Zverev suffers against Millman and Fognini in a derby beats Seppi

Alexander Zverev needed five sets to win Millman (7-6 (4), 6-3, 2-6, 6-7 (5) and 6-3). Fognini beat his Italian compatriot Seppi 6-3, 6-0, 3-6 and 6-3).

Alexander Zverev was close to adding another disappointment to his poor record in Grand Slams, but he kept calm to win in a match in which John Millman, that Australian who eliminated Federer in the last US Open, put him on the ropes and forced him to play a fifth set: 7-6 (4), 6-3, 2-6, 6-7 (5) and 6-3 in 4h: 08. The German, who placed 57 winners (17 of direct serve) but also added 73 unforced errors, had to be used thoroughly to overcome the elusive and physically powerful Millman. In the second round, Sascha will face Swedish Mikael Ymer, who won Slovenian Rola 6-0, 6-3, 7-6 (5) .

Free problems that Zverev had Fognini to advance against his compatriot Andreas Seppi. The ninth favorite, he won by 6-3, 6-0, 3-6 and 6-3 in 2h: 21. It was the eighth Italian derby in the history of Roland Garros and Fognini undid the tie to four in particular duels. With 78% of points won with first serves and six breaks, he dominated his Davis Cup teammate and in the second round he will face Federico Delbonis.

Kyle Edmund (28th) closed his victory against Jeremy Chardy in a match that was postponed on Monday for lack of light and that ended on Tuesday with the marker favorable to the British 7-6 (1), 5-7, 6-4, 4-6 and 7-5. Edmund will now face the Uruguayan Pablo Cuevas.
