American Taylor Townsend Out of 2014 French Open in Round 3.
American Taylor Townsend's valiant effort to gain as much depth as possible into the 2014 French Open has come to an end. Spain's Carla Suarez Navarro, the women's 14th seed, proved to be more competition on clay than Townsend could handle.
After the brief twenty-four minute first set, Townsend appeared to gather herself and put forth greater offense than she had in the first set, but even with her adjustments, Townsend was still no match for Navarro who began to steamroll the talented teen into a 6-2, 6-2 defeat.
Townsend used her brief run to bring a great deal of excitement to this year's French Open, especially in light of the Williams sisters being eliminated so early. She can certainly return home knowing that she put her best foot forward and that all of her hard work has been worth the effort.
Great Job Taylor!!
