The last four of the junior tournament at Roland Garros will bring together four French players. This is unheard of !
Here it is, the French sunshine of this Roland-Garros! After a historically bad fortnight, with no player in the 3rd round in men’s and women’s singles, we are still guaranteed to have a French player on the prize list. It will be among the Juniors, where we find quite simply four French players in the semi-finals!
This Thursday, Sean Cuenin, Luca Van Assche, Arthur Fils and Giovanni Mpetschi Perricard achieved a superb full card, each winning their quarter-final (and all in two sets). History of forming a last square 100% blue white red!
1. For the first time since the start of the Open era, four French players have managed to qualify in the semi-final of the Junior Singles of a Grand Slam tournament. #Roland Garros

Four Frenchmen in the semi-finals of a Grand Slam tournament among the Juniors, it’s simply unheard of, and it gives hope for the years to come, especially a year after the final of the Open from Australia 100% French between Arthur Cazaux and Harold Mayot. There is talent, and having six nuggets on the bridge maximizes the chances of finding “THE” player, the one France is desperately waiting for …
Four in a row! The fourth French junior of the day completes the magic square by winning in turn. Luca Van Assche defeats the Spaniard Daniel Merida Aguilar (7/6, 6/4). The semi-finals of #Roland Garros singles boys will be 100% 🇫🇷. It’s historic! pic.twitter.com/PQH1flsU8x
