Masha will play on Lenglen Tuesday sometime after 17.00hrs CET (16:00 BEST) (15:00 GMT) [11:00 EDT] Her first round opponent will be Ksenia Pervak--AO girls champion 2009. This will be the first really good opportunity to see Pervak play
I think Pervak has the opportunity to play against Sharapova. But Maria Sharapova will give her any chance to win this match.
Sure, but if a girl is 18 debuting at her first slam main draw, and is able to stay busy with Maria Sharapova (even give some trouble in the first set) on Global Television for an hour & a half, I'd say the matches spent in the qualies are a pretty good weekend's work.
Remember the name: Ksenia Pervak [H] (Her dad has some history, but I don't recall it at the moment.)

"I missed out on the whole month because of the injury," said Kleybanova. "And that is why I had little playing practice before coming to Paris."
"I participated only in two tournaments: in Rome I stumbled out in the first round and in Madrid was kicked out in the second. And I was going to Roland Garros with a kind of dread."
"In this situation it was important to me to play well in the first round to try out my game. And this helped a lot in the match against Ivanovic."
"At first I was making many blunders but then I regained self-confidence and knew I was to stand pat and play aggressively, giving Ana no chance to attack."
"At the moment I am ready to go further [it is first time Kleybanova reached the third round of the French Open]. I am not afraid of anybody. When I enter the court I do not care whose on the opposite side of the net. I know that I must play myself."
"Of course I have great global aims but it will be odd to hear from player ranked 28 that she plans to top the rankings," smiles Alisa.
"I prefer to set more real tasks – to get to the top twenty and settle there. I would not like to dangle somewhere between thirties-forties places my entire career."
she must be wearing a no fear headband.. lol,..
sad for anci..
She wears a black hat with an image of a smile on it and she always smiles when she wins. She is Miss fear nobody.
Russia's Alisa Kleybanova celebrates victory against Serbia's Ana Ivanovic following their women's second round match in the French Open tennis championship at the Roland Garros stadium, on May 27, 2010, in Paris.
Juniors will start on Sunday, including Russia's Daria Gavrilova and Nanuli Pipiya. [:^)] (Riiight. I don't have a clue either. Have to look this one up. Pipiya is 16th seed so she's presumably done something.)
Apparently Nanuli is a young ITF player--18 years old:
LOL! Think this is her on Facebook? [8-|] http://www.facebook.com/.../Nanuli-Pipiya/589870184
So Nanuli won her first round match over a Japanese girl 64 63. On Monday, she'll play doubles with Polina Leykina. Other Russians in doubles action are Gavrilova & Yana Buchina. Gavrilova will also play her second round singles. Starting first round are Buchina & Irina Khromacheva, who I think is second or third seed.
There are more Russian boys this year, as well, but I can't follow everything.
Only Irina Khromacheva came thru to join Nanuli Pipiya in the second round, though Gavrilova & her Canadian partner got through in doubles.
Irina Khromacheva just turned 15 years old. [H] http://www.eng.khromacheva.ru/biography/

ДАВАЙ ЙРЙНА!!! [H]
Girls' Singles - Semifinals Ons Jabeur(TUN) def. Irina Khromacheva(RUS) 6-3 6-2
Irina lost the semifinal to Ons Jabeur of Tunisia, a come-upper determined to remake the face of Maghrebi tennis. About Jabeur: http://www.rolandgarros....1006031275575590485.html
The FINAL, which I guess is on Sunday, will be: Elina Svitolina UKR v Ons Jabeur TUN In keeping with recognizing Ukraine players along with other Rus, now that WTA & commentariat decide to punish their country for rejecting NATO [:P], I'll see what I can find on Elina:
Elina Svitolina (UKR) pix are within the last year.
Remind you of someone? [:)]
Yes she reminds me Safina.
Reminds me of Wozniak. [:S]
I was thinking of the second picture--like Lenochka, with the tongue thing? [:P]
I think maybe there is [st] delay in Paris.
