French Open day 4: Who's saying what

Who's saying what on the fourth day of the French Open at Roland Garros on Wednesday:

Text size:

"Her game annihilates my strong points."

-- Caroline Garcia after losing in the second round to former runner-up Sofia Kenin

"When it's not full, all the lower seats are empty, even though the upper seats are occupied, then you feel that you're on your own."

-- Garcia on playing on Court Philippe Chatrier where large areas of the VIP areas are often empty during the middle of the day

"I do believe it did happen, unfortunately, and I feel very sorry for him."

-- Garcia reacting to David Goffin's claims that he was spat at by a spectator

"It's confusing in a way of how people behave in a gentleman's sport like tennis."

-- Stefanos Tsitsipas on the Goffin incident

"Really? I was not aware of it. It's good I was not aware of it now that you reminded me."

-- Tsitsipas after beating Daniel Altmaier who knocked Jannik Sinner out of the tournament in the second round in 2023.

"Paula keeps saying all the time, and it annoys me, that she wishes she had my forehand. I tell her I'm sorry, but that's not possible so you have to find ways around it!"

-- Tsitsipas on what he and girlfriend Paula Badosa, who is also into the second round, talk about.

"I was in trouble at points. In the whole match, Jesper and I put on a good show, drop shots, volleys and I think he did it better than me!"

-- Carlos Alcaraz after needing four sets to defeat Dutch qualifier Jesper de Jong, the world number 176.
