Nara loses to Williams in second round of French Open

She, however, has not advanced to the third round since 2006.

Trailing 3-5 and 15-40 in the ninth game, Williams put on another comeback to turn around at 6-5.

Venus Williams overcame a slow start in her second round match at the French Open as Kurumi Nara made the American work hard for the win. "I think it's not easy for her to watch, because, you know, obviously she knows she can do well here". I wish he was following along. I don't know exactly when. "I can't wait for you to join the players box next year", she captioned a sweet Instagram post on April 24. "I'm going to try and give it my best".

Rafael Nadal was all smiles after defeating Robin Haase 6-1, 6-4, 6-3 on the same court where he won nine French Open titles.

"Amazing", she said. "I surprised myself".

"Everything feels great, I've got to relax and enjoy it and see how we do".

"I am glad it was not taken away from me to be there one more time".

The primary difference between the two players came on unforced errors.

Williams' backhand was particularly impressive, providing 12 of her 30 winners. The Australian's next opponent will thus be 32-year-old No117, Bethanie Mattek-Sands.

Two weeks ago, Bertens beat Bellis in straight sets on clay in Rome. He didn't permit them to affect his ability to smack a tennis ball, either, and managed to edge Borna Coric 6-2, 7-6 (8), 3-6, 7-6 (6) and reach the French Open's third round.

The 23rd-seeded Stosur slashed 33 winners conquering Kirsten Flipkens, 6-2, 7-6 (8). In the victory, Mertens won 61 percent of her first serve points and 62 percent of her second serve points.

Wang forced a tiebreak, but still could not get the upper hand.

Venus Williams may have accidentally let slip the gender of Serena's baby.

Her movement is superb on any surface, and while she doesn't glide around the court as she does on grass, Venus would run gracefully in a sand pit, never mind on clay.

Kvitova returned to tennis in Paris after being attacked in the Czech Republic in December. Serving to stay in the set, Nara was broken to love as Williams looked to be at her best now, sealing the first set after 48 minutes of play.

The 12th-seeded Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga left meekly, eliminated 7-5, 6-4, 6-7 (6), 6-4 by 91st-ranked Renzo Olivo of Argentina after only one game Wednesday in a match suspended a night earlier because of darkness.
