Roland Garros Day 10 - Records, roars and routine wins

There are no night sessions at this year’s French Open, but that didn’t stop play on Day 10 finishing at 1:25am in Paris after an epic match between Diego Schwartzman and Dominic Thiem provided the “embouteillage” which Catherine predicted.

On the podcast, Catherine, David and Matt (1.00) discuss how Schwartzman’s nerves vs Thiem’s physical struggles made the match dramatic, the significance of Schwartzman’s victory, and whether or not Jannik Sinner provided Rafael Nadal with the test he required (21.00).

It was also a fascinating day in the women’s event, with Nadia Podoroska (47.00) 4breaking through and ending Elina Svitolina’s hopes of a first major, Danielle Collins (32.00) showing everyone what she’s all about with a feisty victory over Ons Jabeur, and Iga Swiatek (27.00) backing up her big win by ending Martina Trevisan’s run. All three results are covered in depth.
