French Open 2024: Gauff, Sinner, Swiatek and more in action on day six – live

Estimated read time 2 min read

Liudmila Samsonova (17) v Elisabetta Cocciaretto is first up on Suzanne Lenglen. They are warming up now. Samsonova, as a Russian, is playing under a neutral flag and dispatched Amanda Anisimova in straight sets yesterday. Cocciaretto is ranked 51 in the world and beat Cristina Bucsa of Romania in the previous round.

Persistent Parisian rain has seen organisers scrambling to make up for lost time this week. In the event, all the second-round singles matches were completed last night, so today’s play did not start as early as some of us thought it might. But there is still a packed third-round schedule in Paris today.

Iga Swiatek, Coco Gauff, Ons Jabeur and Marketa Vondrousova will all be on court in the women’s singles, while in the men’s draw Carlos Alcaraz, Jannik Sinner, Hubert Hurkacz and Grigor Dimitrov are among the notable names in action.

Gauff, seeded No 3, will kick things off on Court Philippe-Chatrier against Dayana Yastremska of Ukraine (ranked 32) from 11am BST/12pm CET. In the men’s singles Andrey Rublev, the sixth seed, is scheduled to begin against Matteo Arnaldi of Italy (ranked 35) on Court Suzanne Lenglen from 11.15 BST.

Exciting times await, not to mention a dizzying number of matches to try and keep up with. Allez!
