French Open: Pier­reHugues Her­bert beat for­mer cham­pion To­mas Berdych 6-2, 7-5 to set up an all-French fi­nal against Jo-Wil­fried Tsonga in Mont­pel­lier.

France and Be­larus were in com­mand of their Fed Cup first-round ties while 2018 fi­nal­ists the Czech Re­pub­lic and the United States were level in their ties. Ash­leigh Barty gave Aus­tralia a good start in its bid to end a 35-year los­ing drought to the U.S. by hit­ting 10 aces past Sofia Kenin in win­ning 6-1, 7- 6 (2). But Madi­son Keys then took only an hour to de­feat Kim­berly Bir­rell, play­ing her first tie in three years, 6-2, 6-2.
