The match had to be stopped

Ukraine's fourth ranked player Lesia Tsurenko (WTA No. 44) has withdrawn from the French Open tennis tournament. The 34-year-old from Kyiv was unable to continue her first-round match against Donna Vekic (WTA No. 40) from Croatia due to a back injury.

In the first game, our compatriot was leading 5:3, but lost the advantage by failing to realize two set points in the tenth game. Down 5:6 on her serve, Lesia suddenly grabbed her lower back and fell to the court.

After a short medical timeout, Tsurenko decided to end her performance at Roland Garros early. This was the fifth head-to-head match in history for Tsurenko and Vekic. The Ukrainian leads in wins 3:2.
