On Tuesday, the games that were interrupted by rain on Monday-evening were completed. In one, Richard Gasquet won three sets with Lloyd Harris. One of the favorites of the Parisian crowd confirmed the good form he showed at the previous tournament in Geneva. In turn, the South African representative lost the fifth game in a row.

Of the seeded players, Stefanos Tsitsipas (4), Andrei Rublev (7), Casper Ruud (8), Jannik Sinner (11), Frances Tiafoe (24), Sebastian Korda (27) and Lorenzo Sonego (32) moved up.

Tsitsipas ran into trouble for his game. The Greek turned out to be worse than Lorenzo Musetti in the first and second set. The Italian could handle the favorite’s trumps and was one step away from making a surprise. Tsitsipas had no intention of letting it go and gradually took the initiative. Just before 1:00 am the fifth set was decided.

Three seeded tennis players said goodbye to singles. Tommy Paul (30) started the match against Cristian Garin well, but the first victory turned out to be the last positive match in Paris. The Chilean found a way to beat the American and won in the other three sets. Tie-break in turn decided to say goodbye to Alex De Minaur (19) with Roland Garros. The conqueror was Hugo Gaston from France. In the last match of the day, Pablo Carreno (16) lost to Gilles Simon in five sets.
