2:20 p.m. : We will gently switch to the second quarterfinals of the ladies with the world number 1 Iga Swiatek (and her 32 consecutive victories) against the American Jessica Pegula, No. 11 seed. We allow ourselves a mini-break of a few minutes the poles. See you soon!
2:17 pm: AHAHAHAH BEN SI CA A FAIT! I told you, I’m the worst gambler in the world. Come on, Kasatkina victory after a really nice match.
2:16 p.m. : A match ball, it’s not going to do it right?
2:15 p.m. : Two match balls, it should do, nooooooooooon?
2:14 p.m. : Three game balls, that should do it, right?
2:13 p.m. : Four game balls, it should do it right?
2:10 pm: Well, I’m a real truffle dog… Kasatkina has rererererebreaker to return to 6-6. And in the tie-break, the lady leads 4-0. It smells like pine forest for Kudermetova.
2:08 pm: Rideau-cocorico! Victory fingers in the nose for our two players. 6-3, 6-3, thank you good evening.
2:07 p.m. : Ah well I get pile hair for the match ball. Finally almost, 5-3 and 30-0 for the French pair.
2:06 p.m. : Come on, I’m going to put Prime to check on the game of Kiki Mladenovic and Caro Garcia while Kudermetova gets her pussy pounded by the physiotherapist.
2:02 p.m. : What I do know, however, is that I announced that we were going to spend a long time there. So don’t look, Kuder will win this second round and it will end in a super tie break. You can fav.
2:00 pm: 8:30 am later (I think I didn’t follow, we just changed the livery), Kudermetova ended up snatching this point!
1:54 p.m .: Kudermetova’s incredible defense that avoids getting a breaker again.
1:50 p.m. : And Kudermetova rebooting, it’s amazing. Kasatkina who completely cracked when she could conclude.
1:47 p.m. : Oh Kasatkina who rebreak live. It will be used to win the game.
1:45 p.m. : Speaking of breaks: Caro Garcia and Kiki Mladenovic also broke the Chinese in the second set and lead 3-0.
1:44 pm: Kudermetova’s break !!!!! Amazing
1:39 p.m .: MAGNIFICENT KUDERMETOVA. It sends straight shots to the left and right to end on a cushion.
1:34 p.m. : Holy duel between the two Russians. It hits hard, it doesn’t make a lot of mistakes. It’s really fun to watch. And Kudermetova who lets go of nothing and stays in touch: 4-3 for Kasatkina.
1:32 p.m. : Frankly, if singles did not exist, France would be a major nation in world tennis. Between Kiki-Caro and Herbert-Mahut, it’s pretty good. Finally, especially at Roland Garros.
1:30 p.m. : Wait, but Garcia and Mladenovic have already broken in the first game of the second inning. It’s solid.
1:29 p.m. : We return to the Russian duel in singles. Kasatkina is imperial. And yet, it hits in the face.
1:27 p.m .: And yes the first set for the Blue Ladies and Gentlemen. They again took the service of the Chinese. That’s good.
1:26 p.m. : Well, of course, it’s enough to talk about it for the two French women to get unloaded. But they still have one in advance. Go there.
1:21 p.m. : Small (big) double section: our French Caroline Garcia and Kristina Mladenovic are on fire and serve for the first set against a Chinese pair.
13:20 : For the record, we had followed the Kasatkina-Giorgi in the previous round, and she had already made a big impression on us by bringing back all the missiles from the Italian. It was awesome.
1:19 p.m. : Ooooooh Kasatkina’s breath of fresh air that breaks after twelve minutes of this game. Huge Russian (well, the other one is also Russian, but hey, you get the point).
1:17 p.m. : Huge defense of Kasatkina. The game has been running for 123 minutes, but it’s still vibrant.
1:15 p.m. : There’s a line judge who just announced a foul ball three hours later. Well, he was right, but take it back, you have to be sharp on the supports.
1:13 p.m. : Kudermetova just saved a few break points in a very nice way
1:06 p.m .: That’s it, Kudermetova’s debreak. The story is moving.
1:05 p.m. : And entry break for Kasatkina. It’s not impossible for it to go fast enough in this second set (a priori now that I’ve said that, we’re probably going to run a multi-hour marathon).
1 p.m. : After a short passage through the game of legends where Henri Leconte showed us the full extent of his (non) technique, we are back on the first quarterfinal for the second set.
12:55 PM: Would I have missed telling you that Kasatkina still ended up winning the last point and the first set? Yes, absolutely.
12:50 p.m. : This point is very hooked, Kudermetova does not intend to drop the set without a fight.
12:46 p.m. : Good and if not, this game, Aymeric? Oh yeah, it’s true it plays. Auuuuu time for me! Well you will learn that Kasatkina has just paid for the first break of this match (5-4). It will be used to win the first round.
12:45 p.m. : We are about unanimous at 20 Minutes to say that Ricchie to the comments, well, how to say that without hurting him? Let’s just say it’s not crazy. The singing accent reminiscent of holidays in Occitania, the little pastaga, boules and cicadas (not exhaustive lists of shots) will not save you forever.
12:40 p.m. : Joke, of course. I understood that it was because Kiki and Caro were coming to the court to play their double against the Chinese pair Xu / Yang.
12:38 : Change of liveur (of liver? I do not know how to say). Commentator change, that’s it! I see that my predecessor was all excited about the victory of the Belgian-Norwegian mixed duo. Chelou this boy.
12:33: IT’S OVER ON SIMONNE-MATHIEU !!! Victory for the Eikeri / Vliegen pair … so Caroline Garcia and Kiki Mladenovic will go to great lengths to break everything !!!
12:31 p.m. : Kasatkina throws two break points to draw 3-3. Beautiful mastery displayed at the end of this game.
12:29 p.m. : To put the two players a bit, this is the very first quarter of Kudermetova in the Grand Slam. His best result at Roland Garros was a 3rd round so far. Kasatkina, on the other hand, has already played two quarters, one in Paris in 2018 and another at Wimbledon. His best Grand Slam perfs.
12:27 : Kasatkina lands immediately. As much as Kudermetova dominates the winning number, she also makes a lot of mistakes.
12:23 pm: It transforms the test! It’s 3-1!
12:22 p.m. : First break ball for Kudermetova!
12:20 p.m. : Already 6 winning shots for Kudermetova. 6 more than Kasatkina.
12:17 p.m. : Third set on the Simonne-Mathieu between Melichar / Krawietz and Eikeri / Vliegen. We’re still going to wait for Kiki and Caro.
12:15 p.m. : Leading 0-30, Kasatkina comes out on top and draws a game everywhere.
12:12 : Kudermetova wins the first real rally of the match with a winning shot after ten exchanges. Very good start.
12:11 p.m. : It started on the Chatrier, and Kudermetova won her game by finishing with two aces. The message is clear.
12:08 p.m. : To see French people, otherwise, it happens mainly on the Lenglen. Mary Pierce, PHM, Leconte, Llodra, Golovin … That’s it, the Trophy of Legends.
12:06 p.m. : We will still have to wait a bit, but we will follow with great attention the Garcia / Mladenovic – Xu / Yang in the quarterfinals of the double on the Simonne-Mathieu. It will start as soon as the current match is over. Yes, there are still French women.
12:05 p.m. : Opposite, at Veronika Kudermetova, we lost two sets along the way. But we released Paula Badosa and Madison Keys and that’s tough.
12:03 p.m. : Kasatkina, No. 20 seed, has been very clean since the start of the tournament. What victories in two sets. Maximum five games dropped per game. Not bad, huh?
12:00 : It’s noon, it’s nice, it’s hot, and you’re right to take your daily dose of tennis. We start with a 100% Russian duel between Kudermetova and Kasatkina!
Live starts just before noon for the first quarterfinals ladies
