The wait for a first Roland Garros win continues for Daniil Medvedev as he again fell at the first hurdle at the French Open, this time going down to Marton Fucsovics.

The fourth seed started his fourth main-draw match in Paris with a 0-3 record, but that ticked over to 0-4 as he produced an erratic display as Fucsovics claimed his first win over a top 10 player with a 6-4, 7-6 (7-3), 2-6, 6-1 scoreline.

Fucsovics broke in game nine of the opener to take the first set, but both players struggled to hold serve in the second set as each broke three times.

The Russian threw in an underarm serve at one point.

The volatile Medvedev lost his cool during the tie-breaker and was given a penalty for racket abuse, resulting in the Hungarian going two sets up.

But the 2019 US Open runner-up looked like he finally managed to turn things around as he dominated the third set, breaking in the first game and the fifth game to take the set.

However, that was as good as it got for him as the roles were reversed in the fourth set as Fucsovics claimed to breaks to ease home to set up a clash against Albert Ramos-Vinolas, who beat Frenchman Adrian Mannarino 6-4, 6-3, 6-0.
