There were only three sets and just over two and a half hours of play in the second grand slam tennis tournament of the year for Mikael Ymer. The 24-year-old Swede lost clearly in the first round to 17th-seeded Italian Lorenzo Musetti (5-7, 2-6, 4-6).

Week 21 was thus no happy story for Sweden's highest ranked men's player. On Wednesday, Ymer lost his head completely during the ATP tournament in Lyon. After smashing the referee's chair in the eighth final against Frenchman Arthur Fils, he was both booed and dished.

The expert on the pictures of Ymer: "That is totally indefensible"

At the French Open, Italian Musetti, ranked 18th in the world, was simply the number too big. Ymer, 56th in the world rankings, will have to look up to new weeks and tournaments, while Musetti's tournament continues with a match against the winner of the meeting Aleksandr Shevchenko-Oscar Otte.

In the classic clay court tournament, two Swedish players remain. Big brother Elias Ymer will face Norwegian world number four Casper Ruud in the first round, while Rebecca Peterson will start against French qualifier Fiona Ferro.
