Jelena Ostapenko came into Roland Garros with some confidence, and that is showing plainly after her 6-4, 6-2 upset of No. 2 seed Karolina Pliskova on Thursday. The 2017 Paris champion is looking more like her old self than in the past two years, when she lost in the first rounds.
"I think now I'm in a good form, and obviously these two matches I played really well," she told press. "Also couple of matches in Strasbourg I played well. Slowly getting back in this form and playing some matches in this rhythm again."
She skipped the New York swing and dropped her opener in Rome but in Strasbourg she picked up wins over Lauren Davis and Kiki Bertens.
