Black Tennis Pro's French Open Day 2 Serena Williams
American Serena Williams had a slow start getting it together during the morning rounds of day 2 at Roland Garros - it was just one of those days. On the flip side, it really doesn't matter what kind of day she's having, the younger Williams sister will typically find a way to win... and she did.

After waking up and finding some rhythm, Serena pulled off a 7-62, 6-2 win over Switzerland's Stefanie Voegele.

Post match Serena said, “I definitely didn’t feel good about it. At least I won. I think I’m still in the tournament. That’s what matters.”

When you get right down to it, that's all that matters.

Frenchman Gael Monfils had a few bumps in his 6-3, 7-5, 65-77, 6-2 quest for victory over Germany's Dieter Kindlmann, but nothing dramatic. It appears that Kindlmann came with a bit more game than Monfils may have anticipated.

In his post match interview Monfils said, "Well, I'm happy I won ... I'm really happy I won because I was really nervous. My game is not as good as it used to be because, well I didn't know the guy. I could have finished it earlier but, the positive thing about it is I won."
