Roland Garros 2013 The Daily Dirt Day - 2

Well day 1 at Roland Garros was like a teaser of whats to come. We had plenty of drama with two old former stars fighting but eventually exiting.First Venus Williams went down Urszula Radwanska, Venus said she wants her old serve back..Venus is turning 33 soon and she will need more than her old serve back to do well at Wimbledon.Williams is also battling autoimmune disease.As for her creation she wore for the match for me it was another fashion disaster looked like Pajama's and she had came for a sleep over.The other former Number 1 The little Aussie Battler Llyeton Hewitt went down to local Giles Simon.Hewitt lead two sets to love but Simon fought back to level the match and take a 5-0 lead in the deciding set , only for Hewitt to do what he does so well fight and levelled the set at 5-5.Simon won the next two games and Hewitt limped from the court after receiving applause from the French crowd on his effort.I think Lleyton will call it quits at the next Australian Open.Love him or hate him he's been a great competitor no one likes being drawn against. Federer Busted Busta and taught him a lesson when competing against the big boys.I was disappointed after knowing his results this year in the futures... he was really lacking in power and the serve just is not good enough at this level.I have put Busta down a notch from the Young Guns to the Pop Guns until he deserves reinstatement. Day 2 sees a full program so below is the schedule along with my selections.
If you want to see the selections and schedule bigger just click on them.

There are some great matchups today and I have picked out 3 that will be worth following.
Monfils has fallen in rankings but has so much talent and playing in front of his home town crowd could cause an upset over Berdych.Berlocq could have enough clay court experience to knock the American and 20th Seed John Isner over. Its been stated that Wozniacki is after a new coach her father has had enough of the tour which he labels a "circus'Laura Robson is a player of the future and she has the ability to allow Caroline an early start to look for that coach.There are plenty of great matches many on the outside courts and of course a few more Young Guns in Action.

Young Guns- Well of course Laura Robson from GB is certainly a young gun and one of the best.Ricardas Berankis is another Young Gun he is 23 and plays the 30th Seed Frenchman Julian Benneteau.Ernest Gulbis is 25 same age as Nadal so I hardly class him a young gun his form is good but he keeps failing to deliver.Euginie Bouchard is 19 from Canada she also plays tonight,Madison Keys who is 18 from the USA could have a bright future and is in action today. Jerzy Janowcz is 23 and hes got talent and he's got some spark he is also the 22 seed ...remember his Aussie Open Meltdown and a youtube video that went viral! Kei Nishikori from Japan is the 13th seed he is 24 but size is his downfall against the powerful and talented big guys he is Chicken feed.Sloane Stevens who is from the USA and 20th seed whilst another Christina McHale 21 is also from the USA ...who said USA tennis was looking bad! Certainly not in the Ladies.Fablious Fabio Fognini is also fun too watch and is from Italy but for me is out of the young guns eligibility at 26.And what a day for 18 year old Aussie and World Junior Number 1 Nick Kyrgios who received a wild card into the main draw and comes up against seasoned campaigner Radek Stepanek. Nick certainly makes my Young Guns group.

Milos Raonic has split from his coach also and ex player Ivan Ljubicic is in his camp and rumour has it he has been working on Raonic to stick out his tongue whilst hitting his forehand.

Well another rumour that surrounds Rodgers next twitter tweet contest is fans will choose 1. whether he wears a G string for his next match or 2.conventional White Calvein Kleins.

This has been Day 2 of the Daily Dirt!
