Diane Parry eliminated in the first round of the US Open

Diane Parry did not make it past the first round of the US Open. The Frenchwoman, ranked 74th, had a card to play against an opponent who plays in the same ranking zone as her (75th), but it was Xiyu Wang who won in three sets (5-7 , 6-3, 6-3).

The first heat had been a real showdown between the two women, but Parry had managed to break at the right time to take the lead. Alas, it was she who quickly gave up her serve at the start of the second set. At 2-1 in favor of the Chinese, the two players requested a medical time-out to each treat their right thigh. A long interruption more beneficial to Wang than to Parry who clearly suffered the game until the loss of the second set.

Despite a break in her favor in the first game, Parry was no more dashing. Not only did Wang break in stride, but she also took Parry’s next serve to break away 4-1. The Chinese had obviously taken over in this match. And despite visible tension in the last games, the Chinese resisted attempts to destabilize the French. Wang will challenge Maria Sakkari in the next round.
