Today's Result: loss to Albert Montanes (29th seed, Spain) in straight sets

Kamke is another qualifier in his first Roland Garros. He managed to win his first round match, too, taking out Stephane Robert of France. Despite the worrisome weather, most of the day's matches were completed, only a few to carry over to tomorrow. I can't watch TV at work, but I can follow the weather for Paris online.

Catching Up with Old Friends

Angelique Kerber
(Curtain Call, Aussie Open Day 5) - Kerber didn't make the French last year and her second round finish this time is a career best at the event. There's no shame in losing to Aravane Rezai, the 15th seed from France. It's an excellent beginning to the brutal summer slog.

All Part of My Fantasy

I lost another semifinalist on the women's side. Lucie Safarova (24th, Czech Republic) went out rather meekly to Polona Hercog (Slovenia) 6-2 6-1. On the men's side, Juan Ignacio Chela (Argentina) is currently in a battle with Andy Murray (4th, UK). He's down a set, on serve in the second with the match to resume tomorrow.
