Lesia Tsurenko retired from the match against Iga Swiatek due to dizziness at the 2023 French Open.
Iga Swiatek achieved her objective in another day at Roland Garros. The Polish player started with a strong performance, breaking Lesia Tsurenko's serve three times, although she also got broken once, resulting in a score of 5-1 in the first set.
The Ukrainian player withdrew from the match after experiencing a feeling of dizziness, which prompted a pause in the game. Tsurenko received medical attention when the score was 4-1 in favor of Swiatek, and although she attempted to continue, she still didn't feel well.
After losing another service game, Tsurenko approached the net and made the definitive decision to retire from the tournament in the fourth round. The world No. 1 advanced once again in a short amount of playing time, with only 29 minutes on the court.
In the quarterfinals, there will be a rematch of the 2022 final as Swiatek faces young Coco Gauff, who defeated Anna Karolina Schmiedlova in this round on Court Philippe Chatrier.
