Romanian Sorana Carstea lost in the Roland Garros quarter finals to Australian Samantha Stosur with 1-6, 3-6, ranked 32 in WTA. Carstea started off in a bad game and lost the game on her service. She was clearly dominated by the Australian player throughout the match.

Nevertheless, Carstea managed her best performance in her career and equals the performance of another Romanian, Ruxandra Dragomir in 1997. The last Romanian to conquer the French Open was Virginia Ruzici in 1978.
