When listing the favorites, the Spaniard Paula Padosa only rarely mentioned. But that can be a mistake, because the fourth in the world rankings should not be underestimated – especially if you look at which favorites had to give up in the first two rounds.
The former world number one Simona Halep is also facing her second task. The same applies to Andrey Rublev.
Who buys the ticket for round three? And for whom is the last stop on the fifth day of the tournament?

12:35pm Badosa-Juvan 7-5, 2-5
Juvan Badosa broke on the Suzanne Lenglen court, but now has to go through the debut himself. But after a good serve, the Slovenian follows the ball nicely and gets the ball. And then Badosa actually has almost a 100% chance of converting on the net, but plays the ball directly in front of Juvan’s racket. The points to 5:2. We are approaching a third set.
12:26 Uhr – Djere – Medvedev – 2: 2
Medvedev has regained the lost service game. It’s all back in line in the first set. 2:2
12:16 Uhr – Djere – Medvedev – 1: 0
The match between Laslo Djere and Daniil Medvedev begins on the Philippe Chatrier. And not according to the wishes of the second in the world rankings. Medvedev immediately had to give up his first service game. It’s 1-0 for Djere.
12:07 Sacrifice – Ruth – Mount Rose – 6: 3, 2: 1
Three break chances for Ruud early in the second set. And in the second it is again the forehand cross with which the Norwegian closes the sack. He has more than enough time to position himself perfectly for the ball in the half field and takes the chance ice cold. 2:1 for Ruud.
12:02pm Badosa-Juvan 7-5
All good things come in threes from Badosa’s point of view. The Spaniard Juvan broke again and served again to win the set. And this time she makes it. When her opponent sets the ball, the Slovenian is also very bad at the ball and hits the ball miles wide. 7: 5 for Badosa in set one.
11:55 Badosa-Juvan 5-5
Turnaround on the Suzanne Lenglen court: Badosa twice had the opportunity to serve out to win the set. And both times the Spaniard had to give up her service game. Juvan equalized to 5:5.
Insane counterattack: Alcaraz lets the audience freak out
11:52 Sacrifice – Ruth – Mount Rose – 6: 3

Ruud secured the break. The Norwegian is now leading 4-2 in the first round.
11:38am Badosa-Juvan 5-2
Badosa has break ball again. And then Juvan’s serve is far too harmless. With the return, Badosa easily converts to 5:2. The Spaniard serves right away to win the set.
11:32 Sacrifice – Ruth – Mount of Roses – 1: 1
At serve Ruud it gets a little tighter for the first time. The Norwegian has to go beyond debut. But then the return Ruusuvuoris sails out. And then Ruud determines the game from the baseline, distributes the balls nicely and forces his opponent to make mistakes. 3:2 for the favorite.
11:20 Sacrifice – Mount Ruth – Mount of Roses – 1: 1

INFO – Ruud – Rose Mountain
Casper Ruud has to deal with a treacherous task in round two. The Norwegian meets Emil Ruusuvuori from Finland. The previous two encounters clearly went to Ruud, but his opponent was in good form in Rome and Munich.
