Hi everybody, there's an all Italian 1st round clash in the Open Gaz de France, Paris this week.
I don't think Rita has ever beaten Silvia, maybe this will be the day ;)
Good luck to both players, I hope the best one on the day wins.

Indeed she hadn't until today. :bounce:

Rita GRANDE (ITA) v Silvia FARINA ELIA (ITA)

1999 Madrid Clay (O) 16 Silvia FARINA ELIA 2-6 4-6
2002 Tokyo Carpet (I) 16 Silvia FARINA ELIA 5-7 4-6

Silvia FARINA ELIA (ITA) leads 2 : 0

But Rita won. :p It's Dementieva in the second round.

Yeah what a great win for Rita, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for another good performance tomorrow against Elena.

Every point Rita picks up between now and the Italian Open in May is a bonus as she has very little to defend from last year. :bounce:
