Last French competitor, Kristina Mladenovic took the door in less than an hour of play this Thursday at Roland Garros, sharply beaten by the Estonian Anette Kontaveit.
The last Frenchwoman still in contention at Roland Garros has been eliminated: Kristina Mladenovic (61st in the world) was sharply beaten on Thursday by the Estonian Anette Kontaveit (31st) in the second round (6-2, 6-0). After the elimination a little earlier in the day of Fiona Ferro, there is no longer any female tricolor representative in the table.
For the men, the last hopes of reaching the third round rest on the shoulders of Richard Gasquet, who faces in the night session Rafael Nadal, 13 times winner of Porte d’Auteuil.
Less than an hour on the court
Mladenovic is now five games lost against Kontaveit. In 2018, she had two match points in her favor on the clay court of Stuttgart against the Estonian. This Thursday, the Frenchwoman was very far from worrying the 31st world, who beat her in barely 53 minutes and with a “bubble” in the second round.
In the next round, Kontaveit will meet the winner of the meeting between defending champion Iga Swiatek and Sweden’s Rebecca Peterson (60th), scheduled for the early evening at Porte d’Auteuil.
