IANS logoIANS 06-06-2017

The central court was home to the match between Frenchwoman Kristina Mladenovic and Swiss Timea Bacsinszki, when the former lost the first set 4-6, followed by a 1-1 draw in the second set, reports Efe.

Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark was leading unseeded 19-year-old Jelena Ostapenko of Latvia 6-4, 2-5 at Suzanne Lenglen Court.

Work has already begun to cover the central court at the Roland Garros with a retractable roof, but is not expected to be completed until 2019.

When the two women's quarters are finished, two men's quarter-finals matches are scheduled between Spaniards Rafael Nadal, fourth seeded and nine times winner, and compatriot Pablo Carreo; and defending champion Novak Djokovic of Serbia and Austrian Dominic Thiem.
