    BBC Sport at Roland Garros

    WTA world number one Iga Swiatek is back as a BBC Sport columnist at the French Open - and her second column of the tournament has landed.

    The 20-year-old from Poland, who won her first Grand Slam title at Roland Garros in 2020, is the heavy favourite at the clay-court major and goes into her second-round match on Thursday on a 29-game winning streak.

    The French Open favourite has been discussing online abuse, as well as advice from former world number one Ashleigh Barty.

    You can read that here.

  5. 'I was planning my holiday in Monaco'

    Zverev 2-6 4-6 6-1 6-2 7-5 Baez

    Alexander Zverev says: "I told Sebastian this is the worst you will ever feel on a tennis court, right now at this moment. I know how he feels as I lost the US Open final from being two sets up and was two points away.

    "Then the next season I won an Olympic Games gold medal so you always get better. He is an unbelievably great kid and he will do a lot of unbelievable things in this sport.

    "I couldn't have played any worse [at the start], I just tried to find a rhythm and did that. I'm happy still being in the tournament right now.

    "I was planning my holiday in Monaco, where I was going to go and who I was going to with and that relaxed me, thinking about the beach.

    "You just have to find a way. You talk about mental strength and the greats, like Rafa, Roger and Novak, they always find a way. I will never be at their level but I'm trying to get closer to them."
