After knocking down title holder Barbora Krejcikova, Diane Parry confirmed her great dispositions at Roland Garros this year. The 19-year-old Frenchwoman, while mastering, dominated this Wednesday the Colombian Camila Osorio (6-3, 6-3). She is therefore the first tricolor, men and women combined, of the fortnight to qualify for the 3rd round.
Diane Parry, it’s strong! Falling Monday to the holder of the title Barbora Krejcikova, the 19-year-old Frenchwoman wanted to continue writing her story at Roland Garros this year. On the Simonne-Mathieu court, in the wake of the marathon between Carlos Alcaraz and Albert Ramos-Vinolas, she showed character and mastery to eliminate Colombian Camila Osorio in two dry sets (6-3, 6-3).
Diane Parry is thus the first French woman to qualify for the 3rd round of this edition, men and women combined. This is already better than last year since no tricolor had crossed the obstacle of the second round. Hugo Gaston, Gilles Simon, Léolia Jeanjean, Caroline Garcia, and Alizé Cornet have the opportunity, this Thursday on the courts, to join their youngest.
Guaranteed to play in the third round, Diane Parry will face Friday the American Sloane Stephens, faller of Sorana-Mihaela Cirstea.
