French Open 2022
Dates: May 22–Jun 5
Venue: Roland Garros, Paris
World number one Iga Swiatek underlined why she is the overwhelming favourite for the French Open with a rapid first-round win over Lesia Tsurenko.
Poland's Swiatek showed all her quality in a 6-2 6-0 victory that took just 54 minutes on Court Philippe Chatrier.
The 20-year-old, who won Roland Garros in 2020, extended her winning streak to 29 matches by beating the Ukrainian.
But defending champion Barbora Krejcikova and four-time Grand Slam champion Naomi Osaka were knocked out.
Czech second seed Krejcikova, who has been sidelined this year with an elbow injury, looked like she was heading for a straightforward win before French 19-year-old Diane Parry fought back to triumph 1-6 6-2 6-3 in front of a delighted home crowd on Chatrier.
Japanese former world number one Osaka was beaten 7-5 6-4 by Amanda Anisimova in a high quality encounter.
American Anisimova, who reached the French Open semi-finals in 2019, will face Croatia's Donna Vekic in round two.
