    Surprises at French Open 2023

    American third seed Jessica Pegula crashed out of Roland Garros after a crushing 6-1, 6-3 defeat by Belgium’s Elise Mertens. Despite reaching the quarter-finals last year, Pegula was no match for her opponent and became the highest-ranked women’s player to exit this year’s tournament so far.

    Disappointment strikes early on

    Pegula had struggled with food poisoning in preparation for the event, which may have contributed to her earliest exit from Roland Garros yet. Nevertheless, she remains in contention for doubles glory alongside Coco Gauff following their runner-up finish last year.

    Hopefuls making strides

    Meanwhile, Aryna Sabalenka eased through to the fourth round with a comfortable straight-set victory over Kamilla Rakhimova. The Belarusian will face either Sloane Stephens or Yulia Putintseva next as she looks to continue her quest for another Grand Slam title.

    Russian Daria Kasatkina also progressed into the fourth round without dropping a single game against American Peyton Stearns. She now faces Ukrainian Elina Svitolina who came back from behind to beat Anna Blinkova and is enjoying an impressive win streak since winning WTA Strasbourg last week.

    Versatility reigns supreme

    The upsets continued when Swiss sensation Roger Federer announced his withdrawal from French Open due to personal reasons – leaving fans shocked and wondering what could have been if he would have stuck around until later stages of competition. Nonetheless, players like Rafa Nadal are still battling it out on clay courts as they strive towards eventual championship victories!

    “Tennis is all about momentum; sometimes things go your way, sometimes they don’t. It’s a game of ups and downs, but that’s what makes it so exciting.”
