Roland Garros Day 2 - Familiar sights, but things feel different

Some familiar faces took to the court on day two, but that didn’t stop things feeling weird. Catherine, David and Matt convened to look back on those that won, those that lost, and where we go from here. 

  • Nadal is back, but how did he look? (4.00 - 12.00)
  • Serena soared, eventually. Her prospects discussed. (12.30 - 16.20)
  • Medvedev out, again. Will he ever conquer clay? (21.00 - 25.00)
  • Thiem looks the business, but his draw is tough. Help or hindrance? (27.30 - 31.00)
  • Svitolina, Bertens, Muguruza - who will come through? (35.00 - 40.00)
  • Giustino vs. Motet - 6 hours and 5 minutes of lovely chaos (45.30 - 47.00)
  • Kyrgios slams Wilander in defence of Murray. Yawn (47.00)
  • The definitive Marco Cecchinato pronunciation (49.00)
