Heads, and no less, fell on Monday, May 23, during the first matches of the second day of the Roland-Garros tournament, on Monday, May 23.

In addition, Japan’s Naomi Osaka stuttered her tennis again, while Poland’s Iga Swiatek won easily.

  • Diane Parry’s feat

In the women’s draw, the big surprise on Monday came from France’s Diane Parry, who beat Barbora Krejcikova 1-6, 6-2, 6-3 in 2:08. After a timid first set, the young niçoise (19), 97th in the world, managed to take off on the Philippe Chatrier court, covered by the rain that fell on Paris.

Solid from the baseline, with a one-handed backhand that hurt her rival, capable of changing the game, the Frenchwoman knew how to keep a cool head at the time of the conclusion. “It’s a dream for me. Playing on this court with the French public to support me, Diane Parry declared at the microphone of France Television after the meeting. It’s never easy to start in this type of match against the number two in the world. I told myself that I had nothing to lose, that I had to play my game, be aggressive… I tried not to think too much, play the points one after another. »

Junior world number 1 in 2019, Diane Parry is having a great season. Clay is her favorite surface. Trained by Spaniard Gonzalo López, she reached her first final on the WTA circuit in November in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Two weeks later, she won her first tournament in Montevideo, Uruguay.

Diane Parry’s win is a bright spot on the tricolor field, where good news is rare. Hours earlier, Océane Dodin, 25 and 84 in the world, was beaten by Germany’s Andrea Petkovic 6-4, 6-2. On Sunday, all four French women in the race had been eliminated.


  • The short stay of Naomi Osaka
On Court Suzanne-Lenglen, Japan's Naomi Osaka lost 7-5, 6-4 to American Amanda Anisimova in the first round at Roland-Garros.

It’s over for former world number one Naomi Osaka. The Japanese lost in the first round to American Amanda Anisimova 7-5, 6-4. This is not a big surprise since the latter, 28Y in the WTA rankings, she was recently a quarterfinalist in Madrid and Rome.

For her part, Naomi Osaka, double winner of the Australian Open (2019 and 2021) and the US Open (2018 and 2020), has only been able to play two matches on clay this season due to discomfort in her left Achilles tendon, which she manipulated several times during the match. Playing on and off, the Japanese committed 29 unforced errors and 8 double faults. Too many to hope to get by against the solid American.

At Roland-Garros, Poland's Iga Swiatek swept Ukraine's Lesia Tsurenko 6-2, 6-0 in just 54 minutes.

World number one and favorite for the women’s tournament, Poland’s Iga Swiatek impressed with her entrance on court Philippe-Chatrier by sweeping Ukrainian qualifier Lesia Tsurenko in 54 minutes, 6-2, 6-0. In this first leg – under the closed roof of the Central to escape the Parisian rain – Tsurenko scored only ten points in the first set, and twelve in the second.

After rising to number one in the world following the surprise retirement of Australia’s Ashleigh Barty in March, Iga Swiatek has been unstoppable ever since. Winner in Doha, Indian Wells, Miami, Stuttgart and Rome, the Pole is now on a string of 29 wins in a row.
