The French Diane Parry and Chloé Paquet acquired their qualifications for the second round of the WTA tournament in Lausanne on Tuesday.
A little over a month after her defeat against Fiona Ferro at Contrexville on the Challenger circuit, Diane Parry took her revenge. This Tuesday in Lausanne, the young 20-year-old player stifled her elder in return for service with an incredible rate of 53% of points in this unique compartment. The one who spent a round this year at Roland-Garros and Wimbledon won in three sets after 2:15 (7-5, 2-6, 6-2).
The No.9 seed on clay in Switzerland will meet Montenegrin Danka Kovinic in the second round. In the first round in Lausanne, Chloé Paquet also confirmed her qualification against the Hungarian Reka-Luca Jani (7-5, 6-2). However, the result in two sets does not really reflect the physiognomy of a meeting which lasted 1h49.
Balanced in the first round, the meeting ended up taking a different turn thanks to the two breaks converted by the Frenchwoman who at the same time found a good solidity in the service. In the second round, Chloé Paquet will have to get rid of the Russian Elina Avanesyan to go one step further in Switzerland.
