Three Frenchwomen will be on the courts this Wednesday at the Open 6ème Sens – Métropole de Lyon. The day was perfectly launched by a clash of generations between Alizé Cornet, 31, and Clara Burel, 19. It is the younger of the two who offered a great victory proving that she is a good representative of the next generation of French tennis and is progressing very quickly. Fiona Ferro will have to get rid of Tereza Martincova.

The first match of the day in Lyon was very interesting to follow with a 100% French duel. At a complicated start to the year, Alizé Cornet was not reassured by losing against his young compatriot Clara Burel, 6-1, 1-6, 6-3. The match had three stages. Imperial in the first round, the Bretonne, 218th in the world, saw Alizé Cornet come back to a round everywhere, responding tit for tat. The third round was largely dominated by a mature and incisive Clara Burel who managed to stay the course mentally and finish the job on her third match point. This is an important victory for the young Frenchman who watched Alizé Cornet on TV a few months ago. In eighth, the Breton will challenge Aliaksandra Sasnovich.

The last French for this first round Fiona Ferro will also have a lot to do against Tereza Martincova, out of qualifying and who is already playing her third tournament in France. But after her successful run at the Australian Open, the Frenchwoman showed that she had the qualities necessary to get out of this trap.
