Fourth day in
Paris was very
dramatic, as defending champion and world no 1 Serena Williams lost to Garbine
Muguruza of Spain.
This will surely give sigh of relief to Maria Sharapova who was denied his
second consecutive Roland Garros title last year by Serena Williams. Before Serena,
her elder sister Venus lost to Anna Schmiedlova in 3 sets. Had Both Venus and
Serena won, we could have witnessed one more Williams affair in third round but
that wasn’t to be.
In men’s side, there were not any upset so to say, but I am happy to see Radek Stepanek doing well. He defeated Mikhail Youzhny in four sets and advanced to round3. Djokovic, Federer, Milos Raonic, Jo Wilfred Tsonga and Tommy Robredo all sailed in straight sets.
Spaniard are doing well in French Open and it evident that they love playing in clay. Except Almagro, there are still good players from
alive. It will be interesting to see how far Robredo, Bautista Agut and
Garnollers Pujol go.
As I am writing this, Order of play of day 5 is not out yet, so it is still not certain whether Rafa gets to play in Chatrier or will he have to play in Lenglen again? He plays Dominic Theim of
Let us hope we don’t see any major upsets tomorrow and Rafa is not troubled much against the he hasn’t played even once.
