Andreeva the Russian nugget

For a place in the knockout rounds, Andreeva will face outgoing finalist world No. 6 Coco Gauff or Austrian Julia Grahber (61st). So far, the Russian teenager has not lost a set at Porte d'Auteuil, including his three qualifying rounds.

In the first round, Andreeva didn't even need an hour to defeat American Alison Riske-Amritraj (85th) 6-2, 6-1. On the Simonne-Mathieu court Thursday afternoon, she did not last long either (1h17 min). Fourteen months ago, Andreeva was not yet classified. And a year ago, she reached the quarterfinals of the junior tournament on the Parisian clay. His qualification for the third round already guarantees him a place in the top 100 at the end of Roland-Garros.
