Roland Garros day 4

27 05 2010

Today on day 5 it is raining and play has not started yet and yesterday it was also a bit of a rainy day. I think only 3/4 of the planned women’s matches were played. Venus and her dress won easy as well as Wozniacki, Petrova and Pennetta. If Wozniacki can get her game back a bit more she could be a serious contender on the clay because she makes very few errors. Crowd favorite Rezai and Kuznetsova had a very tough round against talented germans Kerber and Petkovic. Rezai won 6-2 2-6 6-3 and Kuznetsova won 4-6 7-5 6-4. Petkovic had 4 match points! in the second set and was close to a huge upset but totally chokes and made 4 unforced errors. Svetlana got lucky but in this form she will not be a contender for the title.The only small upset was Polona Herzog beating the 24th seed Lucie Safarova 6-1 6-2. Herzog is sure one to keep an eye on the next few years.
