Roland Garros 2020 – Day 1 final results

.

ROLAND GARROS – The first round of Roland Garros has a Sunday start, and is spread over the first three days of the tournament.

And so there are some marquee matchups from the start – including Stan Wawrinka vs. Andy Murray to close off the Court Philippe-Chatrier schedule. And Sinner vs. Goffin. And Konta vs. Gauff.

 

It takes skill to put on a new overgrip in the wind. But Andy Murray is just the man to do it. (Stephanie Myles/OpenCourt.ca)
