Wawrinka Stretched, Murray Breaking? Djokovic, Nadal Tues At Roland Garros

A shocker that has not yet come to conclusion is 37-year-old qualifier Radek “The Worm” Stepanek leading No. 2 seed Andy Murray 6-3, 6-3, 0-6, 2-4, when the match was called due to darkness. The delay will give hope to Stepanek, who had run out of gas on Monday after his quick start.

Muguruza, Seeds Stretched on Cold, Windy Day at French Open; Serena, Venus Tuesday

“It was cold and windy,” said Radwanska, who will next meet France’s Caroline Garcia. “That’s why it was a little bit slow and the ball is not going anywhere. I think we [are] all kind of used to that after couple of days here. The conditions are same for both of us.”

Petra Kvitova Avoids French Open Upset; Monday With Halep, Radwanska And Muguruza

“I think that in the second set when I was serving to make it 4-1, I missed four easy backhands and I felt like that was kind of the turning point and I was kind of down mentally after this game,” Kvitova said. “I think she just came back and tried to play more aggressive. I was I think running too far behind the baseline. I was just trying to put the ball in, but it’s not really my game. It was a very difficult match today. But in the end, I think that the end of the match was kind of sorry from my side. It was a big fight again. I’m happy that I won it.”
