Paula Badosa surged into a 2-0 lead, having broken Kaja Juvan, but has been pegged back by the Slovenian so it’s now 2-1. And Pliskova, and Jeanjean are at 2-2.

Preamble

Under the bridges of Paris we go once more, to channel Eartha Kitt. It’s a day when Wimbledon-verboten Daniil Medvedev meets Serbia’s Laslo Djere on Philippe-Chatrier, and over on Court Suzanne-Lenglen, last year’s quarter-finalist and no 3 seed Paula Badosa is already underway with her match against Kaja Juvan. Later on, we will see local favourite Gilles Simon in action, against the American, Steve Johnson, and Dan Evans continues the plucky Brit trail in taking on Sweden’s Mikael Ymer. And Wimbledon and US Open finalist Karolina Pliskova takes on French wildcard Leolia Jeanjean on Court Simonne-Mathieu as well.

Perhaps not a day for the biggest guns, but Simona Halep, due to start knocking up around lunchtime, is a big draw, as is Iga Swiatek, who was devastating in her first round match. Halep takes on the Chinese teenager, Qinwen Zheng, while Swiatek takes on Alison Riske of the United States.

It’s a bit cloudy in Paris, which is also starting to fill with fans of Liverpool and Real Madrid.
