Shahar Pe’er progressed to the second round of the Roland Garros qualifiers on Wednesday, beating Sara Sorribes Tormo of Spain 6-2, 6-4 in a rain-interrupted match.
Pe’er, ranked No. 119 in the world, needs two more wins to qualify for the main draw and will face Patricia Maria Tig (176) of Romania in the second round on Thursday.
Julia Glushko (116) is set to plummet down the WTA rankings after losing in the first round of the qualifiers to Australian Anastasia Rodionova (166) 0-6, 6-4, 7-5. Glushko reached the third round of the main draw in Paris last year.
