Just how short is the tennis off-season? So short that the 2013 season starts in 2012. As expected, Petra Kvitova and Serena Williams started their years with routine straight set victories. The surprise of the day was Jarmila Gajdosova upsetting Roberta Vinci. Jarmila hadn’t won a match since Roland Garros and hadn’t even played a match since September, when her mother passed away. In front of many familiy members, including her father and brother, she found her way back into winning form. Obviously, this doesn’t wash away her loss, but hopefully she can move forward with positive energy and have a good 2013.
