How’s that for some weirdness? For a first day of a slam, the dudes were filled with more drama than people knew what to do with… and the ladies pretty well showed up, took care of business, and went home. That’s some scary stuff.
No, L-Rob didn’t win, but since this will be her only match, I figured she deserves some respect to get a pic in here somewhere. Hell, nothing else fun happened. She lost 6-3, 7-6(5) to the former world number 1. Not an embarrassing scoreline whatsoever. Sucks that she can’t get just one main draw win under her belt, but hell. Plenty of time for that.
The one major upset (notice how I didn’t use the word “surprise”) comes from Ms. French Open, Franny, who lost to big hitting Dushevina in three sets. This… really doesn’t surprise me. Or probably any die hard fan. I mean, it’s Franny. On grass. Yeah.
The only other seed to lose was the 34th seed, K-Bond, to Hungary’s Greta Arn (wut?). All others won, most in straight sets, including Kim, Venus, Nads, Justine, Shahar and Kiri. Oh, and CanWoz won too, which is a yay.
