Seed number 29, Ugo Humbert lost at the outset in the first round against Ricardas Berankis (6-4, 6-4, 2-6, 6-4). The current 32nd in the ATP ranking still does not arrive at Roland-Garros.
It’s already the end for Ugo Humbert. The number 2 seed among the French lost out on Tuesday afternoon against Ricardas Berankis (6-4, 6-4, 2-6, 6-4). The current 32nd in the ATP ranking has not reconciled with the clay courts at Roland Garros and is already taking the door.

The kick-off slightly delayed because of the presence of a suspicious vehicle in front of the Simonne-Mathieu court, Ugo Humbert started his meeting badly by being broken from the start by his Lithuanian counterpart.
The Frenchman has never been able to pick up the score and let the first round slip away. The second set was not much better, even if Ugo Humbert believed he could gain the upper hand on several occasions. But Ricardas Berankis did not let it go and broke in stride, offering the second set and taking a serious option on qualifying for the next round.
Ugo Humbert returned with better intentions on the court in the third set, disposing of the Lithuanian and hoping for a wild comeback. But his opponent of the day will destroy the hopes of the Frenchman in the last round, after a battle that will have lasted 3 hours in total.
New disappointment for Humbert at Roland-Garros
Ugo Humbert did not reconcile with ocher this Tuesday afternoon. As in the two previous editions, the Frenchman bowed out at Roland Garros, on a surface that did not succeed.
The current 32nd in the ATP standings approached the tournament without much confidence, having won only one small match this year on clay. Faced with an opponent more experienced than him, Ugo Humbert failed to match the weight.
The French do not succeed and the young player of 22 years does not come to redress the very sad record of his friends yesterday, with the only victory of Enzo Couacaud while Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Pierre-Hugues Herbert or Benoît Paire are are also inclined for their entry into contention on Monday. In the second round, Ricardas Berankis will face the Italian Caruso or the Australian Duckworth.
