What you may have missed between last night and this morning

1. Tennis – Roland-Garros: Simon, night show

It could also have been his last game at Roland-Garros. But a few hours after celebrating Jo-Wilfried Tsonga – who bowed on Tuesday – Gilles eliminated Simon Pablo Carreño Busta (seeded N.16) at Court Simonne-Mathieu. In an electric atmosphere, at 1 am. Simon won in five rounds, in the first round.

Final score: 5-7, 4-6, 6-2, 6-3, 6-2. He will meet Zdenek Kolar in the second round. Gilles Simon takes on Steve Johnson. Another great result from this Tuesday: Hugo Gaston’s qualifying.

2. Basketball – NBA: Dallas Avoids the Sweep

Are you going to take back some Mavs-Warriors? I hope so, because the series hasn’t given its verdict yet. The Mavericks drove Golden State home on the night from Tuesday to Wednesday (French time): 119-109. Luka Doncic was very present, if not very skilled (30 points, 14 rebounds, 9 assists, on 26-10). Stephen Curry and his family keep the margin (3-1) in view of qualifying for the NBA Finals.

Offbeat article of the day

Although broken rackets have become a (bad) habit on the track in recent years, the phenomenon does not amuse everyone. If the ATP and WTA tend to penalize certain excesses financially, brands no longer hesitate to reframe players under contract. At Babolat, linked in particular to Benoît Paire and Fabio Fognini, the line is clear.
