The Williams sisters have been having a very hard time already in Paris. Venus was very lucky to move past Bethanie Mattek-Sands in the first round 6-1 4-6 6-2. In the sets that Venus won she was in control, but seemed to have a huge lapse in the second set and giving away a vital break to lose the set. While at the same time sister Serena has a tough time only just scraping past Klara Zakopalova from the Czech Republic 6-3 6-7 6-4.
It is really good to see that the Williams sisters are having a tough time in the early rounds of a grand slam, it has been a long time since that has happened. I’m looking forward to seeing how they progress in singles and also in doubles.
