Taiwan’s Hsieh Su-wei’s surprise French Open run ended in the third round
yesterday after a dramatic 6-4, 4-6, 9-7 defeat to French 28th seed Caroline Garcia.
Hsieh, looking to reach the last-16 of a Grand Slam for just the second time, led 3-1 in the final set before Garcia reeled off four games on the trot.
The Frenchwoman failed to close it out initially, with Hsieh serving for the match at 6-5.
The world No. 109 faltered as well though, allowing Garcia to eventually prevail after 2 hours, 39 minutes. [FULL STORY]
