MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

RG ’24 – Day 3 men’s singles final results

ROLAND GARROS – No. 1 Novak Djokovic and No. 7 Casper Ruud were the only top-10 seeds who saw action on the final day of the first-round schedule.

Djokovic got through in straight sets against Pierre-Hugue Herbert, although it wasn’t emphatic.

Holger Rune vs. Dan Evans wasn’t quite as good as it might have been.

And we saw … Pablo Carreño Busta!

Carreño Busta hadn’t played since a Challenger in Malaga, Spain in Oct. 2023. And he’d played just four matches since the 2023 Australian Open. He won the first set against a very in-form opponent, but in the end fell in four.
