Mats Point: Wilander tells it straight on Day Four at Roland Garros

Mats Point: Wilander tells it straight on Day Four at Roland Garros

Tsonga, the 12th seed, lost the first three points on his serve Wednesday and managed to save the three match points. He is getting into the right place at the right time here...

The 21st-seeded Isner saved 6 of 8 break points that he faced Tuesday. The French crowd is well known for the atmosphere they're capable of creating at a tennis match. But he did well in that department against the 92nd-ranked Thompson.

Simona Halep is safely through to the second round of the French Open after beating Jana Cepelova of Slovakia in straight sets.

Djokovic beat Portugal's Joao Sousa 6-1, 6-4, 6-3 and Nadal defeated Robin Haase 6-1, 6-4, 6-3.

The French federation issued a statement criticizing Hamou's "reprehensible behavior with a journalist yesterday" and said its disputes commission will investigate the case "for improper conduct".

- Top-seeded Andy Murray beat Andrey Kuznetsov of Russian Federation 6-4, 4-6, 6-2, 6-0.

The seven-time Grand Slam champion underlined her enduring class by reaching this year's Australian Open final. "But, I mean, I'm not trying to show anybody, really, my frustration". "Here at the beginning of my career I struggled. And gave me the strength to finish it off".

"In fact, I think it was the best match I've seen at Roland Garros so far this year".

Juan Martin del Potro moved into the third round of the French Open when his opponent, Nicolas Almagro, stopped early in the third set because of an injured left knee, dropping to the court and bawling. "It was going to be crowdy", the 25-year-old Argentine said.

Laurent Lokoli did not do honor to his wild card at the French Open.

While he has got the better of some reasonable players, including Daniel Evans, he hasn't been anything approaching consistent and that's where Nadal will get the better of him in a canter. As Klizan came over to the Frenchman, Lokoli gestured to make it clear he didn't want to get near him.

Klizan was involved in a controversy in his previous match after Laurent Lokoli accused him of faking injuries during their match, and refused to shake his hand.

China warns of 'global consensus' on tackling climate change
But detractors, all Republicans and including chief strategist Steve Bannon and EPA head Pruitt, pushed him hard to leave. President Donald Trump has announced that he has chose to withdraw the USA from the Paris climate accord .

"He was not chasing drop shots and faked that his leg was hurting for more than two sets".

Performance of the day 2: "Novak Djokovic".

"Also with Rafa, who plays Nikoloz Basilashvili".

The match was suspended on Monday because of darkness after the players split the first two sets.

The seventh-seeded Cilic will next face either David Ferrer or Feliciano Lopez. "It was fantastic. This week was really exceptional with a full stadium at my every match".

- No. 3 Stan Wawrinka had a 6-2, 7-6, 6-3 win over Jozef Kovalik of Slovakia.

"I love being here and I love playing on this court", Williams said. "I'm feeling good, I'm playing good tennis and I'm happy to be back in Paris". He played the first set like he wanted play and lost 6-1.

PARIS French flair will grace the main Roland Garros showcourt on Thursday as Alize Cornet and 15th seed Gael Monfils seek to progress to the third round. In the victory, Basilashvili won 74 percent of his first serve points and 50 percent of his second serve points.

The 18th-seeded Kyrgios hit 20 aces on his way to the 6-3, 7-6 (4), 6-3 victory.

But in years to come visitors to the French Open will be able to sit down and watch elite level tennis before wandering amidst verdant and varied foliage.

Next up for Murray is Juan Martin del Potro.

Haase was beaten 6-1, 6-4, 6-3 by Nadal, who is bidding for an unprecedented 10th title at Roland Garros. Olivo converted the next one with a forehand cross-court victor to win 6-4.
