Taiwan's Su-Wei Hsieh plays a shot against Britain's Johanna Konta during their first round match of the French Open tennis tournament at the Roland Garros stadium, in Paris, France. "Whether I have lost in the first round or third round or the quarter-finals, I do my best not to judge myself on that aspect".
Given the absence of recent champions Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova, as well as a relatively kind draw in Paris, Konta had been tipped by many as a potential champion at Roland-Garros this year, and was considered part of the "15 players" Simona Halap suggested could win in Paris.
Australian Nick Kyrgios shrugged off injury concerns and kept his emotions in check to outclass Germany's Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-3, 7-6, 6-3 and book his spot in the second round.

A third and fourth break point followed, with the British No. 1 under severe pressure, but she never strayed away from the flat-hitting, positive approach that has seen her enjoy a phenomenal rise to the top-10 and the chance was gone for Hsieh. I think she played very well and consistently well, especially those last two sets.
After losing the first set 6-1, it looked like a formality for the 26-year-old Konta to close out the match.
The 29th seed, whose career has been plagued by injury, confirmed his participation in this year's French Open only last Friday after suffering shoulder and back problems.
"In Taiwan we don't have a professional tennis court so I always travelling to somewhere to practice with my coach and then my friend previous year she introduced me to her friend", Hsieh said with a smile.
After winning the second set, the Taiwanese looked to be the better player of the two, having the momentum, as Konta continued to make mistakes. Svitolina will next face Tsvetana Pironkova after she beat Mona Barthel 6-0 6-4.
The unseeded pro battled to a 1-6 7-6 (2) 6-4 victory in two hours and 18 minutes on the clay court at Roland Garros.
