May 31 (Reuters) - Here is a round-up of day four at the French Open on Wednesday:

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "Last week I won my first-ever clay tournament. And today I lost at the French Open. It's the paradox of tennis." - Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, who won the ATP event in Lyon last week, said after his opening-round loss to Argentine Renzo Olivo.

FACT OF THE DAY: American Chris Evert holds the women's record for most French Open wins with seven titles. Spaniard Rafael Nadal holds the men's record with nine victories.

STAT OF THE DAY: Venus Williams (36 years, 348 days) became the oldest woman to reach the third round at Roland Garros since her American compatriot Billie Jean King (38) in 1982.

PERFORMANCE OF THE DAY: Defending champion Garbine Muguruza stole the show on Wednesday after clawing her way back from a set down to claim a 6-7 6-4 6-2 win over Anett Kontaveit of Estonia. (Compiled by Hardik Vyas in Bengaluru, editing by Ed Osmond)
