the Porte d'Auteuil
The Tunisian put an end to a small incongruity. Double finalist at Wimbledon and the US Open, quarterfinalist at the Australian Open, she had never gone beyond the 8th Porte d'Auteuil, her favorite Grand Slam that she won in 2011 in the juniors. Ancient history. The Tunisian advanced to the quarters by beating American Bernarda Pera 6-3, 6-1. It reproduced the characteristic gesture of Cristiano Ronaldo during his goal celebrations and the adapted little cry, the famous "Siuuu". She has a great opportunity to continue the adventure on Wednesday against Beatriz Haddad Maia (14th in the world).
A women's match in history
What a fight! On the Suzanne-Lenglen in the opening program, the Brazilian Beatriz Haddad Maia, seeded 14, took 3 hours 51 minutes to overcome the Spaniard Sara Sorribes Tormo (6-7, 6-3, 7-5) to reach the quarters. This is simply the third longest match in the history of Roland Garros. The longest remaining the one between the two Frenchwomen Virginie Buisson and Noëlle Van Lottum in 1195 (6-7, 7-5, 6-2).
Casper Ruud at the rendezvous
On alternating current before the Internationaux de France, the finalist of the 2022 edition has resumed colors on the Parisian ochre. He perfectly negotiated an open draw by dominating Nicolas Jarry (7-6, 7-5, 7-5), after a bitter fight of 3 hours 20. The Norwegian was much more realistic than his opponent who converted only 3 of his 17 break chances.
Whistles addressed to Ons Jabeur after his gesture as a footballer
The incomprehensible whistles addressed by a small (but already too important) part of the public when the Tunisian opposed to the American Pera (6-3, 6-1) had fun to take the ball back, succeeding in passing a subtle gesture (although a little unscrewed), applauded fortunately by the other part of the audience knowing, her, appreciate the technique of the seventh player in the world /

The French have also disappeared from the doubles tables
The tricolor pairs engaged in the men's and women's tables have already disappeared from the radar. Last French women competing in the women's category, Alizé Cornet and Diane Parry lost at the stage of the 8th finals against the Chan-Chan pair in three sets. A very bleak picture after the painful record of the Blues in singles.
Rune's lack of fair play
The Dane gave himself a break opportunity in the third set of the match between him and Francesco Cerrundolo after putting a ball back into play... who had bounced twice. The Argentine stopped playing but his attitude, which may have disrupted the exchange, was sanctioned by the referee who gave the point to the Scandinavian. Cerrundolo protested in front of Rune who did not intervene to acknowledge that the ball had indeed bounced twice.
