Follow live updates from the French Open as the third round gets underway on another packed day at Roland Garros. Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic will look to take a step closer to a quarter-final meeting as they return to action on day six. Nadal and Djokovic, who have combined to win the last six French Open titles, remain on a collision course and have yet to drop a set in their opening two matches.

Nadal will find himself on Court Suzanne-Lenglen today as he faces the Dutchman Botic van de Zandschulp, while Djokovic returns to Philippe Chatrier and will play Aljaz Bedene in the second match of the day. Later on, Britain’s last remaining hope Cameron Norrie will look to reach new ground as the men’s No. 1 attempts to advance to the second week of a grand slam for the first time against Karen Khachanov.

Elsewhere, Coco Gauff looks to be finding form and can take advantage of an open bottom half of the bracket as the American faces Kaia Kanepi. Former world No. 1 Angelique Kerber will also hope to continue her bid for a career grand slam as she takes on Aliaksandra Sasnovich, who defeated Emma Raducanu on Wednesday, while the battle between Olympic gold medalist Belinda Bencic and US Open finalist Leylah Fernandez opens play on Philippe Chatrier.

*Gauff 6-3, 3-3 Kanepi

Fine work from Gauff who weathers a bit of a storm from Kanepi to take the sixth game and keep the second set level. Tidy stuff from the teenager.

Gauff 6-3, 2-3 Kanepi*

Three games on the bounce for Kanepi now and there’s a bit of pressure starting to land on Coco Gauff. She’ll need to hold serve here to halt the Estonian’s momentum.

*Gauff 6-3, 2-2 Kanepi

Break! Kaia Kanepi is not going away. She fights up to deuce on Gauff’s serve then wins the next point to move to advantage. An overhead smash down the middle gives her the game and the second set is all square.

*Gauff 6-3, 2-1 Kanepi

Incredible defence from Gauff. Kanepi will be asking herself what more she can do after pegging the American properly behind the baseline with some lusty blows. Gauff even manages to loop a body shot over the net and Kanepi’s attempted smash goes long!

30-30 now in the fourth game of the second set.

Gauff 6-3, 2-1 Kanepi*

Solid response from Kanepi who quickly rattles through her next service game to stop Gauff from running away with the set and the match.

The Estonian still needs a break of serve though.

*Gauff 6-3, 2-0 Kanepi

Gauff rolls her wrists to work a forehand cross to the back corner and leave Kanepi with a difficult return shot. The Estoian gets the ball back but Gauff passes her with a backhand winner.

That sets up the game for the 18-year-old who holds serve and moves into a 2-0 lead of the second set.

Gauff 6-3, 1-0 Kanepi*

Kaia Kanepi kicks off the second set but comes up against a Gauff who is firing on all cylinders now. She sets up a break point and takes it at the first time of asking.

The American is nicely into her work now.

*Gauff 6-3 Kanepi

Gauff looks in charge of her service game but taking a 30-0 lead but a second serve to Kanepi’s forehand is drilled back at the American who can only watch it sail by.

She holds her nerve though, takes the next two points and wins the first set.

Gauff 5-3 Kanepi*

Kanepi works Gauff over to the left side of the court and receives a beautifully weighted return allowing her to open up the opposite side of the court and take the point.

She collects the next two and Gauff spoons one out of play to give the Estonian the game.

*Gauff 5-2 Kanepi

Nervous times for Coco Gauff as Kaia Kanepi digs in to claim the game on her second attempt at break point! The set isn’t done with just yet.
