Roland Garros Day 3 - New stars emerge, others come-of-age, some are as good as ever

On Day 3 of this mysterious French Open, there were plenty of reasons for it to feel more like a normal Grand Slam: epic matches, new stars emerging, familiar names winning, and results which left predictions in tatters. But Catherine, David and Matt still have a nagging sense that something isn't quite right.

  • Jelena Ostapenko. Remember her? (0-4 mins)
  • Clara Tauson breaks Brady’s heart (and more importantly, David’s) (5-9 mins)
  • Who is Clara Tauson, anyway? (9-12 minutes)
  • Danielle Collins - that’s how to deal with underarm serves (12-14 mins)
  • Sloane Stephens, Karolina Pliskova, Sofia Kenin (14-31 mins)
  • No Brits left in singles (31-33 mins)
  • Double-bounces - should you call them on yourself? (33-40 mins)
  • Imperious Djokovic (43-44 mins)
  • Tsitsipas, Rublev come-of-age-in-best-of-5 (44-54 mins)
  • Is it any less weird yet? (54-61 mins)
  • Spider-gate (61 mins to end)
