Hsieh Su-Wei stuns Johanna Konta at French Open

France's Laurent Lokoli returns the ball to Slovakia's Martin Klizan during their tennis match at the Roland Garros 2017 French Open

- The 22-year-old will face either Tunisia's Malek Jaziri or South African Kevin Anderson in the second round.

But Hsieh, who had not previously won a match on clay this season, fought back to stun Konta, who has still not won a match at the French Open. "It was not necessarily easy after I played in Geneva until Saturday to get into gear".

The British contingent will be hoping to make an impact on day three of the French Open at Roland Garros as rising star Johanna Konta and world number one Andy Murray open their campaigns on Court Philippe Chatrier on Tuesday.

Seventh seed Konta dominated the first set but eventually went down 1-6 7-6 (7-2) 6-4 to Taiwanese Hsieh.

"My expectations are never results-orientated".

Health care bill would have a major impact on premiums, CBO finds
Ryan defended his bill Thursday, saying the new analysis shows Republicans can cut premiums below Obamacare's ballooning rates. At the same time, significant divisions have cast the prospect of passing legislation into doubt after weeks of discussion.

"Obviously, I like to be involved in a tournament for as long as possible, and I would have liked to have been involved here longer". Here I played bad, I lost first round.

Konta fired 37 winners but also 38 unforced errors.

Good start at the Roland Garros for Elina Svitolina.

The momentum remained with Hsieh, who overcame a break on the first point to reel off seven points in succession and take the tie-break 7-2 to level the match.

Playing at the clay-court major for the first time since 2012, del Potro won an all-Argentine contest against qualifier Guido Pella 6-2, 6-1, 6-4. Sorana Cirstea beat Peng Shuai and will play against the 21th seeded player Carla Suarez Navarro defeated Maria Sakkari.
