PARIS (AP) — The Latest on the French Open (all times local):
Venus Williams appears to have accidentally announced her pregnant sister Serena is expecting a girl.
After her second-round win at the French Open, Venus was asked what she wanted the baby to call her.
She said: “She’s going to call me ‘favorite aunt’.”
Serena, who is about six months pregnant, was at Roland Garros on Wednesday, watching her older sister beat Kurumi Nara of Japan in straight sets.
Ons Jabeur’s dream debut at the French Open continued as the 22-year-old Tunisian beat sixth-seeded Dominika Cibulkova in straight sets to reach the third round of a Grand Slam for the first time in her career.
Jabeur, who is ranked 114th, won 6-4, 6-3, sealing the victory on her third match point when Cibulkova double-faulted.
She struggled to hold back the tears and ran over to her team to grab a Tunisian flag which she held over her head.
“I am very, very happy,” Jabeur said. “I won the Roland Garros juniors here, I have good memories and I hope to create more.”
Jabeur, a lucky loser from the qualifying tournament, next faces Timea Bacsinszky.
Robin Haase lost the match, but not his sense of humor in a second-round defeat to Rafael Nadal at the French Open.
Haase was beaten 6-1, 6-4, 6-3 by Nadal, who is bidding for an unprecedented 10th title at Roland Garros.
“At the beginning I was way better,” Haase said. “Then the warm-up ended.”
A stray shot from Haase rebounded off the umpire’s chair during the third set. The Dutch player pointed his tennis racket at the umpire and mimicked using a bow and arrow as Arnaud Gabas smiled and places his hands together.
Gabas was the umpire injured earlier this year…
