Nicole Vaidisova: Here today,

I wasn't suprised to see Iveta Benesova take Nicole Vaidisova out in the first round of the French Open--I kind of expected her to. Back in the day, Benesova could play some decent tennis. Her career took a bad tumble, but this season, she has worked her way back to a better place. The 15th-seeded Vaidisova, on the other hand, has become more fragile as the days go by. Always a high-risk player, Vaidisova's game can get messy and her mentality can go awry rather easily.

Vaidisova was the first seed to leave, and--sadly--she was followed by Frenchwoman Virginie Razzano. Razzano had a wonderful season last year, and is having a poor one this year. The 24th seed was defeated by Klara Zakopalova, who--like Benesova--is from the Czech Republic.

Benesova def. Vaidisova, 7-6, 6-1
Zakopalova def. Razzano, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2
