Across the multiple categories, plenty of upsets and sensational performances took place at the Roland Garros in Paris, France. In the next few days, the tournament will see highly competitive fixtures as the Grand Slam reaches its final days. 

Top seed Iga Swiatek made her way into the semi-final in Women’s Singles by beating Jessica Pegula in straight sets. The winner of the 2020 edition of the French Open secured a comfortable 6-3, 6-2 win over the 11th seeded American.
