Pivovarova upsets Zheng at French Open

Russian qualifier Anastasia Pivovarova has advanced for the first time to the third round of a Grand Slam tournament by defeating the 25th-seeded Zheng Jie of China 6-4, 6-3 at the French Open.
Pivovarova broke Zheng in the final game of the first set Friday and sealed the win when Zheng hit a backhand long. Zheng, an Australian Open semifinalist this year, failed to convert nine break points in the first set.
Pivovarova, ranked 187th, had never won a first-round match in a major event coming into the tournament.
