Tsvetana Pironkova (#102) of Bulgaria gets to the third round of the French Open for the second consecutive year. To do that, she had to beat two very good clay court players.
The first one she upset was 2012 French Open finalist Sara Errani (#18) of Italy 63 62. She then proceeded to upset Johanna Larsson (#62) of Sweden 75 76(6) in the second round.
She will meet Sloane Stephens (#22) of the US today.
Tsvetana has reached the second round of the Australian Open eight times, the quarterfinals of Wimbledon in 2011 and the fourth round of the US Open in 2012.
