With world No. 1 Carlos Alcaraz in action at the same time on Court Suzanne-Lenglen and another Frenchman, Arthur Fils, playing on Court Simonne-Mathieu, the fans at Roland-Garros were spoilt for choice.
But No.5 seed Garcia said said she was not concerned about how many people stayed to watch the entirety of her match, she was simply happy with the boost they gave her.
“I didn’t count the number of people on the court,” she said. “But I thought that the crowd reacted rather well, I thought. When the moments were important and in some cases, at some moments, when I asked for their support, the support from the crowd, well, that's all I can say, nothing else.

“At the beginning of the tournament, and that's true for all Grand Slams, sometimes the smaller courts, the show courts have more crowd, as they call it, and others don't have tickets and they want to go on Court No.14 and support all of the French.
“Sometimes it's different. Sometimes the crowd is a bit different, but I was really massively supported. I thank them for that.”
