Hello. Day four of the French Open and the world No1, Simona Halep, is finally going to get on court. A combination of the scheduling and the weather has meant that she’s had to wait but the Romanian’s turn has arrived at last. She’s first on Philippe-Chatrier, where she faces the USA’s Alison Riske, and where she was beaten in last year’s final by Jelena Ostapenko. Halep’s still waiting for her first grand slam title, having blown her latest chance when she lost the Australian Open final to Caroline Wozniacki, and will be determined to banish a few demons this morning.
