Roland Garros day 3

26 05 2010

Henin, Sharapova, Hantuchova, Wickmayer and Bartoli were easy winners in their first rounds at Roland Garros. One match certainly was the highlight of the day and not because the level was so high, but it sure was dramatic. Kimiko Date Krumm, the 40-year old veteran from Japan beat last year’s finalist Dinara Safina in three sets. The first set was a quick 5-0 for Safina who on the set 6-3.In the second set Safina lead 2-0, but it went downhill from there. Safina has been seriously injured for the start of the year and came back only weeks ago but hitting so many errors is a shame. She even lead 4-2 in the third eventually losing 6-3 4-6 5-7. In the last game Safina hit 4 unforced errors in a row against a Date who injured herself on her calve and could barely walk. This Date comeback is getting better and better though, she plays so extremely smart. A nice counter-balance to the tons of ball-bashers on tour right now.
