Tennis: Aryna Sabalenka Out Of French Open

Hard fighting third seed Aryna Sabalenka was dumped out of the French Open in the third round on Friday by Russia’s Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, leaving Serena Williams as the highest-ranked player left in her half of the draw. This is according to reports by the AFP.

Russian 31st seed Pavlyuchenkova won 6-4, 2-6, 6-0 and will meet either Victoria Azarenka or Madison Keys for a place in the quarterfinals. Sabalenka joins top seed Ashleigh Barty and second-seeded Naomi Osaka in exiting the tournament in the first week. Williams, who is chasing a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title, will tackle Danielle Collins later Friday in her third-round tie.
