2012 French Open day 3 recap part 2

After Dulko/Suarez win and Sam Stosur‘s practice session, I made my way to Court 15 for Maria Kirilenko and Flavia Pennetta practice session:

Then I go to Court 17 for the first round match between Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and Greta Arn:

Not a really convincing win for the 19 year old Russian, but only the victory counts: 6-4 6-4 for Pavlyuchenkova.

I head to a packed Court 16 for the doubles match between Ekaterina Makarova/Elena Vesnina and Julia Goerges/Sam Stosur. A couple of spectacular points by Sam Stosur but too many errors for Julia “gorgeous” Goerges. 6-4 6-2 for the solid russian pair.
