Krejčíková improved her grand slam maximum in singles by advancing to the third round. The ninth debutist of the world will play with Bulgarian Cvetana Pironkovová, who got a wild card in the competition in Paris clay and had time off in the second round because the American Serena Wlliams did not start the match due to an injured Achilles tendon.
Siniak will try to equalize her best grand slam result from last year’s Paris by advancing to the fourth round. He has to catch the fifth seeded Kiki Bertens from the Netherlands, who finished the last match in convulsions.
Květa Peschkeová and Demi Schuursová from the Netherlands became the first eight-finalists in doubles. The tournament six defeated the American-Australian pair Alison Riske, Ajla Tomljanovicová 6: 4 and 6: 3 in the 2nd round.
