    On court today…

•   In the first men’s match of the day on Court Philippe-Chatrier, 2-time Roland Garros finalist Dominic Thiem takes
    on Pablo Andujar, with the No. 4 seed aiming to maintain his perfect record against the Spaniard. Thiem has won
    all 3 matches he has played against Andujar, all of which have come on clay courts – and the Austrian has never
    lost in the 1st round in his 7 previous Roland Garros appearances. Andujar defeated Roger Federer in Geneva
    earlier this month, but will need to be at the top of his game if he is to overcome the 2020 US Open champion and
    record a victory against a Top 5 player for the first time in his career.

•   In the final match of the day on Chatrier, No. 5 seed Stefanos Tsitsipas faces home favourite Jeremy Chardy, with
    the Frenchman bidding for an upset against a player who has won more matches than anyone else in 2021.
    Tsitsipas has recorded 33 victories so far this season, including 2 title-wins, on clay at Monte Carlo-1000 and
    Lyon. The Greek reached the semifinals here in the autumn and followed that up with another Grand Slam
    semifinal finish at the Australian Open in February – and he will be determined to get off to a good start as he
    looks to go at least one better this time round.

•   On Court Suzanne-Lenglen, No. 6 seed Alexander Zverev begins his campaign with a match-up against fellow
    German Oscar Otte, who successfully came through qualifying at a Grand Slam for the first time, having made 2
    appearances here as a lucky loser in 2018-19. It is the 14th all-German men’s singles match at Roland Garros in
    the Open Era. Zverev will hope for a smooth passage into the 2nd round – he has never lost to a player ranked
    as low as No. 152 Otte at the Grand Slams and has won both of his previous matches against qualifiers at Roland
    Garros.

•   Two unseeded Frenchmen face tricky encounters on Court Simonne-Mathieu today, with before Gilles Simon up
    against Marton Fucsovics before Corentin Moutet plays Laslo Djere. In both matches, the Frenchman is ranked
    lower than his opponent, and both Simon and Moutet will be hoping that the small number of fans allowed in the
    stadium will roar them on to wins. Moutet is looking to bounce back from a 1st round defeat here last year, when
    he fell to Lorenzo Giustino in a match that stretched beyond 6 hours and is the 4th-longest Grand Slam singles
    match on record. Simon, meanwhile, is aiming to record just his 3rd victory of the year and will need to rediscover
    some of the form that took him to the Top 10 in the world over a decade ago.

    A 4th meeting for Thiem and Andujar, but their first at a Grand Slam. All 3 of their previous meetings have come

    player to defeat Thiem here is No. 23 Pablo Cuevas in the 2nd round in 2015. He has lost Grand Slam matches
    to players ranked as low as Andujar on 6 occasions – most recently at 2019 US Open when he fell to No. 87
    Thomas Fabbiano in the 1st round.

•   THIEM is bidding to maintain his record of always reaching the 2nd round here. This is his 8th straight
    Roland Garros appearance and his 29th Grand Slam overall.

•   Last year here, Thiem reached the quarterfinals, where he fell to Diego Schwartzman in 5 sets. It was his earliest
    defeat here since 2015, when he fell to Pablo Cuevas in the 2nd round – he reached the semifinals in 2016-17

    Grand Slam finals.

    recovered from 0-2 down to defeat Ted Schroeder in 1949. He became the first new Grand Slam men’s singles

    Slam title.

•   Thiem is bidding to become first Austrian player – man or woman – in history to win multiple Grand Slam
    titles. Thomas Muster, who won the title here in 1995, is the only other Austrian player to have won a Grand Slam
