Bianca Andreescu’s journey to Paris lasted only one match, but a long match.

After 3 h 20 min, the Canadian was eliminated in three sets of 7-6 (7/1), 6-7 (2/7) and 7-9 by the Slovenian Tamara Zidansek, 85th in the world.

Parisian clay does not seem to smile on the Ontarian, 6th seed. Absent from the tournament in 2020, Andreescu reached the second round of the tournament in 2019, but had to forfeit due to a shoulder injury.

This time, she entered the tournament just days after withdrawing from the Strasbourg tournament due to abdominal pain.

Polish Iga Swiatek kicked off her title defense at Roland Garros with a victory over Slovenia’s Kaja Juvan (91st) in two sets of 6-0 and 7-5 on her 20th birthday .

Swiatek (no 9) won the first round in just 23 minutes, and she gave up just nine points to her rival.

Things got tough in the second, which lasted an hour. The young Polish girl initially widened the gap 3-1, but Juvan, who had to wait more than half an hour to win her first game and three quarters of an hour to get her first break ball, came back to her height and even had two opportunities to break her rival at 5-5.

Swiatek held on and it was she who ended the game on the next game, on her fourth match point.

I don’t know what to say, Swiatek blurted out after the audience sang “Happy Birthday” after his match was over. I’ve never been in the defending position, even in smaller tournaments, I didn’t know what to expect, she explained. I tried to keep my routine like the rest of the season. “
