Medina Garrigues upset by Kanepi

The hard-fighting Anabel Medina Garrigues ground it out for three hours today in the third round of the French Open, but--despite displaying moments of brilliance--she finally fell to the dangerous Kaia Kanepi, whose huge forehand found the line again and again at key moments in the match. The match was exciting to watch, as both women hit impressive groundstrokes, and Medina Garrigues showed her prowess at the net. Kanepi ended the match with twice as many unforced errors (61) as her 29th-seeded opponent, but edged her a bit in first serve wins and winners hit.

The 2001 Junior French Open winner will have to cut down on the unforced errors if she expects to continue advancing.
