Anna Kalinskaya and Jannik Sinner definitely seem to be a thing as the Russian tennis star was spotted in the stands following the Italian's opening match at the French Open. 

On Monday, world No. 2 Sinner kicked off his French Open by playing against USA's Christopher Eubanks on Court Suzanne Lenglen. Kalinskaya, ranked at No. 25 in the world, was also in the stands as Sinner went on to claim a routine 6-3 6-3 6-4 win. 

For weeks, there have been rumors that Sinner split with his ex-girlfriend Maria Braccini and that he is now dating Kalinskaya, who was dating Nick Kyrgios in the past. A few days before the start of the French Open, Kalinskaya and Sinner were pictured dining at a Parisian restaurant, which further sparked the rumors of the two dating.

Early in the first set, Sinner went up by a double break and opened a 4-1 lead - Eubanks managed to get one break back in the sixth game - but the Italian kept his focus and broke the American again in the ninth game to still routinely seal the opener.

After winning the first set, Sinner also made a rapid start to the second set as he won the opening three games. Serving for the set in the ninth game, Sinner experienced some problems but he managed to save three break points before converting his first set point to go up by two sets.

Up by two sets, Sinner also broke Eubanks in the third game of the third set. Leading comfortably, Sinner missed out on his first match point on Eubank's serve in the ninth game but realized second match point on his serve in the following game.

For a place in the French Open third round, Sinner will play against Richard Gasquet. 

It will be interesting to see if Kalinskaya also comes to watch Sinner's next French Open match.
