109 stunned Britain’s Johanna Konta in the first round of the French Open.

Doubles specialist Hsieh, 31, recovered from a dreadful start to knock off seventh seed Konta 1-6, 7-6 (7/2), 6-4 on Court Philippe Chatrier.

“I tried very hard and gave myself a big chance. Every time I tried to run as fast as I can and get the ball back,” said Hsieh, who won for the just the second time in seven trips to Roland Garros. “I like to do some different stuff. I think it’s quite fun to play the match like that, I don’t know if that’s really nice or but I like to go out on court and enjoy the match.”

Hsieh had won just twice at tour level this year and appeared to be heading for a swift exit as Konta raced through the opening set.    [FULL  STORY]
