Diane Parry confirmed her feat in the first round at the expense of defending champion Barbora Krejcikova by silently dismissing Colombian Camila Osorio in the 2nd round to reach the 3rd round of Roland-Garros, which none of the other four blues contested on Wednesday he succeeded. .
. Pass: Parry third
“I have no intention of stopping here!” Diane Parry warned after beating Colombian Camila Osorio (66th) 6-3, 6-3 in 1:18.
At 19, he will play for the first time in the third round of a Grand Slam tournament, having reached second place in Paris in 2019 when he was still a junior.
“It’s pure happiness and I will do my best to get as far as possible,” he said.
We’ll have to start by firing American Sloane Stephens (64th), a 2018 Roland-Garros finalist and winner of the 2017 US Open.
He will be a “good opponent” who has “a lot of Grand Slam experience”, said Parry who intends to “keep giving (his) best and producing (his) best possible game”.
“Like today, I’m going to have to be aggressive and super solid,” he said.
He already considers his tournament a success “because it is (his) best Grand Slam result at the moment”. However, “he doesn’t intend to stop here,” he caught in a tone full of serenity.
. Breaks: Jacquemot, Gasquet, Barrère and Moutet
For Elsa Jacquemot in the women’s draw, as for Grégoire Barrère, Richard Gasquet and Corentin Moutet in the men’s draw, the bar was too high.
Jacquemot (215th) resisted well but could only bow to German Angelique Kerber (17th) 6-1, 7-6 (7/2).
“It was my first match at the Philippe-Chatrier. It’s an amazing track. It wasn’t easy. Going up that track was magical,” he commented.
Despite several games, the 19-year-old Frenchwoman, former junior champion of the Porte d’Auteuil, did not know how to take advantage of her opportunities. He only converted one break point of 11 and his 44 winning shots were thwarted by his 40 unforced errors.
Speaking of bar height, the one offered to Barrère (209) was strictly speaking: the American giant John Isner (2.08 m) bent slightly but it was the Frenchman who broke with an ace 23 of the 26th World Cup winner who won 6-4. , 6-4, 3-6, 7-6, (7/5).
Gasquet (70th) was also too short, although he did not find a great Sebastian Korda (30th).
“Honestly, it’s more on the tennis level than I’ve lost and nothing on the physical level,” admitted the 35-year-old Frenchman after losing 7-6 (7/5), 6-3, 6 -3.
The Frenchman, a semi-finalist in Geneva just before Roland-Garros, had not been in the 2nd round of the Paris Major since 2018, when he was defeated by Rafael Nadal in the 3rd round. The same Christmas he had won last year in the second round.
This year, after a first lap that was divided into two days by the rain, the Biterrois resisted 2h19 before laying down their weapons, not without having inflamed the audience of the Suzanne-Lenglen track with some of its magical, precise setbacks. , powerful. or cushioned.
Gasquet took part in his 19th Roland-Garros where he reached the quarterfinals in 2016, overtaken by Andy Murray, then 2nd in the world.
“I think I’ll be there next year. I’m pretty sure. You never know what might happen in tennis, but in any case, the desire is there to continue. I don’t have, I don’t want to stop at all,” he said. to say.
Finally, Moutet (139th and guest) dreamed of facing Rafael Nadal: on Wednesday he was given the opportunity, in addition to the Central where the Spaniard wrote much of his legend lifting 13 times the Copa de Musketeers.
In a one-way match, Moutet will be -satisfied- with being able to get his face out of Nadal twice in the third set, but logically he lost 6-3, 6. -1, 6-4 in 2:09 . .
