French Open: Swiatek and Medvedev continue without any problems

For Swiatek, it was her 30th win in a row, and she only needed 61 minutes to win. The Pole is the top favorite to win the title in the second Grand Slam of the season. The favorite to win the title wants to return to the training ground on Friday. “I will work on everything. I am a perfectionist,” said Swiatek, who now meets Danka Kovinic of Montenegro on Saturday.

Paula Padusa will likely be the biggest contender en route to the final. Fourth place in the rankings from Spain beat Kaja Juvan of Slovenia 7:5 3:6 6:2. Although Padusa only showed a mixed performance at Court Philippe Chatrier, the 24-year-old Spaniard is still expected. “I feel better on clay from game to game,” Padusa said.

Aryna Sabalenka (7), the only remaining top eight seed along with Swiatek and Badusa, has advanced to the tour. The Belarusian beat American Madison Pringle 6:1 6:3. The American Jessica Pegula also advanced by defeating Anilina Kalinina of Ukraine 6:1 5:7 6:4.

On the other hand, Czech Karolina Pliskova (8) had to bow out to France’s Yulia Gangin 2:6 2:6. For the previous French Open winner Simona Halep, it also ended in the second round. The Roman lost to the Chinese Qinwen Zheng 6: 2 2: 6 1: 6.

Medvedev without problems

Medvedev won the men’s match against the Serbian Laszlo Djeri 6: 3 6: 4 6: 4. The Russian meets another Serbian in Miomir Kekmanovic (No. 28) to qualify for the round of 16. Kazakh Alexander Bublik gave denial in four sentences. “Honestly, Laszlo played the best tennis court on clay today,” Medyev said on court. “But I was able to fight back and put the ball on the field more than he did. It was a very difficult match, but I am happy to win.”

Medvedev, the US Open champion, enters the third round in Paris after submitting twice

Should Medvedev reach the final, he would take over the rankings regardless of the performance of defending champion Novak Djokovic on June 13. Last year, the 26-year-old reached the quarter-finals after a string of first-round defeats at Roland Garros. In addition, eighth-placed Norwegian Kasper Ruud beat Emil Rossovoori (Finland) 6:3 6:4 6:2 on Thursday.

hard worker Tsitsipas

In the men’s field, Stefanos Tsitsipas is the serious worker for the first few days. After five first-round sets, last year’s finalist had to battle the great Czech Zdenek Kolar for four hours on Thursday before winning 6:3 7:6 6:7 7:6 with Swede Mikael Ymir (95th in the rankings). Global), another opponent is waiting now, which shouldn’t be a huge obstacle for the Greek, the fourth-placed – on paper at least.
