1 - Naomi Osaka, who continues her quest for a third successive Grand Slam title against Czech Katerina Siniakova on Court Suzanne-Lenglen, is looking to reach the fourth round at Roland-Garros for the first time.

2 - The average number of cups of coffee drunk daily by Belgrade cafe owner Dusan Lajovic, Alexander Zverev’s Serbian opponent on Court Simonne-Mathieu, who has enjoyed a breakthrough year.

3 - The number of underarm serves Dominic Thiem received from the maverick Alexander Bublik in a hugely entertaining second-round clash. The Austrian lost two of those points and won one but won’t be expecting any similar tales of the unexpected against Uruguay’s Pablo Cuevas on Court Suzanne-Lenglen. 

5 - The 31-year-old Andrea Petkovic, who takes on Australia’s No.8 seed Ashleigh Barty, is one of five women over the age of 30 who battled their way into the third round of the women’s main draw.   

16 - The number of games the mightily impressive Novak Djokovic has dropped so far in his two matches. For the full statistical breakdown of his matches and everyone that has been played at Roland-Garros this year, you can go to the Infosys Match Centre.

17 - Amanda Anisimova, who faces Romania’s Irina-Camelia Begu, is the youngest competitor left in the singles competitions at Roland-Garros. At 17 years 282 days, she is also the youngest American since a 16-year-old Serena Williams to reach the third round here.

36 - The number of winners that Serena Williams, who faces young US player Sofia Kenin in the third round on Court Philippe-Chatrier, blasted past Kurumi Nara in her previous contest. You can check out the details of how she executed these winners here on InfoSys Court Vision.

137 - The total points score of talented 18-year-old Pole Iga Swiatek, who was the highest-rated woman player on the InfoSys Slam Leaderboard after two rounds. She meets Olympic champion Monica Puig, who’s ranked number four on the leaderboard. For further details, check in here.
147 - Italian Salvatore Caruso is the lowest-ranked player left in the men’s draw, 146 places below the highest-ranked, the world No.1 Djokovic, who just happens to be his third-round opponent on Court Philippe-Chatrier.
