Radwanska Eliminated Leaving No Top 3 Women’s Seeds In A Slam 4th RD For First Time In Open Era
No. 3 seed Agnieszka Radwanska became the latest top player to fall at the French Open losing today in the third round to Croatian 21-year-old Ajla Tomljanovic 64, 64.
The loss is significant because following the upsets of Serena Williams and Li Na, it means no Top 3 seeds will have advanced to the fourth round at a Grand Slam women’s event for the first time in the Open Era.
“After seeing, you know, the two first seeds go out, you kind of feel like I can do this, too,” said Tomljanovic who is playing in her first French Open. “I grew up with these girls that are beating them. I went out there and I really thought I could win. I think that showed and it is why I got over the line.”
