The second grand slam of the season is warming up, as the third day of the French Open witnessed some exciting tennis. The clash between Gael Monfils and Dustin Brown, for one, saw some exquisite shot making, including two phenomenal shots in one rally. Here are the day's top three shots:

Tsonga sets up a stunning point against Olivo

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga’s first round match was suspended because of fading light even as he was trailing 5-7, 4-6, 7-6 (6), 4-5 to Roland Garros debutant Renzo Olivo. On a day when not much went right for Tsonga, the 12th-seeded Frenchman tested Olivo’s technique by hitting a sizzling crosscourt smash followed by a sensational drop that Olivo could only play into the net.

Brown, Monfils pull off two sensational shots in a single rally 

Brown and Monfils pulled off two astonishing shots on the same point in an epic rally. In a tense second set battle, Brown attempted to beat Monfils with a drop shot but Frenchman Monfils was up to the challenge and his return forced Brown to rush to the baseline from where he pulled off a cross-court flick that put Monfils on the defensive. Monfils sealed the point with a stunning tweener. Watch here:

Murray shows his class to Kuznetsov

Andy Murray's first year as world No 1 has not got off the way the Briton would have ideally liked it to after dethroning Novak Djokovic at the top of the rankings at the end of 2016.  Murray appeared scratchy in the first round that saw world No 73 Kuznetsov break him four times - twice while taking the second set. However, in the third set, the Briton showed who the boss was as he carved a stunning return from a difficult position when Kuznetsov thought the point was done and dusted.  Watch here:
