Fallen Non-American Seeds

[7] Matteo Berrettini fell in straight sets to [186] Daniel Altmaier (GER).  I do not know much about this twenty-two-year-old German, but he is having the tournament of his life.

[8] Aryna Sabalenka lost in three sets to [30] Ons Jabeur from Tunisia.  The Tunisian is proving to be a force late in her career; if she can stay physically fit, she may pose a threat in the next round.  How far will she go?  I am curious, I have always admired her game.  I think that if she were fitter, she could seriously challenge for titles.  Her lack of fitness shows in the latter stages of matches and tournaments.  A pity her team does not address that aspect of her game.

[10] Roberto Bautista Agut lost to fellow Spaniard [17] Pablo Carreno Busta in four sets.

Korda Into 2nd Week Of French Open

American youngster, Sebastian Korda will play his idol, [2] Rafael Nadal, tomorrow.  How can Korda threaten the king of clay?  He is full of confidence and he has game, are those enough?  Nadal has already made it known he thinks these are the most difficult conditions he has ever played at Roland Garros, can Korda use this to his advantage or is Nadal’s spin too much for him to handle at this stage?
