Emerson Jones continues winning run at Roland Garros
Australia's Emerson Jones is through to the third round in the girls' singles competition at Roland Garros.
Emerson Jones has recorded another major milestone at Roland Garros.
A day after posting her first win in Paris, the 14-year-old from the Gold Coast has continued her impressive run in the girls’ singles competition to advance to a Grand Slam third round for the first time.
Jones survived a spirited challenge from Japan’s Hayu Kinoshita, before eventually prevailing 7-6(0) 2-6 6-3 in their second-round clash.
The world No.18’s previous best junior Grand Slam singles result was reaching the second round in her debut at the Australian Open in January.
Jones, the highest-ranked 2008-born player in the world, now meets reigning Australian Open girls’ singles champion Alina Korneeva in the third round.
Currently ranked No.3, the 15-year-old Korneeva peaked at world No.1 in the junior rankings last month.
In boys’ singles action, Aussie qualifier Charlie Camus pushed a seeded opponent to three sets.
Japan’s No.12 seed Rei Sakamoto finished strongly in a 6-7(7) 6-1 6-1 first-round victory against Camus.
It wasn’t all bad news for the 16-year-old from Canberra, who later notched a first-round doubles win.
World No.50 Camus and Czech partner Jan Hrazdil needed only 50 minutes to record a 6-3 6-1 victory against Turkey’s Atakan Karahan and Russian Danil Panarin.
Hayden Jones’ doubles campaign, however, ended with a heart-breaking loss.
World No.43 Jones, the 16-year-old brother of Emerson, and American partner Kaylan Bigun led 7-0 in a deciding match tiebreak, but were unable to maintain this advantage.
Romanian Mihai Alexandru Coman and Sweden’s Kevin Edengren roared back to win 6-4 6-7(3) [10-8].
