It's already the end of the second round and the French colony is not yet well supplied for the rest of the tournament.

On this Ascension holiday, conducive to thrilling the French in front of their TV, Gilles Simon and Léolia Jeanjean have, for different reasons, good heads of exploit.

The female poster of the evening

For the first time in this Roland-Garros 2022, honor to women in night-session.

With a good poster between the French Alizé Cornet and the Latvian Ostapenko, seeded n°13.

Our Alizé, who has only won one match since his quarter-final at the Australian Open, is not the favorite at all but in the nocturnal atmosphere of the Central, there is a real good chance to play.

Today's favorites

After struggling five sets against Musetti in the first round, Tsitsipas will try to do better this Thursday against the Czech Kolar, who beat Lucas Pouille.

The Greek must be reassured after a somewhat complicated start.

Quarter-finalist last year, Daniil Medvedev will open the day at Central against Serbian Laslo Djere.

Among the women, Iga Swiantek, a world number 1 who remains on an incredible series of 29 consecutive victories, would like to reach the bar of 30 against the American Lason Riske.

The French of the day

Five French people will be in the running this Ascension Thursday.

And three of them will have the honors of the Central.

Apart from Cornet-Ostapenko, Caroline Garcia will face the American Madison Keys.

A real good test for the Frenchwoman who is trying to get back to her best level.

The unsinkable Gilles Simon, heroic in the first round, will try to continue his last lap at Roland against the American Steve Johnson.

On the Lenglen, we still expect a crazy atmosphere with the expected showman Hugo Gaston against the unknown Argentinian Hugo Cachin.

Finally, Léolia Jeanjean will try to bend Plsikova on the Simonne Mathieu court.

Today's weather

We are not going to jump to the ceiling with the gray sky that we are told Thursday morning but at least, no rain expected;

It will be a little better with clearings in the afternoon but nothing to get carried away either.

Side temperatures, 14 degrees in the morning, 19 in the afternoon.

Good but not great.

The daring prediction of the day

His career is so improbable that we would like him to continue.

Proclaimed very great hope of French tennis at 12 years old, Léolia Jeanjean got lost on the way before returning to full light this year at 26 years old.

Unpredictable and very talented, she has the weapons to bend the Czech Pliskova, seeded n°8.

In any case, we wish him.
