Through two days at the French Open, American women were undefeated. It was the rare, encouraging storyline for American tennis, but a quick look at the draw suggested that the good feelings were probably going to be short-lived. And it goes without saying that, with Serena Williams’ upset loss on Tuesday, the narrative suffered a fatal blow.
With Day 4 at Roland Garros half-over, we can divide American women into four categories based on their French Open performance.
Fun While It Lasted: No. 57 Vania King, No. 112 Irina Falconi, No. 269 Melanie Oudin.
