French Open 2024: Sabalenka, Medvedev, Djokovic and Zverev in action – live | French Open 2024

Salut tout le monde et bienvenue à Roland-Garros – jour cinq!


“Thanks” to the rain, there’s an absolutely indecent quantity of glorious tennis awaiting us today … except the likelihood is that we see almost none of it, because the likelihood also is that it’s going to rain almost all day once more.


For that reason I’m not entirely sure why, given the first hour of play might be dry, we’re not trying to finish matches which started yesterday, but by and large, we’re not. However, we do have the buzz of yesterday’s classic between Iga Swiatek and Naomi Osaka to sustain us, along with a full programme on our two covered courts.


So we’ll begin on Lenglen with Daniil Medvedev, still not loving clay, against Miomir Kecmanovic, good enough to give him trouble; and after that, we’re getting some Elena Rybakina, Alexander Zverev v David Goffin, and a bit of Madison Keys.


On Chatrier, meanwhile, Aryna Sbalenka opens up against the young Japanese, Moyuka Uchijima, after which Elina Svitolina takes on the dangerous Diane Parry and Novak Djokovic meets Roberto Carballes Baena. Or, in other words, it’s not what we came for … but it’s plenty.


Play: 11am local, 10am BST

Important Events

Nakajima quickly won the first set, Just like in the first round, the No. 8 seed will have to make an upset to win.


Huby Hurkacz finds himself in a difficult situation. He held on to force a break against Nakashima, but is now down 5-1.


For the record, I will be focusing on three matches in the men’s match, not by design or desire, but simply because they are the best matches we can take first.


We are going to Koh Lanlan. Resident coach Calv Bettonand his hopeful message: “There will be fewer volleys, fewer variations, fewer winners and longer rallies. Kecmanovic doesn’t make many mistakes so that might make it difficult for Medvedev. If Medvedev can’t score on serve, that’s the only way he can win a point. But Kecmanovic is really hard to read. He’s often disinterested, but when he does get interested he’s very demanding.”



Well, our commentators just want us to finish all of today’s matches. The weather forecast doesn’t say that, but maybe that changed early this morning. I hope so.


Yes, it’s not raining. This is just the beginning. So, I’ll start by watching the matches: Kecmanovic vs. Medvedev, Shapovalov vs. Tiafoe, and Hurkacz vs. N’Krasima.



Hello everyone and welcome to Roland Garros – it’s day 5!

Thanks to the rain, there’s a ton of great tennis to watch today… except that with rain threatening again all day, you’ll likely miss most of it.

So I don’t really understand why they don’t try to finish the matches that started yesterday, when it may be dry for the first hour, but overall it’s not like that, but the excitement of yesterday’s famous match between Iga Swiatek and Naomi Osaka has kept us going, and the program is full on the two covered courts.

So, in the run-run, we start with Daniil Medvedev, who is still not very good on clay, against Miomir Ketumanovic, who is good enough to give him a hard time, followed by Jelena Rybakina, Alexander Zverev vs David Goffin and Madison Keys.

Meanwhile, at Chatrier, Aryna Svalenka will play the young Japanese player Shigeyuki Uchijima, then Elina Svitolina will take on the dangerous Diane Parry and Novak Djokovic will take on Roberto Carballes Baena. In other words, not what we were expecting, but good enough.

Play time: 11am local time, 10am BST
