For the seventh time in the Open era, Italy has qualified two players for the round of 16 at Roland Garros. Lorenzo Sonego and Lorenzo Musetti will represent our country, having defeated Rublev and Norrie respectively. The feat of the day was mainly that of Sonego: the Turinian managed to beat the number 7 in the world at the end of a match that was at stake and despite two sets behind. Defeat on the field instead for Fabio Fognini, who had to surrender to the Austrian Sebastian Ofner after four hours of play.
