Roland Garros: Day 2

Well my day two anyway. Went back to RG last Thursday when the skies were cloudy and the air cool and it was perfect. Had tickets to court 1 but only headed over there at the end of the day when Elena Dementieva was taking on comeback kid Jelena Dokic. Got there to see Dokic win the first set. Was excited to see how Dementieva would respond but unfortunately Dokic had what appeared to be back spasms early in the second set; she left the court for about 10 minutes, played out a game and a half and then retired--visibly upset at having to do so. Dementieva was quite nice and went over to Dokic's chair to check on her.

Saw a lot of doubles on the outer courts, which I always enjoy since I never get to see it on television.

Here are some pics:

Azarenka and her partner beat the French team of Coin and Bremond.
