The Jannik Sinner of Italy (N.11), sent his third round against Mcdonald (60th in the world) in three sets (6-3, 7-6 (8/6), and 6-3). Sinner saved 11 set points in his second set to win the tie-break.

For Iga Swiatek, the world's No.1 player, it's an easy walk in the park. After just two rounds, the Pole was able to qualify for round 16 by defeating Danka Kovinic in sets of 6-3 and 7-5. If Alize Cornet wins, she could be facing her.
Leolia Jeanjean was not able to take the step. On Saturday, the Frenchwoman who wrote the most beautiful Roland-Garros story, Leolia Jeanjean, was defeated by Irina Camelia Begu, 6-1, and 6-4. Jeanjean's record, which had knocked down world No.8 Karolina Piliskova, did not surprise Begu. She was ranked 63rd. Leolia Jeanjean, who ranks 227th in the world and is a Cinderella of Porte d'Auteuil, looked at Begu as if it was midnight.
End of the third round at the male and female tables. Daniil Medvedev and Stefanos Tsitsipas are the expected headliners. Alize Cornet, Gilles Simon from Marin Cilic, and Hugo Gaston will be the French headliners.
