Taiwanese No. 1 Lu Yen-hsun recovered from a slow start to advance to the second
round of the French Open men’s singles at Roland Garros in Paris yesterday.
World No. 64 Lu recovered from losing the first set to defeat world No. 81 Blaz Kavcic of Slovenia 6-7(4/7), 6-1, 6-1, 7-5 in 3 hours, 1 minute on Court 17 at the second Grand Slam of the year.
In a first set which lasted 57 minutes, Kavcic broke Lu’s serve, only for the Taiwanese to break back and then save two set-point chances at 5-6, before the Slovenian went on to convert his second set-point opportunity of the tiebreaker. [FULL STORY]
