Find here all of our live #ROLAND_GARROS

17h22 : If you have ever done Czech LV2, we are interested in the translation of what Barbora Krejcikova wrote on the camera after her victory.

17h20 : It might not be the best song to turn the mood up, but singer Barbara Pravi performs her title here, arrived 2nd in Eurovision a few weeks ago, in the stands of the Central.

17h13 : Questioned at the microphone, the new queen of the Porte d’Auteuil struggles to contain her emotion. “I am super happy”, she manages to declare.

17h10 : It ended on a ball out which made the public of the Chatrier hesitate: the Czech Barbora Krejcikova won her first Grand Slam title against Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova (6-1, 2-6, 6-4) in a little less than two hours of play.

17h08 : Hello Pierre, it may be due to the fact that it is in 3 sets as you rightly said in an article: with the tension, it is hard to get into the match. And 2 winning sets, it’s quick and it doesn’t leave the time to change the match.

17h06 : Barbora Krejcikova’s turn to serve to win the match. The Czech is (normally) almost unplayable in a third set.

17h03 : The Czech struggles, but that’s not enough: Pavlyuchenkova saves two match points on her serve!

17h00 : The Czech Krejcikova now leads 5-3, and is only three small points from the supreme coronation!

17h01 : As you go! Admittedly, we don’t have the formidable generation of Steffi Graf, Monica Seles etc … but we saw hyper-contested semi-finals which ended with a 9-7 in the third set. On the other hand, this final, without being one-sided, is a little disappointing in terms of the game.

And of course the premiums are aligned on the same amounts for men and women …

16h58 : Who will finally dare to say that women’s tennis is appallingly poor !!! I could be wrong but is it true that the winner perceives as much as the winner of the men’s tournament?

16h56 : We are not going to lie to each other, even if the two players will make a superb winner at Roland Garros, on an emotional level, it has nothing to do with last night.

16h50 : We arrive in the money-time of this somewhat disjointed final. It is “Nastia” Pavlyuchenkova who leads the score, but Barbora Krejcikova serves to pick up at 3-3 in the third set. Note that we did not have a riot of anthology points in this final, even if the variety of the game of the Czech makes the meeting pleasant to follow.

16h44 : We invite you to review the best points of the junior doubles final won by the French Fils and Mpetshi-Perricard. Treat yourself !


16h25 : We will therefore be entitled to a decisive third round at Roland Garros, since “Nastia” Pavlyuchenkova won the second round 6-2.

16h21 : Long medical break in this final, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova was treated for a long time while she leads 5-2 in the second set.

16h10 : 6-1, 1-5, you get the idea of ​​the Pavlyuchenkova climb which is underway on the Chatrier 🙂

16h05 : It is time for me to leave you in the company of my colleague Pierre Godon, already fully in the ladies’ final. I’ll meet you tomorrow at 9 a.m.

16h00 : Fortunately there are the mouflets to save the honor of French tennis at Roland-Garros. French pair Arthur Fils – Giovanni Mpetshi-Perricard won the junior doubles final by beating Martin Katz -German Samofalov, 7-5, 6-2.

15h57 : Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova is playing the roller coaster in this game! After a cataclysmic start, where it almost looked like Anastasia had been anesthetized, the Russian recovered and broke her opponent at the start of the second round (1-6, 2-0).

15h43 : 6-1 for Barbora Krejcikova who therefore folded this first round at lightning speed. And as “Nastia” Pavlyuchenkova begins her service game with a double fault, we will undoubtedly be able to watch the end of Wales-Switzerland.

3:38 p.m. : Barbora Krejcikova serves to win the first set when we have only been playing for half an hour, I think we will not have a curfew problem today! 5-1 for the Czech who is currently teaching his opponent a tennis lesson.

15h33 : Barbora Krejčíková takes off in this first set and leads 3-1 against her Russian rival, thanks in particular to the variety of her shots. Justine Hénin had detailed this style opposition to our comrades from franceinfo sport this morning: “Pavlyuchenkova develops a lot of power, with very clear and heavy kicks that hurt on this clay. This is her number one physical quality as Krejcikova will express herself differently, with a lot of variation in the pace.

15h20 : The two players in turn lose their face-off (1-1). The public has not yet chosen its camp, we feel that it is waiting to get an idea before supporting one player more than the other.

15h12 : @Curieuse There was only one exception, for France-Bulgaria where many caregivers were invited last week. We can not really say that football had a preferential treatment compared to the little yellow ball.

15h12 : Hello FI! First of all, a huge thank you for allowing us to experience this magnificent Djokovic vs Nadal match live at night on France 3! 🤩🙏✨I take this opportunity to tell the dissatisfied that keeping the public until the end, it also concerned each viewer: it was heartbreaking to imagine a camera, because the interruption of the match, reshuffling cards and atmosphere of lead, for the players and for us, at home. So it was not just a handful of privileged people, but millions of viewers of a public channel who loved this exemption! Having said that, I appeal to your legendary memory: it seems to me that several football matches, even during the curfew at 9 p.m., were allowed to receive visitors. Besides, this audience had gathered in buses, then in a single stand, while last night we could see the spectators respecting the distances … Did that create such an outcry, then even that it does not seem to me that these were exceptional matches? Especially since yesterday, the exemption was given thanks to the Homeric beauty of the match, and not upstream as for football? Football vs Tennis, 2 weights 2 measures in the collective reaction? Or am I just not very objective? Thank you for everything, I hope you will have time to answer me, and good luck! 😉

15h09 : The two players have just entered the court, we necessarily feel a little tense given the stakes. If you are stuck in a meeting with friends that goes on forever, you can take a look at france.tv to see the pictures, but if you are polite you can just read this live and pretend to receive text messages in mess.

14h58 : Little tip at home, this dear Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova is nicknamed “Pav”, I won’t hide from you that for the sake of brevity, I might use it a couple of times. However, I did not find any trace of a small nickname for Barbora Krejčíková, which I will therefore not venture to call “Krej”.

14h51 : Definitely very busy commenting on sports news between two scientific experiments, Thomas Pesquet has a little word for the two finalists of Roland-Garros.

14h50 : The Czech Barbora Krejčíková, 25, is the latest product of a country that reigns in women’s tennis with a dozen players in the top 100. She has so far only one WTA title, won this year in Strasbourg just before Roland-Garros.

14h47 : Russian Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, who was predicted to have a great career when she landed on the circuit a dozen years ago, will have waited 52 Grand Slam tournaments before playing her first final, a record. The path “was long, with a lot of ups and downs”, she admitted as the final approached.

14h46 : The Roland-Garros ladies final therefore opposes Barbora Krejčíková à Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova. Besides Scrabble fans (two words count triple), tennis fans will be delighted with an unexpected poster. PFor the sixth time in a row, the victorious Roland-Garros player will get her first Grand Slam there (Muguruza in 2016, Ostapenko in 2017, Halep in 2018, Barty in 2019 and Swiatek in 2020).

• Political and union activists, environmental activists and associations from various sectors march together in many cities in France to denounce “attacks on freedoms” which multiply according to them thanks to the rise of the extreme right and laws “liberticides”.

• The leaders of the great powers of the G7 get into the heart of the matter today by tackling the prevention of health crises and the defense of multilateralism. The more equitable sharing of vaccines against Covid-19 will particularly occupy heads of state.
