The 2nd round is going to begin with five italians that will play and there isn't a thread for them yet
I'm very lazy, but i suffer without it
Here's the summary of the first round
Mara Santangelo d. 24 Tathiana Golovin FRA 64 46 64
The surprise! I'm sure about Mara strength, but i didnt' expected this win, also if AO is good for her. I'm so glad for this win! She could reach the third round (but against Srebotnik won't be easy). Good luck Mara!
Maria Elena Camerin d. Q Yvonne Meuberger AUT 64 62
Finally a good win after too matches lost. Maria Elena needs to find confidence. Let's hope it succeeds. I'm afraid she'll stop in 2nd round, however good luck against Bychova!
Roberta Vinci ITA d. Meghann Shaughnessy USA 75 64
Well done Roberta! Meghan is always a difficult opponent... now good luck against Bartoli
Roby can do it but it's difficult forecast the winner. If she pass the round there's Kim
20 Flavia Pennetta d. Q Cara Black ZIM 62 26 63
Flavia... it's Flavia!
one set lost against Cara Black, otherwise it was too easy
She is strong enough to reach the 4th round (she should beat Sucha, she can beat also Vaidisova), then probably there will be Mauresmo... who can say?
Good luck beauty!
15 Francesca Schiavone d. Antonella Serra Zanetti 62 75
Sorry for Antonella, but Francesca deserves it. She is in a fantastic period and she's going to reach her best ranking. Only Justine stop her in Sidney. Castano and Groenefeld are with her capabilities. In the 4th round there's Kim
Good luck Francesca!
19 Dinara Safina RUS d. Tathiana Garbin 60 61
The only sorrow of this first round.
It seems Tathiana lost without playing. Good luck for the next tournament!
