Pavlyuchenkova-Mertens and Khachanov-Sonego at the beginning of the program… Follow the day on Sunday

The round of 16 of Roland-Garros begins on the courts of the Porte d’Auteuil.

With the first week of Roland-Garros over, the favorites to win the final will now try to qualify for the quarter-finals. This eighth day of the Parisian Grand Slam, Sunday 4 June, will begin on the Philippe-Chatrier court with the match between the Belgian Elise Mertens and the Russian Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova. After this match, it will be Novak Djovokic’s turn to face Juan Pablo Varillas. On Suzanne-Lenglen’s field, in the first rotation, Lorenzo Sonego, who beat Andrey Rublev in the 3rd round, will try to carry out a new feat against Karen Khachanov.

A Saturday without surprises

By the end of lap three, everything went as planned at Porte d’Auteuil on Saturday, for the main favourites. Among the women, Iga Swiatek thus corrected the Chinese Xinyu Wang (6-0, 6-0), while Ons Jabeur overcame the obstacle Olga Danilovic after working a little more (4-6, 6-4, 6-2). Note, however, the unexpected abandonment of the number four in the world Elene Rybakina. Among men it happened for Alexander Zverev, Casper Ruud and Holger Rune.

First female night session

First day of the round of 16, this Sunday 4 June should be eventful on the Parisian clay. For the first time in the tournament, a clash of the women’s rankings will have the honors of the night session, with the opposition between Sloane Stephens and Aryna Sabalenka, on the court of Philippe-Chatrier. Before that, the Ukrainian Elina Svitolina will continue her adventure against the Russian Daria Kasatkina, while Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova will start the day at 11 on the Chatrier against Elise Mertens.

Djokovic, Alcaraz and Tsitsipas on the pitch

In the men’s draw, the heavy artillery came out on this very sunny Sunday, with Novak Djokovic expected at lunchtime against the Peruvian Juan Pablo Varillas, followed by the tempting duel between Carlos Alcaraz and Lorenzo Musetti. Another favorite, Stefanos Tsitsipas has an appointment in Lenglen at the end of the afternoon against the Austrian Sebastian Ofner. Also worth seeing: the surprise Lorenzo Sonego, against Karen Khachanov, from 11:00
