Laura takes a turnaround after the rain and drops into the top 20 in her Roland Garros debut

When the third set began, the moment belonged entirely to the Brazilian. Laura seemed very energetic and full of motivation, while Kostyuk looked frustrated and physically unwell. Pigosi took advantage of the opportunity and started another set by breaking his serve, and this time he increased his advantage and opened the match 4/0.

Kostyuk repeated one of the breaks, and when the score showed 4/2, it started to rain and the match was stopped. When the restart began, Laura had two game points to take a 5/2 lead, but saw Kostyuk hit back-to-back winners and manage to claw back another break. Shortly after, the match was tied with a score of 4/4. The moment changed, the Ukrainian won a serve game from the Brazilian again and opened 5/4.

The match was stopped again, with Pigosi seeking medical attention, but Kostyuk did not waste a serve to close out the match.
