Gael Monfils has lost in the second round of the French Open and left the host country's men on the verge of their worst collective result at Roland Garros.
Richard Gasquet needs a maiden victory over 13-time champion Rafael Nadal or there will be no Frenchmen in the third round of their home Grand Slam for the first time in the Open era. Gasquet has a 0-16 record against Nadal.
The 14th-seeded Monfils lost to Mikael Ymer 6-0, 2-6, 6-4, 6-3. Ymer is the first Swedish man to reach the third round at the French Open since Robin Soderling in 2011.
Rohan Bopanna and Franko Skugor defeated Frances Tiafo and Nicholas Monroe 6-4 7-5 to advance to the pre-quarterfinals.
Women's world number one Ash Barty of Australia retired from her second round match against Poland's Magda Linette at the French Open on Thursday with an injury.
The 2019 champion, who was trailing 6-1 2-2 against Linette, started the second-round match with taping on her left thigh, having said earlier that she suffered a flare-up through her left hip during the weekend.
The 25-year-old's return to Roland Garros ended in disappointment after she opted to not defend her title last year amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Barty had faced problems with her movement on court on Tuesday during the opening round against Bernarda Pera but her physical condition improved against the American after receiving medical attention before the deciding set.
The top-seeded Australian called the trainer on court once again on Thursday after the first set, which she lost in just 27 minutes, hoping to be able to play on after receiving help.
Barty returned to Philippe Chatrier court after the medical timeout and played four more games before deciding she could no longer continue.
