PARIS — A hard-to-predict French Open women’s singles tournament was thrown open even wider on Friday when second-seeded Karolina Pliskova was ousted before the event concluded its first week.
Petra Martic, the No. 31 seed, dispatched Pliskova, 6-3, 6-3, in their third-round match on Philippe Chatrier Court, leaving the bottom half of the women’s draw with no seed higher than Sloane Stephens at No. 7.
Only two players remaining on that side of the draw have won a Grand Slam tournament: Stephens and Garbiñe Muguruza, and they play each other in the next round. (Stephens won the 2017 United States Open, and Muguruza won the French in 2016 and Wimbledon in 2017.)
“Draws are meant to fall apart,” Stephens said.
While men’s tennis is top-heavy, with Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal or Roger Federer having won the last nine Grand Slam titles, the women’s game has far more variety. Eight women have won the last nine majors, and of the 12 premier tour events in 2019, there have been nine different winners.
The top half of the draw, which plays its third-round matches on Saturday, still features such high-wattage luminaries as Naomi Osaka, winner of the last two Grand Slams; Serena Williams, winner of 23 majors; and Simona Halep, the defending French Open champion. Five of the top 10 seeds are still alive, but four of them are in the top half of the draw: No. 1 Osaka, No. 3 Halep, No. 8 Ashleigh Barty and No. 10 Williams.
But with Pliskova’s loss on Friday and No. 4 Kiki Bertens’s withdrawal because of illness, the bottom half of the draw gained more uncertainty. There will be even more after either No. 7 Stephens or No. 19 Muguruza knocks the other one out on Sunday.
Stephens, a finalist last year, beat Polona Hercog of Slovenia, 6-3, 5-7, 6-4, on Friday after failing to close out the match when serving for it in the second set. Muguruza is starting to flash the kind of elevated form that has led her to success at some major tournaments. Her winning percentage in tour events is .652, but in the majors, it is .741; at Roland Garros, she is 27-5.
“I don’t know what is about French Open that gives me always a nice mood, and my tennis develops much better,” said Muguruza, who reached the semifinals in Paris last year.
The results leave players like No. 12 Anastasija Sevastova of Latvia with a decent path to the semifinal. She saved five match points to defeat No. 20 Elise Mertens of Belgium, 6-7 (3), 6-4, 11-9, in 3 hours 18 minutes. Sevastova served well and played aggressively even on the match points, three of which she nailed with daring winners.
In the fourth round Sevastova plays the unseeded Marketa Vondrousova, a 19-year-old from the Czech Republic, who beat No. 28 Carla Suárez Navarro, 6-4, 6-4.
Sevastova, who lost to Williams in a U.S. Open semifinal last year, would not have to face a player ranked better than No. 31 until the semifinals, but she insisted that the draw was still difficult.
“Everybody can play tennis here,” she said, “and there are so many young girls up and coming. Maybe they’re not seeded, but they play great on clay, like Martic.”
Martic, a 28-year-old from Croatia, has 14 wins on clay this season, the most on the WTA tour. Pliskova, just two weeks ago, had won the Italian Open, the biggest clay-court title of her career. That victory vaulted her over Halep for the No. 2 spot in the rankings and at the French Open.
Sevastova and Mertens captivated the crowd in the Suzanne Lenglen Court, many of whom were enjoying the match as an extended warm-up to Federer’s meeting with Casper Ruud, scheduled afterward on the same court. The earlier match was better, with Sevastova and Mertens pushing each other until Mertens finally cracked, allowing Sevastova to break her serve at 9-9 in the third.
“At the end, you think, was she a worse player?” Sevastova said. “No. It is just a millimeter. It doesn’t make you a better or worse player. In the end, it’s a bit of luck.”
Two matches from the top half of the draw needed to be concluded after they had been suspended on Thursday. No. 14 Madison Keys defeated Priscilla Hon, 7-5, 5-7, 6-3, and 27th-seeded Lesia Tsurenko, who turned 30 on Thursday, beat Aleksandra Krunic, 5-7, 7-5, 11-9.
Tsurenko then revealed that she had been miserable the last few days, contemplating her tennis mortality.
“I think the main mental problem yesterday was that I had a birthday, and I’m now 30,” she said. “I had so many things in my head that I would say it was one of the worst days of my life. I thought I will feel good, but actually I was not feeling well since the two days ago. I start to think about that I’m 30, and I don’t have much time left to play on tour and all this bad things.”
Tsurenko is still alive in the draw, and even though her next opponent is Halep, there is still room for new winners in 2019.
