Roland Garros: Musetti beats Monfils and now Djokovic – Tennis

Lorenzo Musetti lit up the evening at Roland Garros, defeating local tennis player Gael Monfils in three sets (7-5, 6-1, 6-4). In the third round, he will face Novak Djokovic. The blue player played a very strong match, and he only suffered in the first set and then extended it to a long distance. Day 5, still plagued by poor weather, also gave the green light to Matteo Arnaldi and Elisabetta Cocchiaritto, while also seeing the exits of Luciano Darderi, Fabio Fognini and Lorenzo Sonego. Fognini was only three games away from American Tommy Paul, who defeated him 6-1, 6-0, 6-2. There was also nothing to be done for Sonego, who fought back before giving up: the 29-year-old from Turin was beaten 7-5, 3-6, 6-1, 6-4 – in three hours and 17 minutes of the match. – Zhizhen Zhang of China is No. 44 in the ranking. In the fourth set, Sonego was trying to get back into the match by going from 1-4 to 3-4, but rain halted his comeback and when the match resumed Zhang was no longer risking anything.

Three “heavy” names in the draw, such as Djokovic, Alexander Zverev and Daniil Medvedev, qualified for the third round without any stumbles. The Serbian defeated Spaniard Roberto Carballes in three sets (6-4, 6-1, 6-2), allowing him only something in the first set. The German easily got rid of Belgian David Goffin 7-6 (7/4), 6-2, 6-2, and it seems that he is not worried at all about the appeal process that begins tomorrow in Berlin, which he started against a fine. 450 thousand euros were imposed on him in 2023 on charges of domestic violence. Finally, the Russian was dominating Miomir Kekmanovic (6-1, 5-0) when the Serbian was forced to retire due to injury after 55 minutes of play. The first Italian to reach the third round was Arnaldi. The rain interruptions did not distract the Sanremo player, who happily finished the match that began yesterday against Frenchman Alexander Muller in three sets (6-4, 6-1, 6-3). Now it’s getting tough for him because his next opponent is called Andrey Rublev – No. 6 in the rankings, among the favorites after winning the Masters 1000 tournament in Madrid – who beat Spaniard Pedro Martinez in three sets. “I’m happy because it was not an easy match – Arnaldi said in the press conference – it is difficult to always maintain concentration for long hours… I think it was the most turbulent match of my career.” El-Dardiri fought back but ended up losing to No. 26 Talon Grikspor, who will face Zverev. The Dutchman was forced to break the tie in the first set, with his opponent leading by one break. After another rain interruption, he then won the next two matches by a double score of 6-3. In the women’s draw, Cocciarito’s journey continued by defeating Spain’s Cristina Buxa in two sets (6-1, 6-4), to qualify for the third round. Now the Marche-born player, ranked 51st in the WTA rankings, will compete for a place in the first round of the round of 16 at a Grand Slam tournament with Russia’s Lyudmila Samsonova, seeded 17th.
