Karolina Pliskova plans to pull plug on 2020 after Roland Garros second-round exit.
No. 2-seeded Karolina Pliskova is out of Roland Garros and likely done for the season.
Former French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko tripled Pliskova's winner output sweeping the second-seeded Czech 6-4, 6-2 to roll into the Roland Garros third round for the first time since 2017 when she beat Simona Halep to take the title.
Ostapenko broke one of the tour's premier servers five times in a 69-minute victory.
Pliskova, who suffered a left thigh injury en route to her second straight Rome final last month, struggled in her Roland Garros opening-round win over Egyptian qualifier Mayar Sherif.
Back to her best?

After failing to survived the French Open second round for the seventh time in 10 appearances, Pliskova said she will likely pull the plug on the rest of 2020.
"I'm not thinking about finishing the year," Pliskova said. "I think maybe the year is finished."
It's been a disappointing season for the Czech power player, who also exited the US Open in the second round last month.
Pliskova finished 2019 ranked No. 2, but parted with coaches Conchita Martinez and Rennae Stubbs. Pliskova has been working with Dani Vallverdu, who also coaches Stan Wawrinka, and Olga Savchuk.
"So far I cannot really think about anything what I can do better," Pliskova said. "Of course there is plenty of things which I have to improve, but not thinking about next year at all."
