The biggest surprise and the great joy for the host nation supporters produced 14-year-old Marie MIGOT, world no. 355, who booked her place among best 128. MIGOT, playing in her first World Championships, was not overawed playing in the famous 12,000 seat Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy, and managed to overcome her more fancied opponents for a dream first round berth.

In the qualifications she overcame Chelsea DGHILL and Johana ARAQUE, whilst in preliminary rounds she overcame Carelyn CORDERO of Puertorico.

Regarding the matches played on day two in Paris MIGOT said: “I had a good preparation for the match. Playing in the morning is not always easy, but we made physical exercises and that made me feel good. The game level was a bit weak today and it helped me to impose my playing style. “

In the first round of the main draw, today, she will meet Tetyana BILENKO of Ukraine.
