Where did Shelby Rogers come from? The 23-year-old is actually from Charleston, S.C., but she's been a revelation here in Paris. After knocking off No. 17 seed Karolina Pliskova in the first round, she took down Elena Vesnina of Russia 6-4, 6-2 in the second round. That earns her a third-round match with No. 10 seed Petra Kvitova. Rogers was 2-8 in Grand Slam play before last year's US Open, but won two matches there. Now she's taken four of her past five matches in majors.
