After Li Na and Stéphanie Foretz practice sessions, I head back to Court 17 to watch the third set between Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and Melinda Czink. Another ugly win for the Russian, but a win is a win. 4-6 6-3 6-3 for Anastasia who will face Klara Zakopalova in the third round.

NB: this is a recap of MY day at Roland Garros, so if you are looking for the complete scores and results, go to the official Roland Garros website, you won’t find it in my recap.

As usual, before going to a tournament, I have a look at the schedule to try to plan the matches I want to watch.
My intention was to watch Lleyton Hewitt on Court 7 for perhaps his last match at Roland Garros, but I didn’t manage to get there early enough, so no Hewitt for me, Court 7 was already full.
So, change of plan, direction court 9, where Philip Kohlschreiber and Ruben Ramirez Hidalgo are practising.
Later in the afternoon Kohlscheiber would win over Matthew Ebden and Ramirez would lose against Milos Raonic.
