Radwanska is pictured below just as she begins moving her arms in the very early preparation stage of her service action. Pennetta is pictured after making contact with the ball for this double-handed backhand. Pennetta is ranked higher now than what her country woman Francesca Schiavone was when she won the 2010 Roland Garros singles title last year.
Pictured below are Peng Shuai and Samantha Stosur with their flowers before battling it out for 3-sets today.

The right-hander is amongst a small group of players who could step up another level in 2012 and become the World No.1 for the first time.
