Diane Parry Falls Short Against Elina Svitolina in Second Round at Roland Garros

Diane Parry Falls Short Against Elina Svitolina in Second Round at Roland Garros

Her first lap against Fiona Ferro reassured her about the condition of her thigh and her feelings. It wasn’t enough for Diane Parry to overcome the Elina Svitolina obstacle. Facing the Ukrainian (19th in the WTA), the French number 3 (63rd) logically lost in two frustrating sets (6-4, 7-6 [3]).

Although she erased an entry break in both sets, Parry ended up paying for her unfavorable fault ratio and left the tournament in the second round, like last year. “It’s a shame because people were starting to arrive on Chatrier,” she observed. In these cases, we want to take the match to a third set but I did not succeed. »

Too irregular to hope for better

Capable of stringing together magnificent shots – like these Mary Pierce-style topspin volleys or these accelerations which left her opponent ten meters away – and gross unforced errors, the Boulonnaise was too irregular to hope for better. Perhaps she also paid for her truncated preparation, because she had difficulty containing Svitolina’s aggressiveness.

Two years after her resounding victory at Roland against Barbora Krejcikova, then title holder, Parry is still awaiting confirmation in the Grand Slam, where she has never reached the second week, even if she has passed a milestone in recent months, between her tour in South America at the end of 2023 (two finals) and on hard court this winter. At 21, she is aware that she still has “a good margin of progress” on several levels, starting with this consistency, “that it is not too up and down, not doing three good points followed by three bad ones. “.
