Erakovic At Roland Garros
New Zealand No1 Marina Erakovic is set to play Japan's Shiho Hisamatsu in the first round of qualifying at Roland Garros.

The 18-year-old Aucklander who will have coach Michiel Schapers with her is currently ranked at 275 while her opponent is 202.

The pair played last year in Japan with Erakovic coming out the victor in a tough straight set match. Erakovic has spent a week training in the Netherlands with her new Dutch coach.

Good luck Marina
Clay is very foreign to you, but rack up some points you have lost through injury...
All the best :kiss:

Well, Natalie closed out the third set 6-0. :eek: Perhaps it was injury that caused Marina, but I Natalie recently closed Kirsten Flipkens out 6-0 in a third in Prague. Well done to Natalie. Too bad for Marina. :sad:
