French Open Wednesday in PHOTOS: Ons Jabeur’s historic triumph, Kvitova’s loss and more

Wilson Blade 9

Day 4 of Roland Garros 2017 was highlighted by Ons Jabeur‘s upset of Dominika Cibulkova, as the Lotto-clad Tunisian became the first Arab woman to reach the third round of a Grand Slam singles tournament and the first lucky loser to reach the third round of the French Open since 1996. The day was also marked by the defeat of Petra Kvitova, whose comeback can be considered more than successful, nevertheless. All that and much more our photographer Jimmie48 covered in photos, so enjoy!



  1. Thank you for the always impressive pictures you share! Not one photo or comment about Annett Kontaveit. Same happens on the WTA and Roland Garros sites. I wonder if there is a reason behind this…

  2. Thank you for your feedback Marija. I just think Anett played a terrific match against Garbiñe and should have been mentioned more in the various sites. So did Anastasija Sevastova in winning over Eugenie Bouchard today and she’s not mentioned on any of the sites (RG, WTA…). Sometimes I don’t understand that nobody talks about these great players…. maybe they requested less attention from the press?
    Had the privilege to see Anett play in Rome and she was awesome there too 😉

  3. Hated to see Petra defeated, but congrats to Jabeur who played marvelously. She’s got serious skills and I think she’s the dark horse to watch. Good comeback, Petra! Well done, Jabeur! On another note, I love me some Juan Martin Del Poltro! Always the perfect gentleman and sportsman. “Way to go, compassionate, godly and classy guy!”

  4. And yes, outstanding job, Bethanie Mattek-Sands! Petra needs a little more time to get that left hand completely healed and rehabilitated. Thank God, she’s still alive to tell her story and able to continue playing tennis. She’ll be back stronger and better, sooner than later. I was sort of surprised to see my girl Cibulkova get outplayed this time around. It’s so amazing to see Venus Williams still hanging in there. The living legend is playing beautifully!

  5. Caro is playing well now. I hope she finally makes use of this opportunity to win her first slam. Ons Jabeur deserves the historic win. Hoping that we will see more of her in the tour after this fortnight.

  6. Michaela, no way they requested less attention from the press, it’s just that the media choose to write about more sensational stories and more famous players.
