Paris: On the day Varvara Lepchenko became the last American singles player to exit the French Open, she also learned she's in line to become one of the few Americans to wear the red, white and blue at the Olympics.
A bittersweet close to an overall successful stay at Roland Garros, which included victories over 2010 French Open champion Francesca Schiavone and former No. 1 Jelena Jankovic but ended with a thud Monday, in a 6-2, 6-1 loss to Petra Kvitova in the fourth round.
"I've got real mixed feelings right now," Lepchenko said. "I'm sad but at the same time, I'm excited."
