The matches started Sunday on the clay court of Roland-Garros.

Among the French who entered the running: Gilles Simon, Corentin Moutet, Jérémy Chardy, Grégoire Barrère and Clara Burel.

But the big surprise came from the elimination of Dominic Thiem, world No. 4, beaten by Pablo Andujar.

Update on all the results of the day.

First day, first surprise at Roland-Garros.

Dominic Thiem, world number 4, took the front door, beaten by Pablo Andujar in five sets (4-6, 5-7, 6-3, 6-4, 6-4).

Quarter-finalist last year, the Austrian was also until the final in 2019 and 2018, but had dominated beaten by Rafael Nadal.

This time he didn't even have time to hope.

The Spaniard Pablo Andujar (35, 68th in the world) qualifies for the second round, two weeks after beating another star of the circuit: Roger Federer (admittedly very diminished).

Difficult entry also for the Tricolores.

Grégoire Barrère, Gilles Simon and the young Elsa Jacquemot (18) were eliminated.


- Roland-Garros: who are the favorites and the favorites of the 2021 edition?

Osaka victory but threat of sanctions

Naomi Osaka, world number 2, beat Romanian Patricia Maria Tig (6-4, 7-6).

For the Japanese, the bad news is extra-sporty.

She made an impression this week by announcing that she no longer wanted to participate in press conferences, in order to preserve her mental health.

Decision applied from Sunday: after his victory against Tig, Osaka did not appear in front of the media.

But the press conferences being obligatory for the players, the organization of Roland-Garros imposed on the world number 2 a fine of 15,000 dollars (approximately 12,300 euros). The Grand Slam organization, which manages the four major tournaments, has for its part been more severe: "We informed Naomi Osaka that if she continued to ignore her media obligations during the tournament, she would expose herself to other possible consequences of breaches of the Code of Conduct As you would expect, repeated breaches lead to more severe penalties, including exclusion from the tournament and the initiation of a major breach investigation which could lead to fines more important and future suspensions in Grand Slam.
