Paris, France, 5 June 2023 | Leigh Rogers

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].
