May 27, 2022

Angelique’s winning streak snapped at seven after she lost to Aliaksandra Sasnovich of Belarus 6-4, 7-6(5) in the third round of the French Open Friday.

Sasnovich lost to Angie in three sets last week during the latter’s title-winning run in Strasbourg, but she didn’t need to go the distance to reach the fourth round of a Grand Slam for a second time in her career. Broken to start the match, and twice in the second set, Sasnovich recovered each time.
