Who knew that the weather would be such that two roofed courts would be unplayable – Louis Armstrong for the entire night?
But Mother Nature did allow: Leylah Fernandez is in the third round after defeating veteran Kaia Kanepi of Estonia.
Kanepi is twice her age, and won the junior French Open in … 2001. Twenty years ago. Fernandez won the same title in 2019.
