The Frenchwoman defeated Australian Jaimee Fourlis in three sets. She will therefore participate in the main draw of the tournament.
The French Fiona Ferro managed to get out of qualifying and will therefore play the main draw of Roland-Garros, after overcoming, on Friday, the Australian Jaimee Fourlis 6-3, 2-6, 6-4.
Former world No.39, Ferro, 26, has fallen to 462nd in the WTA and has not passed a round at a Grand Slam tournament since 2021.
She will have a new chance thanks to her victory after a 2h22 fight against the 23-year-old Australian, world N.150. Ferro had obtained a first match point on his opponent’s service, at 5-3 in the third set, at the cost of a long exchange, but had cracked in stride.
She finally converted her second chance, this time serving.
