PARIS (AP) - Vania King of the United States came back to edge Elena Baltacha of Britain 4-6, 6-1, 6-4 Thursday in the French Open’s second round.

The 115th-ranked King is in the third round of a Grand Slam tournament for only the second time in 20 tries.

She and Bethanie Mattek-Sands, who won Wednesday, are the first women other than Venus and Serena Williams to make it this far at Roland Garros since 2006.
