2012 French Open day 3 recap part 1

Unlike yesterday, a lot of women’s tennis for me today at Roland Garros, and a little bit of Rafa.
But first, I would like to congratulate Virginie Razzano for her incredible win over Serena Williams. There is no more deserving player than her. So happy for her.

Like yesterday, I didn’t stick to my plan. Court 2 was already packed at 11 o’ clock, so no Ferrer for me.

On Court 9, Donald Young at practice:

Young lost to Grigor Dimitrov later in the afternoon. He is 2-12 this season.

But Court 15 was the place to be, as 6 time Roland Garros champion Rafael Nadal was practising there before his first round match against Bolelli. I can’t be in two places at the same time, but I did manage to get a glimpse at Rafa. Well, at his cap…
