Completely missed the first round, Léolia Jeanjean tried to reverse the trend but ended up losing in two sets against Elina Avanesyan in the second round of Roland-Garros.
The French players have disappeared from the lower part of the Roland-Garros table. A few hours after the setback conceded by Caroline Garcia, it is Léolia Jeanjean who stops in the second round of the French Open with a defeat against Elina Avanesyan, who was drafted after being beaten in the final round of qualifying. On the Simonne-Mathieu court, the 124th in the world was as if missing during a hasty first round. Indeed, after having put the Russian in difficulty on her first service, the Habs were not able to keep hers. More at ease with her commitment, Elina Avanesyan has constantly undermined that of the 124th in the world. Converting her second break point and then winning her shutout, the 134th in the world was able to lead five games to nothing. The second set point on her opponent’s serve allowed the Russian to win the first set without conceding game and in just 23 minutes.
Jeanjean woke up but without changing the situation
Unable to do better, Léolia Jeanjean approached the second set with a different state of mind.. After saving a break point on her first service game, the native of Montpellier went to take that of Elina Avanesyan. However, this advantage did not last very long. After a sixth game won white, the Russian was able to come back up. While the two players held each other apart for the rest of this second set, everything indicated that a decisive game was going to come to decide between them. But the 134th World had another idea in mind. Offering herself without firing three match points on her opponent’s commitment, Elina Avanesyan saw Léolia Jeanjean save the first but not the second. The Russian thus validates her ticket for the third round (6-0, 7-5 in 1h14 ‘) and will face Clara Tauson, from qualifying. The Dane dismissed US Open 2021 finalist Leylah Fernandez in three sets (6-3, 5-7, 6-4 in 2h24 ‘).
