Top-seeded Novak Djokovic carries a 24-match Grand Slam winning streak into his third-round match against Salvatore Caruso, a qualifier from Italy who is ranked 147th. There’s no doubt who the favorite is, of course. Not only has Djokovic never lost to someone ranked as low as Caruso at a major, but Caruso had never won a match at a major until this week. Two younger contenders are in action: No. 4 Dominic Thiem, last year’s runner-up, faces Pablo Cuevas, while No. 5 Alexander Zverev, a quarterfinalist in 2018, meets No. 30 Dusan Lajovic. The women’s schedule features No. 1 Naomi Osaka, defending champion Simona Halep and 23-time major title winner Serena Williams, who plays against 20-year-old American Sofia Kenin.
6-0 — Muguruza’s record in third-round matches at Roland Garros; she was the 2016 champion.
QUOTE OF THE DAY
“For me, the first goal has been reached by getting this deep into the tournament, and knowing where the game’s at, knowing where the fitness is, the mind.” — Federer, on making it to the fourth round in his first French Open since 2015.
