Iga Świątek out of French Open
Iga Świątek, the reigning French Open champion, is out of this year’s tournament after losing her quarterfinal to Greece's Maria Sakkari.
Eighth-seed Świątek, who became the first Pole to win a Grand Slam singles title with her 2020 victory, lost 6-4, 6-4 on Wednesday.
The defeat ended Świątek's 11-match run of French Open wins, during which she did not even lose a set.
It was the first time Świątek and Sakkari, frequent training partners in the past, had played each other in a competitive game.
