Update French Open 2020 | Daniil Medvedev suffers fourth-straight first-round exit at Roland

Daniil Medvedev is now 0-4 for his career at the French Open.

The runner-up at the U.S. Open last year and a semifinalist in New York this month failed yet again to win a match at Roland Garros.

The fourth-seeded Russian lost to 63rd-ranked Marton Fucsovics 6-4, 7-6 (3), 2-6, 6-1.

Medvedev was in a bad mood throughout, getting warned for an expletive, then being docked a point for smashing his racket in the second-set tiebreaker.

That point came at 6-3 in the tiebreaker, so he lost that set.

Fucsovics had been 0-14 against Top 10 opponents.

Tennys Sandgren has won an 11-9 fifth set to become the seventh American man to reach the second round at this year’s French Open — the most in nearly a quarter-century.

Sandgren had been 0-3 at Roland Garros for his career until saving two match points and coming back to edge No. 29 seed Hubert Hurkacz of Poland 7-5, 2-6, 4-6, 7-6 (1), 11-9 over 4 1/2 hours in a match that ended a little past 11 p.m.

This is the first year that matches can be played that late in Paris because artificial lights have been installed on the courts.
