Roland Garros Day 3 - Tsitsipas survives and Tsonga brings down the curtain

Day three at Roland Garros belonged to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Catherine, David and Matt discuss how he briefly rolled back the years against Casper Ruud before the moving scenes of his injury and retirement ceremony. How will he be remembered in tennis? Elsewhere, why can’t Lorenzo Musetti win from two sets up? How much fun was Hugo Gaston vs Alex de Minaur? Are the night sessions at Roland Garros working? And how disappointing is it that most players' views on Wimbledon are entirely self-interested?
