Favorites Safely Pass Second Round Test; Halep Upset by Lucic-Baroni

rolandgarros.com: May 27 2015 Paris, France

Simona Halep has become the biggest casualty of the women's tournament, with the No.3 seed upset by Mirjana Lucic-Baroni on Wednesday in the second round at Roland-Garros. Halep, a finalist last year in Paris and seeded to repeat that match in the last four this time against Maria Sharapova, had no answer to the Croatian's relentless attack, succumbing 7-5, 6-1.

 

This was always going to be a danger match for the third seed; last year at Flushing Meadows, Lucic-Baroni beat Halep en route to the fourth round. And she proved that result was no fluke on Suzanne-Lenglen Court, belting 29 winners to Halep's five to seal victory. It was a philosophical Halep who fronted the press after the seismic result - she admitted there was nothing she could have done to avert defeat. Lucic-Baroni will take on French No.1 Alize Cornet, who beat another Romanian, Alexandra Dulgheru, in straight sets. Eugenie Bouchard was beaten by Kristina Mladenovic in the first round 6-4, 6-4.

French Open First Round

atpworldtour.com: May 24 2015 Paris, France - Roger Federer got his quest underway Sunday for a second Roland Garros title and 18th Grand Slam crown. Second seed Federer improved to 8-0 lifetime against Alejandro Falla with a 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 at the start of his 62nd straight Grand Slam championship.

 

Federer hit 42 winners, including eight aces, converting three of his 15 break point opportunities for victory in one hour and 49 minutes. He is now 62-15 at the clay-court major in Paris, where he lifted the trophy in 2009 (d. Soderling), and he will next challenge Marcel Granollers in the second round.

 

Granollers, a 6-4, 6-3, 7-6(7) winner over qualifier Matthias Bachinger, equaled his best result at the tournament last year in reaching the Round of 16 (l. to Raonic). Federer leads the FedEx ATP Head2Head series 3-0. Federer has a 26-5 match record on the season, which includes three titles at the Brisbane International presented by Suncorp (d. Raonic), the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships (d. Djokovic) and the TEB BNP Paribas Istanbul Open (d. Cuevas).

 

Elsewhere, Roberto Bautista Agut, the No. 19 seed, hit 35 winners in a 6-3, 6-1, 6-3 victory over Florian Mayer and is now one victory away from equalling his best performance. Last year, he lost in the third round to Tomas Berdych. The Spaniard goes on to face Lukas Rosol, who was a 6-2, 7-6(7), 6-3 winner over Elias Ymer
