A deluge of upsets swept through the first two rounds of the French Open, and now just three of the top 10 seeds remain in the draw at Roland Garros.

The final day of the second round Thursday featured two more top-10 upsets, as both No. 9 Danielle Collins and No. 8 Karolina Pliskova were ousted from the tournament. Of the top 10, just No. 1 Iga Swiatek, No. 3 Paula Badosa and No. 7 Aryna Sabalenka advanced to the tournament’s third round.

Swiatek and Sabalenka each took care of their second-round opponents with relative ease.

Swiatek beat Alison Riske 6-0, 6-2 for her 30th consecutive match win. She becomes just the fourth player in this century to have won more than 30 matches in a row, joining Venus Williams, Serena Williams and Justine Henin.

She has won 46 out of the last 47 sets that she has played, starting with the Round of 16 at Indian Wells. Since then, she has dropped only one set to Liudmila Samsonova in the Stuttgart Open semifinals.

Sabalenka, meanwhile, defeated Madison Brengle 6-1, 6-3.

Badosa took her match against Kaja Juvan in three sets, riding the ups and downs to a 7-5, 3-6, 6-2 win.

Pliskova was ousted by wildcard Leolia Jeanjean, who hadn’t played in a contested tour-level main draw until this week. It was the first career top-10 win for the French player.

Of the top 10 seeds, No. 10 Garbiñe Muguruza, No. 9 Collins, No. 8 Pliskova, No. 6 Ons Jabeur, No. 5 Anett Kontaveit, No. 4 Maria Sakkari and No. 2 Barbora Krejcikova have all exited the tournament.
