Goffin rescues the 3rd set from a double break down. Vital recovery for him. Should get through in 4 now.

That doesn't exactly bode well for Thiem going forward, but I'm sure he'll get the job done. On a random note, the record-breaking Japanese players are being destroyed in the singles so far!

Monfils turning on some of the magic that only he knows how to play
6-2 first set and up 4-2 second and Vasselin playing good stuff
Great tennis by Gael

Absolutely temp.. he is such pleasure to watch when he is in full flow.
Even in tense situations he stays good humoured ..now serving for the second match and Vasselin is not playing rubbish either.
But heh that would be a great match again if he meets Roger... Wink

Monfils gets it done le Monf style, that is 2 hours later than needed, but through enough

Nasty wind affecting matches, but great result for Heather, Muzz serving for first set

RG website:

http://www.rolandgarros.com/en_FR/scores/schedule/index.html

But I agree it is horrible. My guess is they try to make it more mobile-friendly and not cram too much data onto one page and have big fonts etc, but it looks horrible on a real computer.

Workman-like from Andy but the main thing is he didn't drag it out too long. Wins 6-3 6-3 6-1. Kyle Edmund going along nicely but hold the phone....Robert on the verge of breaking back.

Edmund has a big forehand. Been whistling winners past Robert frequently. First serve seems to have a tendency to go awol though.

Real big awards for Edmund if he can win this match rankings-wise but he has dipped just now. He leads by two sets to one but Robert is 3-0 up in the 4th set so looks set to go to 5.

Cracking performance from Edmund and he is certainly on the up. He has been climbing the rankings consistently for the last year or so and now he has broken into the top 100. He'll find it tough against Kyrgios but nothing to lose and who knows?

A certain Tim Henman was 20 when he won his first Slam match. Wonder if Edmund can crack on like Tim did.
