For the last three days the world of tennis has turned its full attention to the Tennis Club de Paris, where the second Grand Slam of the year its taking place.
The French Open or Roland Garros gathers the top 100 men and women in the ATP and WTA circuits for single and double matches, unveiling lots of action and new tennis promises during the next two full weeks.
On the women´side we find a pretty interesting first round despite the obvious rain delays as Australian Sam Stosur 2010 French Open runner up managed her way through Kimiko Date-Krumm for a final score of 6-0, 6-2.
Sam Stosur is currently in number 9 position in the rankings and she is a clear contender to win the title as the red surface seems to noticeable improve her already power-striking skills.
On the other hand, the top three leading ladies; Serena Williams, defending champion Maria Sharapova and #4 seeded Agnieszka Radwanska had good starts. Sharapova was on the court for less than one hour and defeated Hsieh Su-wei of Taiwan in 2 quick sets 6-2, 6-1.
On Day 2, there was even more tennis action as French wild-card Gael Monfils stunned Czech Tomas Berdych 7-6 (8), 6-4, 6-7 (3), 6-7 (4), 7-5.
Seven-time French Open winner, Spaniard Rafael Nadal had a shaky start against German Daniel Brands. Many Nadal´s fans thought this was deja vu as the German built his way in the first sets by hitting big while Nadal seemed out of pace. Less than a year ago at Wimbledon, Lukas Rosol a 100th ATP ranked produced a pretty ugly upset on Nadal´s road to achieve another Grand Slam title.
