Kohlschreiber won 6-3, 7-6 (4), 4-6, 6-1 over Aslan Karatsev
in the second round of the French Open on Thursday.
Kohlschreiber, who didn't have a tour-level win in 2021 prior to Roland Garros, is finding some vintage form in Paris as he popped 29 winners across two hours and 59 minutes to upset the No. 24 seed. The 37-year-old German finds himself ranked No. 137 at the moment, with his career-best ranking being No. 16 in 2012. Kohlschreiber has a 1-0 head-to-head edge against Round 3 foe No. 10 seed Diego Schwartzman
, but that lone matchup came back in 2017 on indoor hard courts.
