French Open – Day 7

The 4th round is beckoning as day 7 came to a close. Day 7 saw the loss of the 5th seeded, Svitolina, which means that only 3 of the top 10 seeds are still in. Who is going to win the ladies draw? On the males side, the big 3 once again looked solid as Nadal, Djokovic and Federer came through their matches. Sadly for Federer fans, the intense 7-6; 6-7; 7-6 ;7-5 victory took a lot out the 39 year old and he is considering withdrawing so he can hopefully win Wimbledon 1 more time. The other long match was between the 2 Italians, Cecchinato and Musetti. Musetti managing to come through in 5 sets. His first main draw in a grand slam and he finds himself in the 4th round. Amazing stuff!!

On the fantasy side, Alcaraz and Norrie were the only 2 male picks to lose and Svitolina, Mertens, Brady, Muchova and Linette were the 5 ladies picks to lose.

Our leader ‘Ronan the Man’ opens his lead over the competition. ‘Romain Soula’ and ‘Oh My Hat’ now sitting behind. Round 3 wasn’t good for ‘Servivors’ and ‘Vamos Allez’ as they are further down than when they started round 3. Here is the leaderboard after Round 3.
