PARIS – Last at the French Grand Slam Tennis Championships (always local):
Irina-Camelia Begu reached the fourth round of the Grand Slam tournament for the first time in six years, getting into one match at Roland Garros after she was fined $ 10,000 for throwing a racket and throwing a child in the stands.
The Romanian, who ranks 63rd in the ranking, took the lead, beating on Saturday the 227th place in the ranking of French Leolia Zhanajan with a score of 6-1, 6-4.
She has been running for 31 years and she is participating in her 41st major tournament. Previously, her best performances were runs in the fourth round of the Australian Open in 2015 and the French Open in 2016.
Jinjan appeared in her first event at the level of the round and in the second round beat the two-time major finalist and former number 1 Karolina Plishkova.
The game continues on day 7 at Roland Garros, and Igo Svyatek, seeded No. 1, will soon try to extend his 30-match winning streak.
The third round is due to end on Saturday.
The saint confronts the 95th Danka Kovinic in the court of Philip Shatrie. Sviatek was the 2020 champion at the French Open, and Kovinich never made it to the third round of major tournaments.
№ 3 Paula Bados will play with № 29 Veronica Kudermetova on the court of Susan Langlen.
US Open champion Daniil Medvedev is number 2 in the men’s draw and will play against Miami Ketsmanovich in the third round.
The 4th number of Stefanos Tsitsipas will meet the Swedish player Mikael Imer. A year ago, Tsitsipas took second place at Roland Garros.
