Samantha Stosur, Jelena Jankovic Roll In First Round Of Roland Garros 2011

Samantha Stosur

2010 Roland Garros runner-up Samantha Stosur of Australia started her 2011 campaign in impressive fashion, defeating Iveta Benesova of the Czech Republic 6-2 6-3. Looking to win her first Major singles title, Stosur was broken by Benesova in the first game of the match, but it was all Stosur after that. Samantha fired 7 aces and no double faults while winning 74% of first serve points. She had 29 total winners to 19 unforced errors. Stosur made the semifinals in 2009 and the final in 2010. Can she make the final step up and win in 2011?

Jelena Jankovic

Former #1 Jelena Jankovic of Serbia won her opening match against Ukraine’s Alona Bondarenko 6-3 6-1. While Jelena won in impressive fashion, particularly winning 93% of 1st serve points, she will need to improve her winner to unforced error ratio, which at 17 winners to 24 unforced errors will not spell success when she plays better competition. But for now, she has won and moves on.
