Ostapenko sends Stosur packing

The 19 year old Latvian player, Jeļena Ostapenko, caused a huge upset when she ousted the 2010 finalist and 23rd seed, Samantha Stosur of Australia, 2-6 6-2 6-4 on Court 2 at the French Open today.

Apart from the 46 winners hit by Ostapenko, there was not much separating the two players, as the experienced Stosur failed to continue her good form, which earned her the Strasbourg title a week ago.

Ostapenko, who has won 7 ITF titles, is yet to clinch her first WTA Singles title, and now finds herself in her first quarter-final of a Grand Slam tournament, having only reached the third round of the Australian Open earlier this year.
