Camila Giorgi was spoken to about her choice of dress for the French Open third round but the fashion faux pas didn’t distract the Italian as she marched ahead in Paris.

Giorgi, world No. 30, upset seventh seed Aryna Sabalenka 4-6 6-1 6-0 to progress to the fourth round at Roland Garros for the first time in her career as the carnage continued in the women’s draw.

Giorgi was questioned by the umpire just before her match against Sabalenka began. The official seemed to have an issue with Giorgi’s dress, which had an advertising logo.

“I don’t have any change, this is my only dress. I played with it before,”Giorgi said it.

Jose Morgado a tennis commentator said that the umpire told Giorgi she could wear her outfit, but would talk with the player. “office”It will be discussed after the match.

The problem was reportedly related to the size of the logo for kitchen appliance manufacturer DeLonghi on Giorgi’s chest. The 30-year old posted a photo of her locker room on Instagram before the match, tagging DeLonghi.

Giorgi had worn this same dress before in the tournament, but without DeLonghi logo.

Swiatek, a French Open favorite, won her 31st straight victory to reach the last 16 partly due to a hasty wardrobe change.

Swiatek was the Paris 2020 champion. She dropped serve three more times against her Montenegrin opponent, who was ranked 95th, before winning 6-3 7-5.

Kovinic rallied from 1-4 down in set 2 to lead 5-4. Swiatek stabilized the ship with a hold, break, and then served out for victory.

The 20-year-old Pole admitted that slipping a long-sleeved white shirt over her playing jersey wasn’t just a response to the chilly temperature on Court Philippe Chatrier.

“These are superstitions, so I don’t really believe in that. But I have seen sometimes when people were changing their outfits in between sets and they suddenly came back. I don’t know if that has something to do with the level of the game,”Swiatek.

“I know that in Guadalajara, Aryna (Sabalenka) changed outfits when she was playing against me, and she won the next set. So I didn’t know if the outfit won for Aryna but she was still playing good tennis. Some players are doing that.”

Her winning streak is the best on tour since Serena Williams’s run of 34 successive wins in 2013.

Zheng Qinwen, a teenager from China, will test that stretch on Monday. She is the fourth Chinese player to reach the fourth rounds in Paris.

“I have heard some other players talking about her. I’m sure that she’s in the right place for her to be, because she’s playing really well,”Swiatek.

“Even when she lost some matches, people were saying that she has a talent.”
