British trio fail to make the French Open | Ralph-Lauren

Must Read


British players endured a fruitless day in French Open qualifying at Roland Garros, with Samantha Murray, Jay Clarke and Jodie Burrage all crashing out.

The trio were bidding to emulate Liam Broady and Harriet Dart, both of whom had kept their main draw hopes alive with victories on Monday.

But Murray never got going against her Dutch opponent Richel Hogenkamp and too many unforced errors handed her opponent a 6-3 6-4 win.

Clarke clawed his way into a final set against Filip Horansky but, after a streak of five games without a hold of serve, it was the Slovakian player who emerged with a 6-3 4-6 6-3 win.

Burrage, handed her chance in the draw as a late replacement, charged into a 4-0 lead against Romanian 14th seed Irina Bara, but won just one of the next 12 games and fell 7-5 6-3.
