The Argentinian defeated the number 9 seed on Saturday in the third round (3-6, 6-3, 6-4, 7-5).
The reception given to Taylor Fritz after being taken to task by the public at Roland-Garros during his second round against Arthur Rinderknech was particularly scrutinized. His entry was made under the whistles, but not his presentation by the announcer. But the meeting hung against Francisco Cerundolo on the Suzanne-Lenglen court also kept all its promises, Saturday June 3. In front after a first set concluded with an ace, the American then showed feverishness, losing in four sets (3-6, 6-3, 6-4, 7-5).
Francisco Cerundolo (seed number 23) finally toppled the pecking order after saving a set point from world number 8 in the fourth set. For his first career Grand Slam round of 16, the Argentinian will join Holger Rune, an easy winner over compatriot Genaro Alberto Olivieri earlier in the day.
