In the quarterfinals of 2015, Kei Nishikori saw his dream of reaching the semifinals of Roland Garros was truncated by a Frenchman who at that time was top-20, Jo-Wilfred Tsonga. Four years later, the Japanese have avenged him by appearing in the second round and with comeback (4-6, 6-4, 6-4 and 6-4) . He did it shortly after the locals Richard Gasquet and Kristina Mladenovic fell. Luckily, Corentin Moutet had won before Guido Pella. But the day was not going well for the bleus.

Nishikori, expert ground player, made it worse and will face in the third round the Serbian Laslo Djere, who could with the Australian guest Alexei Popyrin (6-4, 7-6 (4) and 6-4). Tsonga missed the match due to the multiple unforced errors (50) .

Stan Wawrinka, champion in 2015 and finalist in 2017, also went into the third round when he beat Christian Garín with an unexpected facility, which was one of the The best season I had done on land this year, with two titles included. The Swiss won by 6-1, 6-4 and 6-0 in 1h: 40 and left the Chilean sunken, who did not "expect to win, but play better and, at least, compete". Wawrinka will now turn his attention to Dimitrov, who went back to the 11th favorite, Cilic, in a long, beautiful and competitive match that went to the fifth set: 6-7 (3), 6-4, 4-6, 7-6 (2) and 6-3 in 4h: 23.
