Félix-Auger-Aliassime, number 9 seed at Roland-Garros, beat Argentine Camilo Ugo Carabelli in three sets. For her part, Karen Khachanov needed four rounds to overtake Ugo Dellien and join Cameron Norrie, who defeated Jason Kubler.

Félix Auger-Aliassime continues his best career at Roland-Garros. While he had never done better than an elimination from his entry into the competition, “FAA” will be at the Porte d’Auteuil third-round event. That is why the number 9 seed took the best in three seasons over Camilo Ugo Carabelli. The start of the match was one-sided for the Canadian, who only had one breaking point to save and transformed the three he managed. Once this first set was over in less than 30 minutes, the debates were balanced but neither player was able to serve the other at the start of the second set. It didn’t take long for the sixth game to see how Félix Auger-Aliassime got carried away. Not without dismissing a break point, the world number 9 added to his first set seven. In the third round, “FAA” broke Camilo Ugo Carabelli in the third game before deploying his tennis. After losing three points in the first game in the service of the Argentine, Félix Auger-Aliassime ended the game with a final whitening (6-0, 6-3, 6-4 in 2:17 ‘). Filip Krajinovic will be the Canadian’s rival in the third round. The Serb beat the Croatian Borna Gojo in four sets (7-6, 6-2, 5-7, 6-1 in 3:06 ′).

Khachanov emerges from the Delian trap

The number 21 seed of the French Open, Karen Khachanov, will also be there for the third round. The Russian, in fact, has dominated Hugo Dellien in four rounds. On his favorite surface, the Bolivian scored first with the break to advance five days to two. Then, Karen Khachanov canceled her late service when the 90th in the world had a chance to complete the first set. What Hugo Dellien was capable of doing calmly, breaking through his rival again. The 25th in the world reacted from the start of the second set before seeing the Bolivian take three days everywhere … before losing the service again. More solid, Karen Khachanov did not miss the opportunity to return to a set everywhere. After an exchange of breaks in the seventh and eighth games, the third set ended in a one-way tie. In fact, if Hugo Dellien won the first point of his service, he gave up the next seven to find himself against the wall again. However, after ignoring a breaking point from the beginning, Karen Khachanov only needed one chance to take the Bolivian’s serve and fly to victory (4-6, 6-4, 7-6, 6-3 in 3:09 ′).

Norrie did not tremble

Karen Khachanov will have a lot to do in the third round of Roland-Garros. Precisely, the Russian will have to face Cameron Norrie. The Briton, No. 10 seed, dominated Australian Jason Kubler in three sets. The 160th in the world had the first two breaking points, but it was the 11th ranked ATP who hit first to advance five days to two. The second point of seven was good for Cameron Norrie. The latter struck in the second set. However, Jason Kubler responded quickly to pick up two games everywhere. However, the Briton regained the initiative and ended up taking the service of his rival to end the set with a final opening. Having to react, the Australian started the third set with his teeth to his teeth, turning his first breaking point into three days in nothing. A series to which Cameron Norrie responded immediately with … six games won in a row. Putting an end to the duel in his first match point (6-3, 6-4, 6-3 in 2h31 ‘), the 11th player in the world claims to match his best performance at the French Open with a classification for the third time.
