5 – Number of Top-10 wins Karolina Muchova has earned at the majors. The Czech improved to 8-11 lifetime with her 7-6(5), 7-5 win over No.8 seeded Maria Sakkari on Court Suzanne Lenglen on Day 1.

Muchova has now won four straight against the Top-10 at the Slams.

3 – Number of comebacks from two sets down achieved by Karen Khachanov. The Russian fought past Frenchman Constant Lestienne, 3-6, 1-6, 6-2, 6-1, 6-3. The No.11 seed is 3-18 lifetime when down two sets to love – he last came back from a two set hole against Jannik Sinner at the 2020 US Open (first round).

65 – Number of consecutive Grand Slams played by AlizĂ© Cornet. The Frenchwoman is the all-time women’s singles record holder in that category. She didn’t advance on Day 1, however – Cornet was defeated by Camila Giorgi, 6-3, 6-4.

50 – Stefanos Tsitsipas recorded his 50th career Grand Slam win, defeating Jiri Vesely, 7-5, 6-3, 4-6, 7-6(7), on Court Philippe-Chatrier. The Greek, a runner-up in Paris in 2021, improves to 19-6 lifetime at Roland-Garros. Tsitsipas now has 40 wins across the Australian Open (21-6) and Roland-Garros, but has only logged a total of ten wins at Wimbledon (5-5) and the US Open (5-5).

6-0 – The record of China’s Zheng Qinwen in the first round of Grand Slams. The Chinese 20-year-old, who reached the round of 16 in Paris last year, defeated former RG semifinalist Tamara Zidansek, 6-3, 6-1.

675 – France’s Lucas Pouille, who is currently in action against Jurij Rodionov on Court 14, is the lowest-ranked player at Roland-Garros this year. The former World No.10 qualified this year and is making his 10th appearance in Paris.

Pouille is the lowest-ranked player to win a match in Paris since 2013.
