After his five-set victory over Benoit Paire, Norrie had a much more comfortable time in a 6-1 6-3 6-3 win over Pouille to set up a clash with young Italian Lorenzo Musetti.
Novak Djokovic and Carlos Alcaraz both made it through to the last 32 of the French Open without any real alarms but Caroline Garcia, the biggest home hope, is out.

Upset of the day
Barbora Krejcikova and Katerina Siniakova have dominated women’s doubles recently and were looking to win a fifth straight grand slam title. So a first-round loss to Ulrikke Eikeri of Norway and Japan’s Eri Hozumi was a shock and a half.
Men: Roberto Bautista Agut (19), Sebastian Korda (24)
Women: Caroline Garcia (5), Liudmila Samsonova (15), Jelena Ostapenko (17), Zheng Qinwen (19)
Who’s up next?
Defending women’s champion Iga Swiatek continues her campaign for a third title in Paris against American Claire Liu.
Wimbledon champion Elena Rybakina meets teenage Czech Linda Noskova while Coco Gauff takes on Austria’s Julia Grabher.
In the men’s draw, the withdrawal of Gael Monfils means Alexander Zverev plays in the night session against Alex Molcan, with fourth seed Casper Ruud opening proceedings against Giulio Zeppieri.
