Andrea Petkovic overcomes Bojana Jovanovski in round one of Roland Garros

The encounter between Andrea Petkovic and Bojana Jovanovski was one of the juiciest openers. Petkovic's experience prevailed and she won in straight sets 6-4 7-6(3).

The 50th-ranked Jovanovski had opportunities to win the second set, which would take the continuation of the match to tomorrow, because of darkness, but it was never to happen as Petkovic fought off all set points and capitalized on Jovanovski's inability to capitalize on her chances. Nevertheless, Jovanovski once again showed her potential and passed one more inevitable lesson from the tennis experience.

They were practically equal in the department of winners, Jovanovski hit 31 and Petkovic 30, but Petkovic made 23 unforced errors compared to Jovanovski's 41.

    So glad Petko pulled through! Bojo can be a tough first round oponent. She has a very bright furutre if she can keep it together.

  2. Emily

    This was the most worrying first round match up! We all know how talented and capable Bojana is. Bojana should be able to end this year in the top 30 (I hope) and soon enough she will be in the top 10 and most likly Serbia's top player! I just hope the pressure doesn't affect her!

  3. Mirjana

    Bojana needs some diversity in her game if she wants bigger results. Unless she wants to be the "pitty she lost, she played great" girl. She has great, strong shots, but not only that will win her matches.
