In our Daily Dose of Social Media, we take a look back at some of the best moments from Thursday that you might have missed from Roland Garros in a round-up.
Iga Swiatek, Zizou Bergs, Tsitsidosa and Aryna Sabalenka all feature in the latest round-up of social media highlights from another terrific day of action in Paris.

Swiatek left in tears after Osaka win

Iga Swiatek is usually known as a fairly emotionless character on court and is very much all business. She has a steely poise which many don't have where she sticks to the task and is very methodical with her thinking.
But it seemed like her match against Naomi Osaka really took the wind out of her sails as he bottled up emotion and let it out after defeating the former World No.1. She was videoed crying during her warm down.
It seemed to be a mutual feeling with Osaka also crying as per her post match press conference after in her words one of the most fun matches of her career. The Queen of Clay is human after all.

Zizou Bergs brings the party to Roland Garros with spine-tingling reaction

Losing to Rafael Nadal during his comeback run, Zizou Bergs continues to make strides. He wanted to make the top 100 and he has done just that already this week. Defeating Maximilian Marterer in his latest win, the fans in attendance left proceedings with a spine tingling reaction as they took part in a Belgian chant.
Shouting "Where is the party?", the crowd shouted back 'the party is here'. Certainly doesn't get as electric as that. He will hope to get the party going on Friday when he takes on Grigor Dimitrov for a spot in the fourth round. Maybe the party won't stop for the young star.

CanalPlus fulfil the French stereotypes

Whilst French players might be having differing fortunes at the French Open with most falling by the wayside, Canal came up with a hilarious way to fulfil the stereotypes in a realistic video.
Putting bottles of wine and baguettes in the hands of players including Gael Monfils and Richard Gasquet. They even fashioned a table in the latter thanks to the magic of video editing or AI or both with the wine on it. A pretty ingenious way to give all stereotypes a once over at the French Open.

Tsitsidosa steal the show

Paula Badosa and Stefanos Tsitsipas will finally played mixed doubles tomorrow and as the Spaniard went through after defeating Yulia Putintseva, she was all smiles. She will take on best friend Aryna Sabalenka for a spot in the fourth round.
But after reconciling in recent weeks, the duo known as Tsitsidosa were caught on camera by the Roland Garros social media team walking down the stairs hand in hand. Albeit Badosa said she wanted more privacy, they didn't seem to mind with the Spaniard running playfully to try and end the camera shot.

Sabalenka is a vibe post match

As expected Aryna Sabalenka made light work of her second round at the French Open and will now face her best friend for the third time in as many months. It has been a match at each stage between the pair.
From back at Miami where Badosa wasn't on form and Sabalenka was dealing with the passing of her ex-boyfriend to Stuttgart to now when both are at the top of their game again. Hopefully it delivers like Swiatek v Osaka.
But at least what can be expected is Sabalenka's dance moves to always be at the top of their game as she showed post match giving the Roland Garros social team some golden content.

Sinner spotted again watching Kalinskaya

Here is your daily Sinnerskaya gossip. Jannik Sinner was again spotted trying to be covert and failing as his girlfriend Anna Kalinskaya played well into night on Thursday.
With minimal seats on the court in which she was playing against Bianca Andreescu, he was pretty easy to spot. But Kalinskaya will be checking out of the tournament. Andreescu in her best win in a long time ranking wise continued her comeback with another epic win. She will face Kalinskaya nemesis, Jasmine Paolini.
Whilst the Russian will likely next be at Pavel Kotov v Jannik Sinner tomorrow watching from the stands. So no doubt another of these, same time tomorrow.
