what to remember from Sunday at Roland-Garros

Rafael Nadal, thirteen-time Roland-Garros title winner, will find world number one Novak Djokovic in the quarterfinals on Tuesday after his Sunday victory over Canadian FĂ©lix Auger-Aliassime, 3-6, 6-3, 6- 2, 3 -6, 6-3 after four and a half hours of exchanges in a central incandescent field.

Carlos Alcaraz walked against Karen Khachanov in just over two hours of play: 6-1, 6-4, 6-4. The Spaniard flew over the first set and broke in at best time in the seventh game of the second set. Superiority of 6e the world has been unquestionable. In the third act, Alcaraz was broken again thanks to a sublime tweezers. Russia saved 5 game points in his service, but logically surrendered. The phenomenon will face in the quarter Alexander Zverev, against whom he has a negative record (1-2), but whom he largely defeated a few weeks ago in the Madrid final.

Like last year, Coco Gauff will be in the quarterfinals at Roland-Garros: The 18-year-old American dominated Belgian Elise Mertens on Sunday, 6-4, 6-0 in less than 13:30. There she will find her compatriot Sloane Stephens, who will also play the third quarter in Porte d’Auteuil … with the difference that for her, it has been three years since she reached this level in a Grand Slam. The 2018 finalist in Paris and the 2017 winner of the US Open, now 64th in the world, won her ticket on Sunday defeating Jil Teichmann (24), 6-2, 6-0.

Italian Martina Trevisan, 59th in the world and young Canadian Leylah Fernandez, 18th in the world at 19, will face each other in the Roland-Garros quarterfinal.
