Tsvetana Pironkova, the highest-ranking Bulgarian tennis player, is facing Sloane Stephens in the third round of Roland Garros on Friday, 17:00 Bulgarian times.

This is the second time in a row for Pironkova, currently 102nd in the WTA ranking, to win two Roland Garros matches in the same tournament. On Wednesday she defeated Johanna Larsson, currently 62nd, in the second round, after securing a victory over Sara Errani (18th as of Friday).
