Cara Black upset in mixed doubles

The 2nd-seeded team of Cara Black and Leander Paes was upset in the first round of the French Open today by Sybille Bammer and Lukas Kubot, 6-0, 1-6, 10-6.

It seems strange that neither Mirza/Bhupati or Dechy/Ram is a seeded team at the Open. At any rate, Nathalie Dechy and Andy Ram defeated Sania Mirza and Mahesh Bhupati 6-1, 7-5.

In women's doubles, there were a couple of upsets in the third round. 9th-seeded Hsieh Su-Wei and Peng Shuai defeated 7th seeds Daniela Hantuchova and Ai Sugiyama 6-3, 7-5, and number 11 seeds Anna-Lena Groenefeld and Patty Schnyder defeated number 8 seeds Maria Kirilenko and Flavia Pennetta 7-6, 6-4.
