Rebecca Marino eliminated from French Open qualifying
Canadian climbed to 147 in rankings after win in Japan last week
Canada's Rebecca Marino fell just short in a second-round qualifying match for the French Open on Thursday.
Players need to win three rounds to secure a spot in the main draw, which starts this weekend.
The 28-year-old Marino won three more points than Rybakina during the match, but converted on just three of 10 break-point opportunities. Rybakina, ranked 135th in the world, was 3-for-4 in the same category.
The 28-year-old Marino climbed to No. 147 in the world rankings after winning the ITF Kurume title in Japan last weekend.
A former top-40 player, Marino returned to full-time play last season after taking a five-year break from the sport.
The draw for the second Grand Slam of the season will be held later Thursday.
