Roland Garros 2018: Nadal tested and Serena looking rested on a showery Day 3

My fourth visit to RG will probably surface in TRAVEL at a later date, so for now a round up of yesterday’s action


Serena’s return and that catsuit was always going to be the big story (a good comeback test as it turned out). But Sharapova came through a battle of her own in fine style whilst Muguruza looked very strong against a dangerous unseeded Kuznetsova.

Kerber, Stosur, Garcia, Bertens, Barty and Goerges (Julia) all looked good too, if not quite showing title-winning form.


The loss of Jack Sock aside, the men’s results went as expected. Nadal was given a stern examination by Bollelli in that third set hangover from Monday, and it was no surprise when Mahut gave DelPo a few issues early on.

Elsewhere though it was plain sailing for Cilic, Shapovalov, Isner, Anderson, Fognini and Britain’s Kyle Edmund, cementing his reputation as anything but a stop-gap during Sir Andy’s absence.

Day 4 summary tonight.
