Paris, France, 6 June 2023 | Leigh Rogers

Ellen Perez is enjoying a career-best run at Roland Garros.

The 27-year-old Australian has progressed to the women’s doubles quarterfinals alongside American partner Nicole Melichar-Martinez.

The sixth seeds are now looking to reach their second Grand Slam semifinal as a team. This would match their effort at last year’s US Open.

World No.15 Perez, who had never previously advanced past the second round at Roland Garros, is thrilled to have improved on her and Melichar-Martinez’s first-round exit at last year’s tournament.

“I feel like my game is in a pretty good place, and this time around, there’s nothing really to lose,” Perez wrote earlier in the tournament.

Australia also has a strong presence in junior doubles, with Lily Taylor, Emerson Jones and Charlie Camus all scheduled to compete on day 10.

Roland Garros is broadcast live in Australia on the Nine Network and Stan Sport, with coverage beginning from 6.30pm AEST.
