MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

RG ’24 – Day 1 women’s final results

ROLAND GARROS – Only two top-20 seeds in action on the first day: No. 9 Jelena Ostapenko and No. 18 Marta Kostyuk. Both got through.

But Naomi Osaka, whose tennis life has had plenty of drama in Paris, opens up Court Phlippe Chatrier against the Italian Lucia Bronzetti. and barely got through.

There are also three Wangs in action – two of them, the oft-confused Xiyu and Xinyu, back to back on the same court.

(Paris is 6 hours ahead of EDT)
