Fernandez bounces back and snatches the second set … Zverev-Alcaraz at 3pm … Watch the quarter-finals live


13:52 : Trevisan opens this third set with a white play after conceding the second inning on a double foul.

1:46 p.m .: It’s done! Double foul by Trevisan who offers the second inning to Fernandez. Holy awakening of the Canadian after a complicated first set.

1:45 p.m .: 6-3 and set ball for the Canadian!

1:42 p.m. : Ten minutes after saving no match ball, Leylah Fernandez now leads 3-0 in this tie break.

1:41 p.m .: It’s done, white game for the Italian.

1:40 p.m. : It ponders but it makes the taf, 40-0. We are going to head gently to the tie-break.

1:38 p.m. : And it goes hand in hand with an imperfect game to lead 6 to 5! It has to start thinking about the Trevisan side.

1:34 pm: Another great return from Fernandez! 5 games everywhere

1:33 pm: And 5-5 ball to follow! She won’t let go of the girl.

1:31 p.m .: Match ball cleared by a new brute right kick. Needless to say, when she knocks like that, it beats hard.

1:30 pm: And hop, there’s nothing left … 40-30 and first game ball for the 57th World Cup!

1:27 p.m .: Go boom, two Fernandez cross claps that send Trevisan back into the ropes. 0-30

1:27 p.m .: Go boom, two Fernandez cross claps that send Trevisan back into the ropes. 0-30

1:25 pm: Ahhhhh Fernandez who (re) cracks at the worst of times! 5-4 for Trevisan who will serve for a place in the half.

1:19 p.m. : Cushioned, lob, stolen, Fernandez pulls out everything she has in the drawers to push Trevisan to the fault and it pays off. 4-3 for the 17th World Cup, which scared us in the first set with the call to the physiotherapist but which has been much better for a while.

1:15 p.m .: Four break points saved by Trevisan and 3-3!

1:13 p.m. : Big stick on this 6th game Trevisan came close to breaking new ground, but he hit the line twice. And she came back with a ball to go back to 3-3.

1:08 pm: Well, it won’t have dragged on since Martina Trevisan breaks free.

1:05 p.m .: It’s done, Fernandez makes the break to lead 3-1!

: And go! First break point for the Canadian on this volley that hooks the line.

1:03 p.m. : The painkillers have to work, Fernandez seems to be less gallant when accelerating. Long live science.

1 p.m. : For now we will say that this is a paid tactic since she has not yet given up her service game. 2-1 Fernandez

12:55 p.m. : I have the impression that Fernandez decided to shorten the exchanges (relative to the sore foot) by sending satchel after satchel.

12:52 p.m. : Come on, first point for Fernandez in this second set! Yeah Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like BT aint for me either.

12:50 p.m. : Beautiful WTF sequence by Nelson Monfort who interrogates a Mexican family to ask them why Roland-Garros is the best tournament in the world. My mother …

12:48: That won’t be enough, Trevisan prevails without forcing in the first set.

12:47 : Fernandez bounces back and clears three set balls, okay.

12:45 p.m. : At the moment I don’t think Trevisan needs anything, she walks around and offers herself three set balls.

12:44 p.m. : She is arguing with the referee, I wonder if she is not complaining about the encouragement (understanding, instructions) of the coach of Trevisan from the stands.

12:43: Well, it’s clearly complicated for the Canadian who is leading 5-2.

12:40 p.m. : I feel like Fernandez is kicking a little anyway… Which doesn’t stop him from slamming this beautiful ball to lead 15-0 on his serve. But Trevisan is still ahead (4-2).

12:37 p.m. : All good massages have an end. We left.

12:35 p.m. : She takes the opportunity to take a look at her notes on her little notebook. Take the seed, dear students, who follow us instead of revising the exams.

12:32 p.m. : Pain in the right foot. We are even on our toes if you want to know everything. And I know you want to, band of insatiable little ferrets.

12:30 p.m. : Leylah Fernandez calls the physiotherapist. A short break from home, at home.

12:28 : Well seen little one! The Canadian manages to save this point.

12:25: Fernandez is already in the hard and offers a double break ball to Trevisan after this straight shot sent to Perpette-les-Oies.

12:21 p.m. : That’s it, Fernandez scores his first point and in turn enters the game. 2-1 Trevisan. At 19 freestyle, we also have to take stock of the stakes and the context, but we felt more relaxed about this game.

12:19 p.m. : Yes, I know, I tangled my mikados by announcing the first point for Fernandez. I’m going to have to get back to this live (and better) fast.

12:18 p.m. : This second game has been going on for a while now but Trevisan doesn’t let go and confirms his break. 2-0

12:15 p.m. : Trevisan has a hard time facing Fernandez, who catches the ball very early in the rebound. 40-A on the service of the Italian.

12:12: The Italian sends big shields of entry and direct break.

12:10 pm: Come on, it’s off to this first game!

12:05 p.m. : And we will start this day with the first quarterfinals of the ladies that will pit the Italian Martina Trevisan (28 freestyle and 59th in the world) against the young Canadian Leylah Fernandez (19 years old, 18th).

12pm: It’s time, kids!

11:55 : Come on, more than 5 minutes before the broadcast on France 4. Tic, tac, tic, tac. I don’t know if it did the same thing to you in that early Roland, but I didn’t know that channel still existed.

11:30 : Once is not customary, we will start the day with a little reading, to honor our double of special envoys to Roland. And today, the least we can say is that there is something to do!

11:15: Hello Roland-Garrix! Welcome to 20 Minutes for a new fiery live day with a behind-the-scenes program for the start of the quarterfinals.

Hello friends! If you were planning to work today, warn you right away that it looks complicated. With two monstrous quarterfinals between Alexander Zverev and the little Spanish prodigy Carlos Alcaraz on one side, and the huge clash of legends between Rafa Nadal and Novak Djokovic on the other (in that night session), we are ready to apologize today for staying in front of the TV (and 20 Minutes) and postpone the rest. The program is now necessarily lighter than in previous days, we will take the antenna a little later than usual.

So head to the 11:30 a.m. to kick off this crazy day on Parisian ocher.
