Дневник Ролан Гаррос. День 6

Rafael Nadal

At the Open championship of France started the third round, unfortunately, without a nine-time champion of the tournament.

Go on without me

Like thunder in a clear sky sounded news about the withdrawal of Rafael Nadal with Roland Garros. Nine-time champion has collected a press-conference on which has informed the following: “Forced to leave the tournament. Experiencing problems with my left wrist for several weeks. Thought long and hard about his participation in Roland Garros and decided to tempt fate… Yesterday played on the injections, and at night the pain only increased. To win the tournament, I would have to spend another five matches, but the doctors said it was impossible.”

Andy Murray and other players have sympathized with such an early departure of Nadal. Now the Briton will be easier to win the title at Roland Garros as the Spaniard was about an equal chance with the second racket of the world for taking “major”. After removing the automatically Rafa in the fourth round out Marcel Granollers, who will face the winner of the duel between Dominique Tim and Alexander Zverev.

“Maple leaves”, go ahead!

Milos Raonic stopped the procession “lucky loser Andrei Martin, winning in three sets. The loonie made its fans a little nervous, when he took medical timeout, but non-game problems passed the eighth seeded. In the first set Raonic missed out on seven set points, but still managed to win the game on a tie-break. In the following segments Milos played with more confidence on the pitch, not allowing the Slovak occupying the 133-th place world ranking, to try to continue on their journey to the courts of Paris.

The next opponent of the native of Toronto will be albert Ramos. Quite suddenly the Spaniard stopped Jack sock. The American failed to repeat last year’s achievement, namely the exit in the fourth round in a tense struggle losing 55th tennis player in the ranking. Remarkably, the Spaniard had never made it further the second round at Roland Garros, and in the last four years could not win the French majors even starting the match. But everything happens for the first time, and now Ramos can rejoice, after all, made its debut exit in the 1/8 finals of the Grand slam tournament. By the way, the native of Barcelona won pyatisetovy match for the first time since 2011.

On experience

As expected, kei nishikori had a hard time in a duel with Fernando Verdasco, surely the last two previous opponents in the tournament. The Spaniard was able to restore parity after losing two sets, but in the decisive game upper still took fifth seeded. Nishikori vernadine played in the fifth game segment and three hours and 24 minutes on the court managed to pass the uncompromising “gruntovik”.

The next opponent of “samurai” was Richard Gasquet, who wasn’t afraid aggressive and assertive nick Kirasa and in three sets has finished with the third racket of Australia. Ninth seeded already knew how to defeat an opponent on the ground, because was able to use the experience of personal meetings with 19-m number rating. Gasquet has only once lost her serve, but it’s not much help Kiros, because at that moment the Frenchman led with a score 5:1. In the second pariah, the Aussie still resisted, reaching the tie-break, but in the third set, Richard was ruthless. “Bagel” in sets, and Gasquet for the fifth time in his career will play in the fourth round homemade “major”.

The long-awaited ease

After two exhausting battles pyatisetovy Andy Murray finally found peace and has passed his opponent without any problems. Ivo Karlovic could theoretically force the fight to the British, however, and he spent prolonged the match in the second round, winning the decisive fifth game Jordan Thompson with a score of 12:10. Only one out of three games against the second racket of the world, the Croat managed to impose struggle and to reach the tie-break. However, more 37-year-old veteran was unable and gave way to Murray. Interestingly, in the 1/8 final, Andy will face another “padovana” John Isner, equalising personal confrontations with Teymuraz Gabashvili. American joined the group of players who have played five sets in the current draw of the French Open. Isner gave as many as four games on his serve and lost 0:2 in the deciding set, but managed to surprise the public and to recoup, and later to celebrate the success.

Duty candle from Murray

Last year’s champion Wawrinka CN after nerve pass by Lukas ROSOL in the opening round decided to tempt fate and remove all questions, using a minimum number of parties. Behind Daniel Taro under the onslaught of the third could not resist seeded jérémy Chardy, who lost for the fifth full-match Swiss. Wawrinka’s next opponent will be Victor Troicki, who for the first time in his career he defeated Gilles Simon, break the heart of one local public.

“Bagel” from Shelby

Few people knew Shelby Rogers to the current Roland Garros. But the 23-year-old American managed to rewrite history and for the first time to reach the fourth round of the local tournament, but on the way to not beat the weakest opponents. And if Carolina wins over Pliskova and Elena Vesnina was still possible to explain the success of the 108-th racket of the world in a duel with Petra kvitova looks not an ordinary event. 10th seeded nothing has been able to do anything with the opponent in the first set, winning by just 12 points, took the second batch in the tiebreak and dry… once again was defeated in the final game segment. “I cried at the end of the match. Incredible! All as in a fog,” – said after Rogers, for which this victory was the biggest in his career.

In the next round the main sensation of game day will face Irina Begu. Romanian is also surprising lately, primarily for its consistent performance. After reaching the quarter-finals of Madrid and Rome semi-finals of Romanian keep up the speed and had already reached the fourth round in Paris, that it is the best result on this tournament. Today, the 28th tennis player on the WTA tour held for the third trehmetrovy match at Roland Garros, knocking out the offender Kateryna Bondarenko Annika Beck.

Victoria the lightest of the trio was won by the Spaniard – the fourth racket of the tournament in just over an hour lost, Yanina Wickmayer, giving the opponent only three games. Muguruza made it to the fourth round of the seventh of their last eight Grand slam tournaments in which he participated. In the next round for the third consecutive exit in the quarterfinals of Paris, the Country will face Svetlana Kuznetsova, who did not face the problems with her compatriot Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova.

Agnieszka radwańska after landslide victories over the previous two rivals gave Seth Barbara Zahlavova-Strycova. The Czech Republic recently won at Roland Garros for the first time in 12 years and tried to continue his successful series. The pole won the first set, but the second Czech in no way inferior opponent and triumviral on a tie-break. However, the third set of the 30th racket of the tournament was not enough and then brought the fight to his Victoria. The next opponent is the second tennis player of the WTA ranking will be Tsvetana Pironkova, with 11 attempts came in the fourth round of the main clay tournament. Bulgarian for the third time in a row did not give the opponent of Seth, quite suddenly, knocking Sloane Stephens. However, the American recently not very stable, because it is a weak-willed defeat of the 102-th racket of the world not so surprising.
