Germans up: Exactly what is happening with former No. 1 Caro Wozniacki, who was destroyed 6-1 6-2 by a zoning Angelique Kerber and looked like she had no idea what to on the court. Once again, the claims from her camp that she is improving ring hollow. But the lefty Kerber, who will face another lefthander, Petra Kvitova, can really play and seems to have weapons from everywhere.
Germans down: After just talking about how her knee and back have healed, Germany’s Andrea Petkovic suffers what appeared to be a severe ankle injury and is forced to retire against Victoria Azarenka while trailing 6-2 4-4. Given that she just came back last Sunday, if the injury keeps her out for a few weeks, she can forget about her Roland Garros chances. Bad luck for a woman who appears to keep in great shape.
