Steve Johnson' s run ends on sentimental stage

USA's Steve Johnson returns the ball to Japan's Yuichi Sugita during their first round match of the French Open tennis tournament at the Roland Garros stadium Monday

Seeded winners in the men's second round: No. 2 Novak Djokovic, No. 4 Rafael Nadal, No. 5 Milos Raonic, No. 6 Dominic Thiem, No. 10 David Goffin, No. 11 Grigor Dimitrov, No. 16 Lucas Pouille, No. 17 Roberto Bautista Agut, No. 19 Albert Ramos-Vinolas, No. 20 Pablo Carreno Busta, No. 25 Steve Johnson. Just to get through it was something that I know I'll be very proud of.

The elder Johnson had planned to travel with the family to see Steve play in Wimbledon in a few weeks.

In a match that saw tempers fray at both ends, Croatia's Coric repeatedly smashed his racquet into the court after losing the fourth set, having held set points.

Perhaps drained by the emotion of Wednesday, Johnson started slowly and was broken at the first time of asking courtesy of a pair of unforced errors.

"I know it's going to be emotional for quite some time".

Right from the time he was introduced in the 18th over, Rashid cast a spell on the Aussie batting and bowled 28 dot balls as well. Put into bat by Morgan, the Australians showed lot of intent with openers Warner, Finch and Smith scoring as a good rate.

A marvellous forehand return from Johnson immediately brought things back on serve, but Thiem found another gear to restore his break, holding to love before seeing out victory and setting up a clash with Zeballos, for which he will be favourite.

"Just a lot of the emotions". The American player is still grieving over the sudden death of his father, so get to know all about him as he advances in the tournament. "I just knew he was looking down on me on that last point and gave me the strength to finish it off". "The other days, I was able to kind of get to the locker room and kind of compose myself a little bit". I just tried to stay as calm as possible and I was happy to win the last point. "It's just so emotional, it's hard to describe".

The American won his first-round match at Roland-Garros and then made it two in a row Wednesday with a dramatic win over Borna Coric.
