Swan and Watson move step closer to French Open main draw

Katie Swan and Heather Watson moved into the second round of French Open qualifying with victories at Roland Garros on Wednesday.

Swan’s win was particularly impressive, the 20-year-old overcoming a rankings gap of more than 100 places to beat second seed Jil Teichmann 6-4 6-2 in just an hour and nine minutes.

It was Swan’s second career victory over a top-100 player and booked a second-round clash with China’s Wang Xiyu.
