2021 French Open early round results

The 2021 French Open is off to a rough start.

As we've discussed before, one of the worst things about watching some early matches is when two hotties face off, and it becomes a guarantee that one of them will be eliminated and won't be seen again until perhaps Wimbleton. Well so far Roland Garros has generally avoided this issue: instead, the uglies have been consistently beating the attractive players.

There were exceptions: Sunday's action saw Victoria Azarenka (8/10) defeat Svetlana Kuznetsova (6.5/10), Aliaksandra Sasnovich (8/10) needing a rare-for-the-day three set match to beat hometown's Diane Parry (7/10). Veronika Kudermetova (9/10) defeated Amanda Anisimova (9/10) in one of those "why is this a first round seed" matches, Elena Vesnina (8/10) beat Olga Govortsova (8.5/10), Danielle Collins (9/10) took down Xiyu Wang (4.5/10), Elena Rybakina (7/10) beat Elsa Jacquemot (6/10), Ana Bogdan (8.5/10) beat Elisabetta Cocciaretto (6/10), and Kateryna Kozlova (9/10) was taken out by Ajla Tomljanović (8.5/10). While we might have other reasons to be upset by it, in the looks department Patricia Țig (6/10) losing to Naomi Osaka (6.5/10, formerly7/10) isn't the worst thing in the world. Paula Badosa (8.5/10) beat Lauren Davis (8.5/10)as well.

But the day also saw Canada's Leylah Fernandez (6/10) eliminate hottie Anastasia Potapova (8.5/10), Ana Konjuh (8.5/10) lose to Aryna Sabalenka (6.5/10), Angelique Kerber (8/10) lose to Anhelina Kalinina (7.5/10), Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova  (6/10) defeat the lovely tits of Christina McHale (8/10), and while Nao Hibino (7/10) is probably the best looking asian player in the WTA we didn't want to watch more matches with her instead of Nina Stojanović (8.5/10). In a minor example, Danka Kovinić (7/10) in an impressive overtime beat cutie Clara Burel (7.5/10).

It's also interesting that the French Open is taking place in Paris, where the Wuhan Flu has inspired a longer curfew than the Nazis imposed. As a result, announcements during the afternoon matches alluded to the gates closing before matches even finished: the WTA was mostly unaffected but the later ATP events saw empty stands.
