Highlights of French Open third day

Elina Svitolina Carla Suarez French Open Maria Sakkari

British number one Johanna Konta suffered a shock defeat against world number 109 Hsieh Su-wei in the first round of the French Open, while Nick Kyrgios shrugged off injury concerns to outclass Germanys Philipp Kohlschreiber on Tuesday.

Hsieh won the 2014 French Open doubles title with China's Peng Shuai, as well Wimbledon in 2013, but it was the first time she had played on the main Roland Garros show court in singles.

The 31-year-old entered the match with a 2-5 record on the season and was dominated in the first set but she quickly gathered herself to push Konta in the middle set. In the third set Su-Wei Hsieh broke Konta and then on 5-4 she saved four break points to advance into the second round where she will face Taylor Townsend, who beat the Japanese Miyo Kato 6/4 6/0.

"There were some points there where I didn't do much wrong, and she surprised me with how well she moved on the clay and how solid she was".

In Trump's private moments, it's small talk and compliments
Trump swallowed whole the Saudi (and Israeli) view that Iran is a major menace to the region and it must be fought relentlessly. On Tuesday morning, Trump met with Abbas in Bethlehem, traveling across the barrier surrounding much of the biblical city.

It was made more surprising by the fact the seventh-seeded Konta started so positively, overpowering Hsieh in the early stages and losing only 10 points on her way to winning the first set. "She's an unorthodox player, but uses the best of her ability to her advantage".

Hsieh has a second-round clash to look forward to, and could barely contain her delight.

She is scheduled to compete there again this year, as well as at Nottingham, while she will be aiming to improve on her career-best second round appearance at SW19.

"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".

Madison Keys won her first clay court match of 2017 with a comprehensive 6-3 6-2 victory over Australia's Ashleigh Barty.
