Playing in her first event since the 2019 US Open, Daria Gavrilova ousted No. 24-seeded Dayana Yastremska in the first round of Roland Garros on Sunday night.
After dealing with foot, Achilles tendon and toe injury setbacks, the 26-year-old Aussie is making her comeback thanks to a protected ranking. Technically it's the world No. 788's second tournament having played a W50 ITF in France leading up to Roland Garros.
"I played in Cagnes-sur-Mer, played qualies there, then made quarters," she told press. "Then I felt like, OK, I've had enough matches. I felt, yeah, pretty good. I feel pretty fit."
