Anastasia Rodionova is the last Australian woman remaining in French Open qualifying as she progressed to the final round on Thursday in Paris.

She beat compatriot Olivia Rogowska in their second round match 6-3 6-2, breezing to victory in one hour and 15 minutes.

The win sets up a final round qualifying battle against Julia Glushko of Israel, with the winner taking their place in the French Open main draw, beginning on Sunday.

Casey Dellacqua was the other remaining Australian in action on Thursday, but after winning the first set, fell in an epic three-set battle stretching more than two hours.
