Roland Garros 2013: day 1 recap part 1

As I’ve already told you, I’ll spend most of the week at Roland Garros. I’m pretty excited to finally watch some live tennis, as my last tournament was Bercy last November.

My first day at Roland Garros started pretty well, with a smiling Vika hitting on court 9:

A great start for Ivanovic who lead 4-0 after 13 minutes of play. She struggled in the second set but managed to advance to the second round after an inconsistent and rather unimpressive 6-1 3-6 6-3 victory over Petra Martic.
