More surprises at Roland Garros as No. 4 seed Sakkari out early
Fourth-seeded Maria Sakkari has lost in the second round of the French Open a year after reaching the semifinals.
Sakkari was defeated by Czech player Karolina Muchova 7-6 (5), 7-6 (4) at Roland Garros, meaning two of the top four women’s seeds already have been eliminated.
Second-seeded Barbora Krejcikova, the defending champion, lost on Monday.
The 81st-ranked Muchova beat then-No. 1 Ash Barty at the 2021 Australian Open and is now 4-2 against players ranked in the top 5.
