Iga Swiatek, always in her bubbles
Iga Swiatek continues to roll over his opponents in this fortnight. After passing a 6-0 to each of her victims in the first 2 rounds, the Pole did even better, with a “bicycle” against poor Xinyu Wang. For her first third round of a Major, the Chinese only managed to stay 51 minutes on the court against the world number 1 (6-0, 6-0).
Big concern for Swiatek, injured ten days before Roland-Garros

The double winner of Roland-Garros lived a very quiet Saturday, too perhaps, with no break point conceded, a total of 18 points out of 21 won behind her first ball, and devastating shots (21 winning shots) which left his opponent haggard.
After these 70th and 71st career bubbles inflicted (for a total of 21 6-0 in Grand Slam), Swiatek is firmly waiting for Ukrainian Lesia Tsurenko in the next round. The 66th in the world, qualified for the first time in her career in the second week of a Major, may have traumatized the winner of the US 2019, Bianca Andreescu (6-1, 6-1), this Saturday, she can do anything also tremble.
Gauff, to experience
Coco Gauff rarely has the opportunity to talk about her experience on the circuit. Although she is already playing her 17th Grand Slam at Roland-Garros, the American is only 19 years old. This Saturday on the court, however, she was the oldest, and by quite a distance, since Mrira Andreeva is only 16 years old. And we can say that the Russian has shown her age in this 3rd round on the Suzanne-Lenglen since winning the first set was not enough and she left her match in stride (6-7, 6- 1, 6-1).

Andreeva has also come close to disqualification by sending, in rage, a ball in the public after missing two set points in the tie-break of the 1st round. Finally victorious in this decisive game, the Russian did not manage to maintain the intensity which was hers. The more experienced Gauff was quick to take advantage of this and finally unwound, especially in the third run. She will face Anna Karolina Schmiedlova or her compatriot, Kayla Day, in the round of 16.
Sabalenka is gone, but Swiatek has a score to settle with Rybakina
