Karolina Pliskova at the french open 2017
Second-seeded Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic reached her first French Open quarterfinal by coming back to edge 97th-ranked Veronica Cepede Royg of Paraguay 2-6, 6-3, 6-4.
Pliskova was the runner-up at last year’s U.S. Open. But she had never been past the second round in five previous appearances at Roland Garros.
Cepede Royg had a chance to pull off the upset, holding a break point while ahead 4-3 in the third set. If she had won that point, she would have served for the victory. But she missed a backhand, then put her hands on her hips and rolled her eyes.
