Roland Garros ’23 – Day 3 women’s qualifying final results

PARIS – The third day in Paris is the second round of qualifying.

And with Katherine Sebov being eliminated Tuesday by Petra Marcinko, only Carol Zhao was left to carry the flag on the women’s side. She played a tough 17-year-old lefty named Sarah Bejlek who was pretty impressive.

Other matches to watch: Polona Hercog, back after a full year away, plays Mirjam Bjorklund (also known as Denis Shapovalov’s better half). But her marathon first-round win proved too much to recover from, after that long absence.

And No. 1 seed Camila Osorio played an opponent who hasn’t been seen at the Grand Slam level in forever, but who pulled out her first-round match: Sesil Karatantcheva. It wasn’t pretty, but Karatantcheva was happy to be back, after nearly five years away.
