Teenager Holger Rune has given Denmark a person within the fourth spherical at Roland Garros for the primary time in 63 years.
The 19-year-old Rune, who gained the French Open junior title three years in the past, closed out the third spherical of the principle draw by beating Hugo Gaston of France 6-3, 6-3, 6-3 at Courtroom Philippe Chatrier on Saturday evening.
Rune has not dropped a set up to now within the match.
He’s ranked a career-high fortieth and had by no means gained a Grand Slam match till beating 14th-seeded Denis Shapovalov in his Roland Garros debut this week.
No Danish man had made it this far in Paris since Kurt Nielsen and Torben Ulrich in 1959.
Rune will tackle 2021 French Open runner-up Stefanos Tsitsipas within the fourth spherical.
