Posting this video, since it is Nadal's birthday, and seeing Fritz getting boo'd by the crowd, bringing back when Nadal faced the most hostile environment in his grand slam career. Only 18 years old, he faced a 9 minute delay after being boo'd and jeered from the French crowd while playing French #1 Grosjean after beating Gasquet in the previous round.

Bianca is on court and down a break early to Tsurenko.

Now down a double break - Tsurenko is playing well and Bianca to be honest looks a little low on energy at the moment.

Edit: Tsurenko takes the opening set 6-1. Bianca needs to flush that one away and start mixing things up with height and pace of shot, right now Tsurenko is just on fire and not missing.

Bianca breaks at love to open the second set.

Edit: Unable to consolidate though.

Welp, that was a comprehensive butt-kicking by Tsurenko. 6-1 6-1 and Bianca just couldn't get going today.

Can’t wait for his first victory and a return of:

Another game for Milos!

Also, unfortunate end to our remaining Canadian in singles.

But don’t think she had any home against Iga, so just bows out one round early.

Better than expected for Bianca. Stay healthy now please.

Bianca and Gaby are still alive in mixed doubles although we are going to lose one of Leylah or Gaby in women's doubles as they face each other (with their respective partners) on Monday.

Charlie makes quick work of a tricky opponent in Mussetti. Getting closer to the most anticipated match at Roland Garros since a 19 year old Nadal played Federer in the semis almost 20 years ago.

As far as the rankings are concerned, this would be considered an upset, but as far as current form is concerned, it would not be that big of a surprise to see Jarry beat Ruud on Monday (Jarry is my pick). I also think Cerundolo will give Rune all he can handle and I think that match is going the distance.

If Djokovic does play Alcaraz on Friday, who is the favorite? Outside of playing Nadal at the French Open, when was the last time Djokovic was an underdog at a Grand Slam match?

I actually think Zverev is making the finals from the bottom half of the draw

I'm going with an Alcaraz vs Ruud final. Musseti hadn't lost a set all tournament and Alcaraz made him look like Shapo. I think he's on another level right now compared to even Novak. Ruud isn't sexy but if be can beat Rune he will cruise to the final.

Well, my Jarry pick is looking pretty bad right about now. The funny thing is he had a lead in each of the first three sets and it looks like he's going to lose in straight sets.

Meanwhile, Leylah/Taylor advance over Gaby/Luisa in women's doubles in what can be considered an upset as far as rankings are concerned. Gaby still alive in mixed doubles (as is Bianca).

Cerundolo have evened up his match with Holger at 1 set each.

We're going to have to bring in challenges to tennis if umpires can't see clear double bounces. Cerundolo very hard done by just now.

Edit: Of course, Rune could have awarded the point to Francisco by letting the umpire know that it was a double bounce.
