Former top 10 player Lucas Pouille left in floods of tears sealing Roland Garros main draw return after depression and alcoholism battle

Lucas Pouille has already provided one of the best stories of the French Open before play even gets underway in the main draw as he has battled back from seemingly his career being over to qualify for Roland Garros.

Pouille was open earlier this year about his spiral from being a top 10 player to battling with addiction in the form of alcoholism as well as depression. As well as his want to return to the court after some time away.

It was a home hero atmosphere as he booked his spot in Paris beating Jurij Rodionov 1-6, 7-5, 6-0 to reach the main draw and he was left in floods of tears post match as expected.
