Jordan Thompson has won his way through to the second round of the French Open with a hugely impressive win over Serbian Laslo Djere.
Thompson defeated the qualifier in straight sets, 6-3, 6-4, 7-5, to reach the second round of a Grand Slam for the first time.
The 22-year-old will now face big serving Croatian Ivo Karlovic in the second round, after the 27th seed defeated Spaniard Alberto Montanes 6-2, 7-6, 7-6.
“Having Lleyton Hewitt, one of my tennis heroes, on the sidelines was unbelievable,” Thompson said post match.
Fellow Aussie John Millman is currently locked in a tense battle with big serving American John Isner. Millman took the first set in a tiebreak, before losing the second, also in a tiebreak. However, bad light halted play at a set all.
Meanwhile, Sam Stosur's first round match was also halted due to bad light. Stosur took the first set 6-3, before her opponent Misaki Doi, fought back to lead 3-1 when play was stopped.
