Jelena Jankovic stepped onto Court Philippe Chatrier with a very classy dress, and ready to play...
There were a few slips but she never stayed down, eventually running away with it against Kurumi Nara.
Camila Giorgi is always one of the classiest players on the tour, soft-spoken but all-powerful.
And she had her moments in the opening set, but eventually Svetlana Kuznetsova was just too much.
The No.27-seeded Russian, who won this title five years ago, moved through with a 7-6(5), 6-3 victory.
Petra Kvitova, the No.5 seed, overpowered New Zealander Marina Erakovic in straights, 6-4, 6-4.
Sara Errani has an affinity for these courts - finals and semifinals the last two years...
The No.10-seeded Italian beat Dinah Pfizenmaier and has now won 13 of her last 15 matches here.
The crowds were invested in this one - their own Kristina Mladenovic against American Alison Riske.
Mladenovic followed up her first round upset over No.2 seed Li Na with a 7-6(5), 3-6, 6-3 triumph.
