Tuesday at Roland Garros was marked by a premature exit of seventh seed Johanna Konta, who dominated the first set but eventually fell to Taiwanese world No.109 Hsieh Su-wei, and straight-set wins of fifth seed Elina Svitolina and third seed Simona Halep. Despite impressive career justified by her No.8 ranking, Great Britain’s Konta has never won a main-draw match at the French Open, having suffered three successive first-round losses. Our photographer Jimmie48 covered all that and much more in photos. Enjoy!
