Roland Garros 2013: day 2 recap

No big names like yesterday (I had ground passes today), but some interesting matches and practice sessions.

I arrived quite late today and headed to court 9 to watch Mikhail Youhzny and John Isner at practice:

All the courts were packed, so I made my way to court 17 to catch a bit of Oudin against Paszek.

20 minutes to play 3 games, it was a pain to watch and I left Court 17 for Court 10.

Ryan Harrison vs Andrey Kuznetsov

Sitting front row, I was able to watch the two young guns battle, but also to follow Nadal’s match on the big screen in front of Court Suzanne Lenglen.
