Paris — Lookahead to Tuesday
Daniil Medvedev arrived in Paris with a lifetime record of 0-4 at the French Open, but he is 4-0 this year and reached the quarterfinals on Tuesday night against Stefanos Tsitsipas. Medvedev is the No.2-seeded and two-time Grand Slam finalist at the 2019 US Open and this year’s Australian Open. But 5 seed Tsitsipas has been playing well and is entering the quarterfinals for the second consecutive year. The other men’s match will be between No. 6 Alexander Zverev and Alejandro Davydovich Fokina of Spain, who is playing his first major quarter-final. Elena Rybakina, who upset Serena Williams in the fourth round, will now take on her doubles partner Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova. Rybakina hasn’t missed a set en route to her first quarterfinal in a Major, while Pavlyuchenkova is playing in the quarters at Roland Garros for the first time in a decade. The second match featured two unseeded players competing in their first Grand Slam quarter-finals – Paula Badosa of Spain and Tamara Zidansek of Slovenia.
