Galina Voskoboeva def Johanna Konta 4-6, 6-3, 7-5

British no. 3, Johanna Konta put up a big fight against the 10th Seed Galina Voskoboeva, but was just edged out in the final set in the second qualifying singles round.

It was another good start by the teenager, who took the first set with a single break margin.

But she was not able to repeat the feat in the second set, as Voskoboeva levelled the match.

The final set was a tighter affair, and the Brit fought hard, but was agonisingly edged out 7-5.

The main draw for the championships takes place on Friday 24th May at 11:30 (CET), in the Museum of the French Tennis Federation.

The draw will be attended by 2012 champions Rafael Nadal and Maria Sharapova.

In a first for the Roland-Garros tournament, the draw will be broadcast live via, as well as on two giant screens in the Roland-Garros stadium.
