what happened at Roland Garros

After almost an hour (54 minutes of play), Jannik Sinner managed to prevail in the first set against the Frenchman Richard GasquetIn the second round of Roland Garros 2024on the score of 6-4. The break in the seventh game was decisive in which the South Tyrolean he raised his level of tennis, taking time away from his opponent.

A few too many errors for the world no.2 on the backhand side, especially when changing along the line. Difficulty for Jannik in impacting the ball, due to the Parisian red clay not being so friendly. Despite these difficulties, our standard bearer managed to find the solutions to win the first stage as mentioned.

In the tenth game, however, a very particular episode damaged the South Tyrolean in the first fifteen, when he was serving to win the first set. Sinner pinched the intersection of the lines with a great cross-court forehand, arousing the outcry of the public convinced that the ball was out. The celebration of the French fans confused a ball boy, who started to collect the ball, just as Jannik had gone to take the point with another forehand on the break.

The chair judge was forced to have the point repeated due to this “unscheduled” and the ATP n.2 is good at not being influenced by this situation, given the final score of the first set in his favour.
