Defending Champ and Local Star Excel on Red Clay
Stan the Man is into his second consecutive Roland Garros quarterfinal, where he will meet Albert Ramos-Vinolas of Spain. They met two weeks ago in the second round of the Banque Eric Sturdza Geneva Open, where Stan won 6-1, 6-1. Stan would go on to win the tournament, earning his first ATP World Tour title in his homeland. Stan holds a 6-0 record against the Spaniard, winning four of those matches in straight sets.
Meanwhile, local star Pierre-Hugues is into the third round of men’s doubles with Nicolas Mahut. The French pair and No. 1 seeds will face Spanish pair Feliciano Lopez and Marc Lopez, their gazes fixed on their first Roland Garros title.
Pierre-Hugues is also into the mixed doubles quarterfinal with French Kristina Mladenovic as the No. 3 seeds. They are up against the No. 8 seeds from the US, CoCo Vandeweghe (EZONE DR 98) and Bob Bryan.
Keep your eyes peeled for more action as this year’s Roland Garros continues.
