French teen dumps out defending queen in Roland-Garros shock

Diane Parry pulled off an upset against Barbora Krejcikova at the French Open.

  • Defending women’s singles champion Barbora Krejcikova has crashed out in the first round of the French Open, going down in three sets to unseeded teenager Diane Parry.
  • Second seed Krejcikova suffered a 6-1, 2-6, 3-6 defeat at Roland-Garros on Monday, in what was the Czech player’s first match since February after she was sidelined with an elbow injury.

The loss for Krejcikova – who was a surprise winner at last year’s French Open when she was unseeded – makes her just the third female defending champion to see their title defense falter at the first hurdle.

It was a major scalp for French world number 97 Parry, as the 19-year-old home hero progresses to meet Camila Osorio of Colombia in the next round.

Also on Monday, four-time Grand Slam winner Naomi Osaka lost her first-round French Open match at the hands of Amanda Anisimova.

It is the second successive time the American has knocked Osaka out of a major tournament, following Anisimova’s win in their meeting in the third round of the Australian Open back in January.

Elsewhere, women’s world number one Iga Swiatek – the victor in Paris in 2020 – extended her remarkable winning streak to 29 matches as she safely navigated her first-round assignment, easing past Lesia Tsurenko, 6-2 6-0, in 54 minutes.
