Today's Result: loss to Julien Benneteau (32nd, France) in four sets

Fognini matched his Roland Garros result by reaching the third round, his best showing in a Slam.

The junior tournament began today. The last junior girls' champion to also win the women's title was Amelie Mauresmo who won the juniors in 1996 and the seniors in 2006. The last to do it on the men's side is none other than Roger Federer - big surprise. Fed won the junior title in 1998 and the first of his senior titles in 2003.

Catching Up with Old Friends

Tobias Kamke (Curtain Call, Roland Garros Day 4)
- Kamke went through qualifying to reach the main draw. His third round effort is his best Slam performance. Sadly, he was no match for Jo-Wilfred Tsonga (10th, France).
