I feel empty,” Moutet said.The longest match at Roland Garros remains the 2004 first-round encounter between Spaniard Fabrice Santoro and Frenchman Arnaud Clement, which lasted six hours and 33 minutes.Of course, that is some way off the Wimbledon encounter between John Isner and Nicolas Mahut in 2010 – the longest tennis match ever, which took 11 hours and five minutes and was played over three days.What was remarkable about Italian world number 157 Giustino’s win was that this was his first in a Grand Slam main draw, and he had also lost his previous four matches on the main tour.Giustino will play Argentine 12th seed Diego Schwartzman in the next round.French Open Highlights: Serena, Nadal cruise to 2nd round, 4th seed Medvedev oustedSerena Williams began her quest for a 24th Grand Slam singles title with a hard-fought win over Kristie Ahn in the French Open first round.Sixth seed Williams, who turned 39 on Saturday, overcame a rusty start to beat her fellow American 7-6 (7-3) 6-0.Once she came through a 74-minute opener, Williams began to play with more belief and clarity as she swept Ahn aside in a 27-minute second set.Williams will play Bulgaria’s Tsvetana Pironkova in the second round in Paris.Pironkova, 33, was handed a wildcard by Roland Garros organisers after a memorable run to the US Open quarter-finals – where she lost to Williams – in her first tournament since 2017 after giving birth.Pironkova set up the rematch with a 6-3 6-3 win over Germany’s Andrea Petkovic.French Open Day 2 Results : Nadal, Thiem cruise to 2nd roundSpain’s 12-time champion Rafael Nadal encountered few problems as he started the French Open with a three-set win over Belarusian Egor Gerasimov.Nadal, 34, wrapped up a 6-4 6-4 6-2 victory in two hours five minutes against the world number 83, who was making his main-draw debut in Paris.US Open champion Dominic Thiem also moved into the second round with a 6-4 6-3 6-3 win over Croatia’s Marin Cilic.French Open Day 2 Results: 4th seeded Medvedev & Kreber ousted in first roundDaniil Medvedev is now 0-4 for his career at the French Open.The runner-up at the U.S. Open last year and a semifinalist in New York this month failed yet again to win a match at Roland Garros.The fourth-seeded Russian lost to 63rd-ranked Marton Fucsovics 6-4, 7-6 (3), 2-6, 6-1.Medvedev was in a bad mood throughout, getting warned for an expletive, then being docked a point for smashing his racket in the second-set tiebreaker.That point came at 6-3 in the tiebreaker, so he lost that set. Fucsovics had been 0-14 against Top 10 opponents.Three-time Grand Slam champion Angelique Kerber lost in the first round of the French Open for the second straight year. The 18th-seeded German was beaten by 19-year-old Slovenian Kaja Juvan 6-3, 6-3.Where the fans catch the FRENCH OPEN 2020 LIVE BROADCAST & LIVE STREAMING?In the Indian Sub-Continent, French Open will be broadcasted LIVE on Star Sports 2 and Star Sports Select 2.The tournament will also be streamed LIVE on Disney+ Hotstar.Other than Tennis Fans can catch all the News Updates, Draws, Live Scores, schedules of the French Open on Insidesport.co YourBump15 Actors That Hollywood Banned For LifeYourBump|SponsoredSponsoredUndoDefinitionTime Was Not Kind To These 28 CelebritiesDefinition|SponsoredSponsoredUndoMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStory|SponsoredSponsoredUndoPost FunThese Twins Were Named “Most Beautiful In The World,” Wait Until You See Them TodayPost Fun|SponsoredSponsoredUndoDaily FunnyFemale Athlete Fails You Can’t Look Away FromDaily Funny|SponsoredSponsoredUndoPast Factory4 Sisters Take The Same Picture For 40 Years.
