Misa will play Severine Bremond (31) in the first round. If she wins, she'll probably face Shenay Perry. Could she make it to the third round, she might meet Serena Williams again.

Misa's part of the draw:

Séverine Bremond FRA [31] vs. Michaëlla Krajicek NED
Olivia Sanchez FRA [WC] vs. Shenay Perry USA
Milagros Sequera VEN vs. Virginie Razzano FRA
Tszvetana Pironkova BUL vs. Serena Williams USA [8]

Good luck Misa!

By the way she's still the next one to be seeded if any seed withdraws before the schedule of play for Sundays will be released. So then she'll be somewhere else in the draw.

Pfff, why don't you start with a seeded player again, Misa? That girl does not have any luck in her GS draws. Bremond certainly will be tough and has home advantage, good luck Misa, kick some French ass!!

She had some luck down under, and lost. I think this draw isn't that bad. I have a pretty good feeling about it (hope I'm not proven wrong next week!).

Well I'm not entirely happy with the draw. While Bremond's at least only 31st seed, we all know what happened in Hobart, and that was on one of Misa's BETTER surfaces. Although Bremond hasn't exactly been playing well lately, Misa's been up and down all year. I think if she can beat Bremond, she has a good shot at the 3rd round. That would be nice, as then it's not so much pressure to defend all those Rosmalen points. ;)

Good luck tomorrow.

Good, convincing victory by Misa! She beat Bremond 6-3 6-3 to win her first match at Roland Garros. :)
She started slow, 0-2, but then her shots were steady and Bremond started to make lots of errors.

Anyway, finally a second round at a Grand Slam again and good prospects even for a third round!

Next match will be tomorrow (wednesday) against Shenay Perry. She should win that.
The match will be played at court #12. Don't know if there are camera's. If not, the NOS will probably have a camera, but I don't know if they can show it live.

But she won! 6-4 5-7 6-1. Crucial game was at 3-1 in the third set with Perry serving. Misa took the game on her 4th breakpoint and Perry's resistance was gone.

Next up: Serena Williams (probably). Good luck Misa!

That makes three matches, three wins!

Probably tomorrow she will face Serena Williams. They first met in Rome a couple of weeks ago, where Misa lost to Serena 4-6 1-6. Hoping for a better result this time.

Great for me too, because I'll be home from work by that time!
But I'm not sure it will be broadcasted though. The NOS only broadcasts till 17:50 and I doubt that Eurosport will broadcast it; they probably prefer Court Chatrier.
