Emma Raducano (WTA 12) has already won the Grand Slam title, but she made her Roland Garros debut. Last year, she won dramatically at the US Open. She then ranked 150th in the standings and won 10 matches in New York (three in the playoffs). The current season is a series of disappointments for her. She was eliminated from the Australian Open in the second round. At the same stage she finished her performance in Paris. The British lost 6:3, 1:6, 1:6 with Alaksandra Sasnowicz (WTA 47).
In the match that lasted two hours and four minutes, Sasnowiec defended five of the seven break points and used five of the 13 break points. You sent 45 final hits with only 24 non-forced errors. Radokan counted 17 direct wins and 33 fouls. This was the second meeting of these tennis players. In 2021, a tennis player from Minsk also enjoyed winning in Indian Wells. Sasnowicz can now boast a third round achievement in each of his four Grand Slam events. Her best result was the 1/8 final at Wimbledon 2018.
The other challenger for the Sosnowiecs is Andżelika Kerber (WTA 17), who won 6:1, 7:6 (2) Elsa Jacquemot (WTA 215) after two hours and four minutes. The match was a great fight, which is also the first set, the result of which does not reflect the course of the match. Both tennis players had 11 break points. The German defended 10 times and scored four breaks. The former rating leader had 36 final hits with 25 non-forced fouls. The 19-year-old Frenchman had 44 direct wins and 40 fouls.

Kerber has lost eight times in Paris in the first round, including the previous three seasons. Also this year, she could withdraw after the first match, but she defended two identical balls and eliminated Magdalena Fręch. Roland Garros is the only Grand Slam tournament in which the German has not played in the semi-finals. The former leader triumphed in the standings at the 2016 Australian Open and US Open and at Wimbledon 2018.
Victoria Azarenka (WTA 15) beat Andrea Petkovic (WTA 65) 6-1, 7:6 (3). In the second set, the previous standings leader returned from 2:4 and defended the set ball in the 10th inning. Within an hour and 48 minutes, the two-time Australian Open champion attempted a 23-hit finish with 13 non-forced errors. The Germans counted 30 balls and won with 42 fouls. Both tennis players reached one semi-final in Paris. Azarenka came to him in 2013, and Petkovic did it a year later.
In the third round, Azarenka will face Gil Tikhman (WTA 24), who won 6:4, 6:1 with Olga Danilovich (WTA 172). The Swiss cut six breaks in 78 minutes. Marie Bozkova (WTA 69) withdrew because she tested positive for COVID-19. Thus, Elise Mertens (WTA 32) is further upgraded without playing.
