Steve Darcis of Belgium (#161) gets to the 2nd round of the French Open for the third time. He was able to do it in 2010 and 2011, where he reached the 3rd round, for the only time in his career. This is his 7th French Open appearance in the main draw.
Because of his current ranking, Steve had to qualify for the main draw, which put him in good stead, because he defeated his first round Turkish opponent, Marsel Ilhan, rather easily, 63 64 60.
Steve has reached a career-high ranking of #44.
His second round opponent though is world #1 Novak Djokovic, so it's going to be a tough ask for him.
