Zopp almost deserves recognition for the awesome name alone.  He went through qualifying to reach his first ever Roland Garros main draw.  He is Estonia's top ranked player.

Greta Arn - I guess it's Finno-Ugric Appreciation Day.  At 33 years of age, the Hungarian Arn is still fighting the good fight.  She lost twice today.  In singles, she fell to Anastasia Pavlyunchenkova (Russia, 22nd seed) in straight sets.  In doubles, she teamed with Tsvetana Pironkova (Bulgaria).  The pair lost to Anna-Lena Groenfeld (Germany)/Petra Martic (Croatia), also in straight sets.
