The first round of The Championships is almost done, and for some it has been a new beginning...
Sloane Stephens saw her second week streak end at the hands of resurgent former No.10 Maria Kirilenko.
Garbiñe Muguruza was also bounced, and by a fellow WTA Rising Star too - CoCo Vandeweghe.
Li Na made safe passage through her opener though, exorcising the demons Roland Garros brought.
And Victoria Azarenka the same - she couldn't even play Roland Garros this year due to a foot injury.
Maria Sharapova slipped in the second round here last year - she made a triumphant return Tuesday.
And Simona Halep, here for the first time as one of the favorites, had no trouble in her opener.
Francesca Schiavone lost a tight tussle against fellow former French Open winner Ana Ivanovic.
Kaia Kanepi pulled off the biggest upset of the first round, taking out No.7 seed Jelena Jankovic.
And the WTA Rising Stars rose up - including Caroline Garcia, who stunned No.14 seed Sara Errani.
