Léolia Jeanjean, one of the many French women involved in the Lausanne tournament, did not exist during her first round against Emma Navarro, failing to register the slightest game.
No less than six French women are involved in the WTA tournament in Lausanne, with the assurance of having a Blue in the round of 16 since Diane Parry and Fiona Ferro will do battle in the first round. But Léolia Jeanjean did not stay long on Swiss clay. The 164th player in the world could absolutely nothing against the 53rd and seeded n°5, Emma Navarro.
Last March in Monterrey, the American had left only six games for the French. This time they did much better, winning 6-0, 6-0 in 53 minutes! Jeanjean, who hadn’t played since losing in the first round of Wimbledon qualifying a month ago, has completely missed out on his return to competition. Author of five double faults and 59% of first serves, the Frenchwoman lost her service six times, while her opponent had not the slightest break point to defend, while she only served 50% of first serves.
Navarro of formidable efficiency
In the first set, Emma Navarro, recent finalist of the ITF Bastad tournament, had a resounding success: three successful breaks on three occasions and only six points lost on her face-off. In the second, she again broke on her first chance at 0-0 and 4-0, and on her third at 2-0, and this time she only lost four points on her serve. A perfect match, therefore, which allows him to challenge Clara Burel or Olga Danilovic in the next round. As for Léolia Jeanjean, she will head to Brazil to compete in ITF tournaments. And forget this bitter defeat…
