Hsieh looking to continue love affair with Paris

French Open 2017 results

"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 past year she introduced me to her friend", Hsieh said with a smile. "She's an unorthodox player, but uses the best of her ability to her advantage".

Time after time Hsieh spooned clumsily-hit groundstrokes deep into the Philippe Chatrier court, sidespun or sliced, for Konta to swipe her replies wide or long.

"(After the first set) I created opportunities, (but) I didn't do well enough in converting them.

Then a amusing thing happened.

Hsieh was left helpless and, although she got on the board in the fourth game, the first set was over in just 24 minutes. 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.

The momentum remained with Hsieh, who overcame a break on the first point to reel off seven points in succession and take the tie-break 7-2 to level the match.

Trump National Golf Club, Washington D.C.: Virtual tour
The Memorial Tournament (June 1-4): It might be the best non-major, non-playoff, non-Players tournament of the year. There is a protest planned for Sunday at the course , but Daly isn't anxious about that, either.

But now an established top ten player - and with the women's draw in Paris one of the most open in recent years with Serena Williams' absence - hopes were high that Konta would be able to put together a strong run before the season moved to the grass.

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 French Open is one of Hsieh's favorite events.

The 26-year-old is far from unique in finding movement on the surface troublesome, and she arrived in Paris with just three clay wins under her belt this season.

Given the setting, the result was not all that surprising: Konta has now lost all three matches she has played at the French Open in her career.
