Ireland's Georgia Drummy and her Swiss playing partner Simona Waltert reached the end of the road at the French Open Junior Championships as Maria Lourdes Carle and Cori Gauff proved too string in their second-round doubles match.
Rain halted play yesterday evening with Lourdes Carle and Gauff leading 3-2 in the opening set.
Returning this afternoon, Drummy and Waltert held serve and then broke to lead 4-3, but the sixth seeds responded to eventually sneak it 7-5.
Midway through the second set, Lourdes Carle and Gauff broke again to take a 5-3 lead and they held their nerve to progress.
Eighteen-year-old Dubliner Drummy will take lots of positives from another highly respectable showing at a major tournament
Two years ago, she made history when becoming the youngest ever Irish player to qualify for a Junior Grand Slam aged 15, competing at the Junior Australian Open after defeating USA's Helen Abigail Altick.
It’s the end of the road for Georgia Drummy’s French Open Campaign as she is beaten along with her partner Waltert in the second round of the the doubles event by 6th Seeds Carle & Gauff. Hard luck to Georgia and hopefully a busy summer schedule coming up 👏🎾🇮🇪 pic.twitter.com/2RaDNsJYsb— Tennis Ireland (@Tennis_Ireland) June 7, 2018
