First, Michelle Larcher de Brito has advanced to the second round by defeating Gisela Dulko, 7-5, 7-6. I'm really sorry to see Dulko, a player I enjoy, go out so soon, but it is nice for Larcher de Brito to move on.
Next, qualifier Aleksandra Wozniack defeated number 8 seed Francesca Schiavone, 2-6, 6-3, 6-2. But there's more: Dominika Cibulkova defeated number 7 seed Nadia Petrova, 6-4, 3-6, 6-3.
Sam Stosur, who failed to get through qualifying, became a lucky loser when Lindsay Davenport pulled out, and she won her first round against Anastasia Rodionova.
