Roland Garros day 7 recap: a cat named Rafa, perplexity and...

In the fourth round also Stefanos Tsitsipas, Andrey Rublev, Pablo Carreno-Busta and, in the women's singles, Petra Kvitova and the Australian Open champion Sofia Kenin.

Out Matteo Berrettini and Jelena Ostapenko. Kevin Anderson has expressed his opinion on Novak Djokovic and the PTPA, and his opinion appears not to be in favor of the Serbian. During the conference, the tennis player explained his reasons as follows: "Personally I believe that the two entities cannot coexist.

I feel that there are many things to improve and I have always said this. We have managed to achieve a lot within the structure, I feel like if the new management arrived and their vision from a certain point of view intrigues.

From the current board side I can say: We are supporting you but we are waiting for you to make it. As the weeks go by we hope to have a better understanding and idea to see what exactly this PTPA is. Obviously this new organization has several tennis players inside but how will it represent the players within the ATP Tour? We already have members of the Tennis Council representing us and therefore in this regard it is a situation still unknown to everyone."
