French Open 2012 Results: Varvara Lepchenko Defeated In Fourth Round By Petra Kvitova

Allentown, PA resident Varvara Lepchenko was defeated on Monday at the 2012 French Open in the Fourth Round.

Lepchenko defeated former No. 1 Jelena Jankovic, Ksenia Pervak and 2010 French Open champion Francesca Schiavone during her run to the Fourth Round. In the Fourth Round, Lepchenko fell, 6-2, 6-1, to Petra Kvitova.

Lepchenko said after the match she had "mixed feelings." "I've got real mixed feelings right now. I'm sad but at the same time, I'm excited." She added, "I didn't show anyone any tennis today. I made it like a walk in the park." (via SI.com)

However, Lepchenko's French Open run could land her a spot on the U.S. Olympic team as the fourth-highest ranked U.S. Woman. Lepchenko said about the possibility, "I'm playing in the Olympics and not just for any country, it's the USA. As a kid, you grow up watching the Opening Ceremony and things like that. To be there experiencing that, it's got to be an amazing feeling."
