Elina Svitolina, 26, advanced to the third round of the French Open.

But there the journey in Paris would stop.

She faced Barbora Krejcikova, 25, and lost 6-3, 6-2.

The 25-year-old opponent started strong and convinced.

Most top-seeded out there

First, world setter Ashleigh Barty was forced to leave the tournament in the second round due to injury.

Then Naomi Osaka, another top-seeded player, withdrew.

In addition, world number three Sofia Halep also resigned before the tournament, as she had problems with a bet.

And yesterday, third-seeded Aryna Sabalenka was also knocked out in the third round.

One of the favorites to win the grand slam tournament is now Serena Williams.
