The abbreviated 2020 season was full of the unexpected, both on and off the court, and there were results that shocked fans and players alike. Let's take a look at the Top 10 biggest upsets of 2020.

Roland Garros was a tournament full of upsets, especially on the women's side. So it took something really seismic to crack this list.

Playing in just the second Grand Slam of her career, Podoroska joined Belgium's Filip Dewulf (1997) as the only other qualifier in the Open Era reach the semifinals at Roland Garros.

Then ranked No. 131, Podoroska could not overcome the eventual champion, Iga Swiatek, in the semifinals.
