Main draw play began today in Madrid, and we already have a major upset. 5th seed Svetlana Kuznetsova was defeated 6-3, 2-6, 6-0 by Shahar Peer. Things haven't been going well at all for the French Open defending champion.
Things haven't been going well for Sara Errani, either. Andrea Petkovic defeated her today, 6-7, 6-1, 7-5. I'm not sure why Errani is having so much trouble lately.
Vera Zvonareva and Melanie Oudin broke each other ten times in their first round match. Zvonareva prevailed, 6-3, 6-4.
