Diane Parry in the quarter-finals in Portoroz

Qualified for the third round of the last Roland-Garros then for that of Wimbledon, Diane Parry (71st WTA) continues to consolidate a nice place within the elite of women’s tennis. Thursday, the twenty-year-old Frenchwoman disposed of the Russian Anastasia Potapova in the second round of the WTA 250 tournament in Portoroz, played on hard. Against the Russian, 45th in the world, Parry recovered from a very serious handicap in the first set (1-5) before taking control of the game (7-6, 6-4 in 1h53).

A month and a half ago, Parry had reached his first quarter on the main circuit, on the ground of Palermo, then his first half, on the hard courts of Granby, at the end of August, just before the US Open. 200th in the world a year ago, she will celebrate her arrival in the top 60 if she wins her next match, and even in the top 50, if she were to win her first title on Sunday in Slovenia.

But to already reach a last four again, he will have to come to the end of the winner of the third quarter on Friday, opposing this Thursday afternoon the Briton Emma Raducanu to the German Anna-Lena Friedsam.
