If you want to watch a great comeback, with some incredible points, check out the match or highlights of the Carlos Alcaraz vs. Albert Ramos-Vinolas.

Alcaraz had a great clay court season leading up to the French Open, he is one of the favorites. He is on the toughest side of the men's draw with novak and Rafa.

DAY 7: THREE THINGS TO LOOK OUT FOR
:popcorn:
:clap:
:read:


https://www.rolandgarros.com/en-us/...-to-look-out-for-gaston-rune-badosa-sabalenka

Gaston and Rune set friendship aside
If you want a glimpse into the future of tennis, all you need is a ticket to the Court Philippe-Chatrier night session.

After Sebastian Korda and Carlos Alcaraz put on a show for the fans on Friday, it's now the turn of 19-year-old Holger Rune and 21-year-old Hugo Gaston to put their own skills on display.

A lefty with a mean drop shot, Gaston has a history of pulling off big wins and major upsets in Paris.

When he made his Roland-Garros debut in 2020 ranked outside the top 200, he knocked out 2015 champion Stan Wawrinka and pushed two-time finalist Dominic Thiem to five sets before bowing out in the fourth round, his best Grand Slam result to date.

Besties Badosa, Sabalenka hope to avoid upset bug
While a number of high-seeded women in the bottom half of the draw have already bowed out, the top half is stacked with 10 of the 16 seeds taking their place in the third round.

No.3 Paula Badosa and No.7 Aryna Sabalenka are among those looking to capitalise on the chance to lift their first Grand Slam trophy in Paris.

The former doubles partners could even meet in the quarter-finals, but they will have to overcome some big hurdles to get there.

Playing third on Court Suzanne-Lenglen, Badosa will face Veronika Kudermetova for the third time this season.

Congrats to Coco and Sloane. Hate to see them in the same half of the draw, because they are both playing very well. But, that's the way the ball bounces.

Same with Rafael and Novak.

Auger almost had it, but Rafa pulled it out in the end. When he got the break in the final set, I thought he had it, but the King of Clay came back.
