Lleyton Hewitt finally beat Ivo Karlovic

Lleyton Hewitt - French OpenJohansson and Diatchenko fought the battle of the awkward service actions with the qualifier ultimately prevailing. Johansson was in tears as she served for the match in the third, pleading with her coach as she double-faulted away her chances.

Lleyton Hewitt loves five setters so much he took his time yesterday refusing to begin until Karlovic had taken the first two tiebreaks, then the gutsy little Aussie swung into the match and wore the brutal serve down. Many people would think this hurts Hewitt’s chances of winning the tournament but he’s scheduled to face Nadal in the third so realistically he’s only contemplating a three match tournament. He should be fine.

Amelie bowed out in the manner she’s become accustomed too and Vera finally admitted what we knew all along and took her name off the list. O’Brien is the lucky loser.

Ana Ivanovic will be watching out for Sara Errani’s name on future draws as she was made to feel uncomfortable before finally fist-pumping her way home. Qualifiers Rus and Shvedova both won and will play each other next.

Rafa’s blogging againQ. Did you lose some weight this year? A. No, I didn't... Maybe the sleeveless shirt?

Matches to watch:
Safina vs Keothavong – has someone told Zeljko there’s no on court coaching?
Yakimova vs Sharapova – return of the cow on ice
Pennetta vs Glatch – Fed Cup preview
Kleybanova vs Hercog – can qualifier Hercog upset a seed?
Rogowska vs Kirilenko – Aussie wild card gets another chance
Roddick vs Jouan – French wild card should be easy for Roddick?
Bolelli vs Berdych – possible upset?
Phau vs Chardy – Germany vs France
Tipsarevic vs Montanes – another five setter?
