Stopped dead by Ons Jabeur in the third round of Wimbledon, Diane Parry has regrets, but also shows her satisfaction at having passed two more rounds in the Grand Slam.
As at Roland-Garros, Diane Parry’s great adventure ended in the third round of Wimbledon on Friday. The young Boulonnaise (19) failed to find the solutions against Ons Jabeur. The Tunisian, world number two, easily won (6-2, 6-3), in just 1h05 of play. Parry, who accumulated 24 unforced errors, then admitted that there was “a very big gap ” with her opponent, victorious in recent weeks in Madrid, for her first crown in the WTA 1000, then last month in Berlin.
“I couldn’t free myself”
And the one who points to 77th in the world was “obviously very disappointed with what (she has) produced. I couldn’t put up more resistance than that. I struggled with his ball quality. I had a lot of trouble finding the distance with the ball because of the wind, which made me commit a lot of mistakes. And I failed to free myself in my strikes. It was a little balanced at one point, but it was quite irregular“, she confided, in remarks relayed by The Team.
If Parry has “the impression of not being able to see everything that (he) misses”, she is also positive, after having passed two rounds for her big debut at Wimbledon. “I did not expect at the start of the season to do two third rounds in the Grand Slam, and that’s positive. It makes me want to go further”continues the pupil of Gonzalo Lopez Sanchis, who will unfortunately not reap the fruits of his London career in the WTA rankings, the ATP and WTA points having been frozen on this edition of Wimbledon deprived of Russian and Belarusian players.
