French Open First Round Results; Wins for Serena and Federer, Venus, Hewitt dumped

PARIS (Sporting Alert) — Top seed Serena Williams made light-weight of her first round competitor on the opening day of the 2013 French Open tennis tournament at Stade Roland Garros on Sunday.

The American World No. 1 easily brushed aside Georgia’s unranked Anna Tatishvili, 6-0, 6-1.

“I’ve played a lot of players who have very good serves, but hers is consistently good, so you always feel pressure when you’re returning,” Tatishvili said.

“I wasn’t really surprised, because I’ve watched her so much, you know? It’s Serena Williams; you watch her always on TV or at tournaments. But it’s the first time I felt what I had seen.”

Venus Williams, however, was not as fortunate as the 32-year-old was dumped from the tournament by Urszula Radwanska, losing 7-6 (7-5), 6-7 (4-7), 6-4 to the Polish player.

Elsewhere on the women’s side No. 5 ranked Sara Errani defeated Arantxa Rus, 6-1, 6-2, Ana Ivanovic (14) recovered from a slow second set performance to beat Petra Martic, 6-1, 3-6, 6-3, while Monica Puig ousted No. 11 Nadia Petrova, 3-6, 7-5, 6-4.

On the men’s side at the French Open opening round, No. 2 Roger Federer and No. 4 David Ferrer were both among the winners at the tournament, while Lleyton Hewitt was beaten 3-6, 1-6, 6-4, 6-1, 7-5 by No. 15 Gilles Simon.
