Au revoir, Wozniacki and Pavlyuchenkova

Bojana Jovanovski is known to be somewhat of a disaster magnet, but today in Paris, she was the disaster--for Caroline Wozniacki, that is. Jovanovski took the former world number 1 out in straight sets in the second round, hitting 33 winners along the way.

Joining Wozniacki in the exit line was Anastasia "Now You See Her Now You Don't" Pavlyuchenkova, who left the tournament courtesy of Petra Cetkovska, who defeated the Russian 7-5, 2-6, 6-4.

The win of the day was accomplished by Australian teenager Ashleigh Barty, who beat Lucie Hradecka. Frenchwomen Caroline Garcia, Aravane Rezai and Mathilde Johansson lost, but Frenchwoman Virginie Razzano advanced to the third round. Petra Kvitova had to--all together now!--play three sets to beat Rezai.

Serena Williams, Victoria Azarenka, Sara Errani, Angelique Kerber, and Agnieszka Radwanska all easily advanced. Maria Kirilenko and Roberta Vinci also made it to the third round. Jamie Hampton upset Lucie Safarova.

The first round was finally completed, and half of the second round was completed, too, so everything is caught up--for now
