Wawrinka won the French Open in 2015. In another third-round match, it took 36 points in a marathon third-set tiebreaker for Lorenzo Sonego to finally shake off the 27th-seeded American Taylor Fritz.

Sonego eventually won the tiebreaker in the 1-hour, 18-minute third set and the match 7-6 (5), 6-3, 7-6 (17). He was among five Italian men in the third round at Roland Garros, an Open Era record at a Grand Slam. (AP) .
