So Far, So Good In Paris

The 2010 edition of the French Open so far has gotten off to a great start for my fave tennis playing sisters.

Serena had to work a little in her 7-6, 6-2 opening round match against Stefanie Voegele of Switzerland. She won the first set in a 7-2 tiebreaker before getting it in gear and rolling to a straight set victory.

Big Sis had an easier time and did so in a self-designed black corset inspired tennis outfit that's getting more worldwide attention and discussion around the globe than the 6-3, 6-3 straight set beatdown she dished out to Patty Schnyder of Switzerland.

The best thing about that match was that Venus' knees weren't wrapped in miles of tape and she showed no signs off the leg problems that plagued her last season.

She was in a more conventionally dressed outfit in her and Little Sis' opening round doubles match with Kirsten Flipkens of Belgium and Tamarine Tanasugarn of Thailand.

They rolled Flipkens and Tanasugarn in straight sets 6-0, 6-1 to secure their place in the doubles tournament second round.

Number one seeded Serena takes on Julia Georges of Germany in the second round, while Number two seeded Venus takes on Spain's Arantxa Perra Santonia.

Their next doubles match has the number one doubles seeds taking on the Czech Republic's Daniela Hantchuova and Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark.
