Roland Garros day 7

30 05 2010

The last 2 french women in the draw lost yesterday. Bartoli against Israel’s Peer and crowd favorite Aravene Rezai could not beat Nadia Petrova. The finished a match that ended the night before 7-7 in the third set, Petrova won yesterday 10-8. The good ‘ole days of Mauresmo, Pierce, Tauziat and Golovin are definitely over.Serena had a tough day against Russian junior champ Pavlyuchenkova losing the second set 6-1. Time for Serena to get an injury time-out and a little pill that made it all better!! She won easy in the third 6-2. If Pavlyuchenkova loses a bit weight she can become dangerous in the future with her pounding ground strokes. Two aussies made it to the last 16, lesbian Sam S.WilliamsStosur and Groth. Jelena Jankovic and fav Daniela Hantuchova also won their third round matches yesterday after hard-fought battles against seeded A.Bondarenko and Wickmayer from Belgium.

Aravene Rezai wins big tournament of Madrid

17 05 2010

It was not Venus or Serena Williams, Justine Henin, Jelena Jankovic or one of the Russian ladies. No it was a big surprise in Spain with muslim french girl Rezai winning. She was not even in the top 20 before the tournament started and even though she can play very well and beat almost anyone on a good day during a clay tournament, defeating Williams, Henin and Jankovic all in 1 week is pretty amazing. Serena played the longest match of her entire career!!! against Vera Duchevina in round 2 winning 6-7 7-6 7-6, only to lose the next round against Nadia Petrova. Venus proved in the final that even though her form is pretty decent that on clay she is just not that dangerous. Can Rezai make her country people proud by winning Roland Garros. I doubt it and still go with Justine Henin.
