Montreal’s Francoise Abanda earned a spot in the main draw of the U.S. Open Friday with a 6-0 6-2 win over Misa Eguchi Friday. 

The victory, her third straight qualifier triumph, opened the door for the 17-year-old's first Grand Slam play.

Abanda, ranked 205th in the world, needed to sit through a lengthy rain delay in the victory.

Abanda was impressive in her qualifiers, losing only six games in the course of the three matches.

Abanda beat Romanian Andreaa Mitu 6-1, 6-1, Wednesday and Nao Hibino of Japan 6-1, 6-1, Thursday.
