Djokovic and Nadal may have been the biggest names in action, but Barbora Krejcikova’s stunning loss was easily the day’s top story.
The No. 2 seed became just the third defending champion to lose in the first round of the French Open, though in her defense, she was coming off a three-month layoff as she recovered from an injured right elbow.
Still, even with that in mind, she would have hoped to advance past the opening round. Krejcikova spoke with reporters about her own expectations before the tournament:
“I don’t really expect much. I don’t think expecting is something good for me. Expecting myself to do well after being injured for a long time, I don’t really think that. But I think that I can be a good opponent. I think I can play well. And even after being injured, I think I had some time to recover and to practice, so I have been preparing for this. So I believe when I start playing matches, I can be really dangerous again and I can do well here as well.”
Instead, it was a jubilant Diane Parry, in front of her native fans, who will be moving on.
“It’s a dream for me. It was always a dream to play on this court, with the French crowd to support me,” she told reporters. “They clearly pushed me to victory today. I’m the happiest person right now.”
It wasn’t the only stunning upset on the women’s side, with No. 5 Anett Kontaveit falling to Ajla Tomljanovic.
