LIVE – Roland-Garros: return to earth for Jeanjean, Swiatek on track at the Central

Copious program on the French side, with Léolia Jeanjean, Alizé Cornet and Gilles Simon. But also Daniil Medvedev, who will do his first real test of the fortnight, against the Serbian Miomir Kecmanovic. Operated on for a hernia in early April, the Russian lost in Geneva to Richard Gasquet for his return to the courts. But Porte d’Auteuil where he remains on a quarter-final in 2021, the pupil of Gilles Cervara is unfolding for the moment. After Facundo Bagnis dispatched (6-2, 6-2, 6-2) on the Suzanne-Lenglen, the Russian quietly overpowered the Serb Laslo Djere (6-3, 6-4, 6-3). It is another Serb who stands up to him, Saturday at the opening on the Philippe Chatrier. A tougher test, a priori. Miomir Kecmanovic, 8e finalist at the Australian Open and quarter-finalists in Indian Wells and Miami, is more comfortable on hard courts. But Medvedev, too. “ Medvedev, obviously it won’t be easy, assures the Serb. He plays well. But of course, it’s not his favorite surface, it’s not where he feels most comfortable. So, to play against him, it is better to play on clay than elsewhere.»
