Visual Story: Alizé Cornet, Hugo Gaston, Leolia Jeanjean and Gilles Simon star on Roland Garros show courts


On Thursday at Roland Garros, four French players shined across three show courts. A visual story running down their winning moments:


Coming into Roland Garros, Leolia Jeanjean had never been ranked inside the Top 200 was making her main-draw debut at a Grand Slam event.v


Jeanjean made a major splash in the second round when she held in every service game…


… to take down No. 8 seed Karolina Pliskova, 6-2, 6-2, in 75 minutes on Court Simonne Mathieu.


In the afternoon, Hugo Gaston starred on Court Suzanne Lenglen…


… where he soared past Pedro Cachin 6-4, 6-2, 6-4…


… saving two break points in the final game to set a third-round meeting with Holger Rune.


On Court Philippe Chatrier, Gilles Simon backed up his five-set win over No. 16 seed Pablo Carreño Busta.


The beloved wild card only needed three sets today…


… recovering from failing to initially serve out the contest by holding off Steve Johnson’s late push, 7-5, 6-1, 7-6 (6).


The night-session featured another French fave, Alizé Cornet.


The Nice native posted a bagel to start against No. 13 seed Jelena Ostapenko…


… and bounced back from a shaky second set to oust the 2017 champion, 6-0, 1-6, 6-3.
