The world No. 4, the Belarusian Aryna Sabalenka, was eliminated this Friday in the 3rd round of Roland Garros by the 32nd in the world, the Russian Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, 6-4, 2-6, 6-0.
After the losses or abandonments of the top three women’s rackets in the world (Ashleigh Barty, Simona Halep, Naomi Osaka), Kenin is the only member of the Top-5 still with options in the women’s draw. With only four Top-10 players still in competition, the way seems to be paving for reigning champion Iga Swiatek (9th). (GG) (AFP)
