Day One Musings on Interesting Results (Women)

Let’s take a look at the women for day one.  There was only one solid talking point… Petra.

Petra Kvitova (10)  6 4 7

Petra Kvitova is a two time grand slam (Wimbledon) champion.  As such you’d expect her opponents to feel a certain amount of champion’s aura around her when they step on the same court.  Either they don’t feel it, or she doesn’t use it to her advantage often enough, because Kvitova is usually a victim of the upset fever when it breaks.

Over the last two days at Roland Garros, the upset fever has threatened to break a couple of times but on this occasion, Petra held on.  She’s through to the second round and with Petra, she can catch fire as easily as she can freeze over.  This near crash might liberate her, but with Petra these days, I’m not so sure it will.
