The action at Roland Garros is underway on Day 9 with Daria Kasatkina playing Camila Giorgi in a fourth round match on the Suzanne Lenglen court.

Madison Keys is expected to open play on Philippe Chatrier Court against No. 29 Veronika Kudermetova.

Top-ranked Iga Swiatek will be aiming for a 32nd straight win when she takes on Zheng Qinwen. Swiatek is aiming to equal the third-longest winning streak on the women’s tour since 2000. Venus Williams tops that list with 35 in 2000, followed by Serena Williams with 34 in 2013 and Justine Henin with 32 in 2008.

In the men’s fourth round matches, 2021 runner-up Stefanos Tsitsipas will meet Denmark’s Holger Rune and US Open champion Daniil Medvedev will have an overnight match against 33-year-old US Open 2014 champion Marin Cilic.
