Roland-Garros Day 1 - An Action Packed day!

Roland-Garros 2024 - Men's Singles Results

The first day at Roland-Garros was very interesting with several highly competitive matches.


Stan Wawrinka def. Andy Murray 6-4, 6-4, 6-2

The featured match of the day was a showdown between two veterans that could have been a Grand Slam final a few years ago, the Murray-Wawrinka duel. A match more exciting on paper than in practice, unfortunately, as Murray was never really in the game, being a step too slow on several balls. Nevertheless, we still witnessed some classic rallies and a few magnificent backhands from the Swiss player.


Kei Nishikori def. Gabriel Diallo 7-5, 7-6, 3-6, 1-6, 7-5

A classic "Nishikori-style" match in 5 sets. It was the first Roland-Garros for the Japanese player since 2021, and he played an honest match against the young Canadian qualifier. Although he is also far from his best years, it is always interesting to see him perform when he is healthy.


Richard Gasquet def. Borna Coric 7-6, 7-6, 6-4

The French veteran delighted the crowd with a superb performance against Borna Coric. Although there could have been concerns about his energy level if the match had extended to five sets, Gasquet used his topspin brilliantly and qualified for the second round, to the great pleasure of the Parisian crowd.


Daniel Altmaier def. Laslo Djere 7-5, 6-4, 6-7, 5-7, 7-6

What a match to close out the first day of this Roland-Garros 2024. Altmaier needed 6 match points to finally overcome Laslo Djere, who seemed to have no energy left in his legs in the super tiebreak of the 5th set. A match that ended in the early hours of the French morning after a grueling 5 hours and 5 minutes of play.
