Parry extinguished Putintseva

Diane Parry qualified for the quarter-finals of the WTA tournament in Palermo by defeating the number 2 seed Yulia Putintseva.

Diane Parry continues her career in Palermo. On Sicilian clay, the Habs emerged victorious from their duel with Yulia Putintseva, seeded number 2 in two sets. The Kazakh started with a bang with the break taken from the very first game but the 39th in the world then deflated like a breath. Surgical on her two break points, Diane Parry turned the first set in her favor thanks to a series of four games won consecutively. Leading four games to one, the 86th in the world was able to manage her advantage and, without being put in difficulty on her serve, she was able to conclude this first set as soon as the opportunity arose. The start of the second round turned out to be less animated. Indeed, it was not until the fifth game to see a break opportunity but Diane Parry failed to materialize it.

Parry found the key

However, feeling that there was something to play for, the Niçoise continued in this direction. If the success was not there two games later, Yulia Putintseva holding on and keeping her service, the insistence of the Habs ended up paying. Indeed, on a white game, Diane Parry finally managed to break the Kazakh. Back to the wall, the seeded number 2 in Palermo threw all his forces into battle and wavered his opponent. Twice, the French had a break point to dismiss, which was done without difficulty. It was then time to conclude this round of 16 and the first match point was the right one (6-3, 6-4 in 1h26′). For the first time this season, Diane Parry qualifies for the quarter-finals of a WTA tournament, with seed number 6 Irina-Camelia Begu who will be her opponent on the road to the last four.
