Roddick makes opponent eat Dirt -----I mean Clay

The video tells the story, one of the craziest moments on the ATP that has ever happened.Well Day 2 provided no real upsets and anyone that thought American James Blake the tournaments 15th seed loss to Leonardo Mayer of Argentina 7-6 7-5 6-2 was an upset I beg to differ.Frenchman Gail Monfils looked impressive with his first round win and he is my Dark Horse in the field.Mardy Fish(22) joined his fellow countryman Blake and Rainer Schuettler(27)where the only other seeds to fall in the men's.Australian junior Bernard Tomic was dealt a Clay Court lesson from Philipp Kohlschreiber of Germany 6-1 6-2 6-2.Tomic was recipient of a Wild Card deal between Australia and the French Tennis Federations. In the Ladies Serena Williams won in three sets but looked far from being the French Open Winner with movement being a big problem throughout the match.The only seed to fall in the ladies today was Shuai Peng of china losing to Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez of Spain in three sets.Australian females Stosur and Dokic both had good first round wins.Tomorrow match ups provide some interesting matches with in the Ladies Nadia Petrova (RUS)[11] v.Maria Sharapova (RUS)going at it.Whilst in the men's Josselin Ouanna (FRA)v.Marat Safin Rus looks a very even match on paper regardless of Safin being the 20th Seed.
