French Open 2020: Thiem routs Ruud, Halep and Nadal to follow – live!

Hello! Welcome to day 6 of our Roland Garros coverage as the tournament moves on to the third round. This will be some third round and there are many matches to keep an eye on. It has been raining in Paris this morning so play was briefly delayed on the outside courts and the roof is being used on Chatrier. US Open champion Dominic Thiem starts things off under the roof and he may well get his first test of the tournament as he takes on 21 year-old Norwegian Casper Ruud, who has been one of the breakout players on clay this season.

Immediately after, we will have a redux of last year’s stunning quarterfinal when 17 year-old Amanda Anisimova beat defending champion Simona Halep to reach the 2019 semi-final. Both players return under completely different circumstances, but both are playing well so it will be fascinating. Home favourite and former top 5 player Caroline Garcia will follow as she takes on Elise Mertens of France. Rafael Nadal will close Philippe Chatrier as he looks to continue his leisurely route through. Here is the schedule on singles courts today:
