Paris, France, 17 May 2022 | Leigh Rogers

Australian players are producing some impressive performances in Roland Garros 2022 qualifying.

Lizette Cabrera needed only 67 minutes to defeat French wildcard Emeline Darton in first-round action in Paris, scoring a comfortable 6-3 6-1 victory. This matches the 24-year-old’s career-best result at Roland Garros, having also previously progressed to the qualifying second round in 2018.

The world No.181’s victory means five Australian women have now advanced to the second round. This is the most to reach this stage in a Roland Garros women’s qualifying singles draw since 1978.

Ellen Perez was hoping to make it six, however was beaten by Switzerland’s Susan Bandecchi 6-4 6-2 in their first-round clash today.
