FRENCH OPEN 2007: Venus and Serena Win First Round Matches

Venus Williams beat French teenager Alize Cornet 6-4, 6-3 seconds before the rain came down forcing the third rain delay of Day 2 at Roland Garros.

Serena Williams beat Bulgarian Tsvetana Pironkova (who took out Venus last year 9-7 in the third set during the first round of the 2006 Australian Open) 5-7, 6-1, 6-1 on Day 1. Serena was down 5-6 (after coming back from 2-5 to level the match 5-5) with Pironkova ready to serve for the first set when a 5-hour rain delay occurred. After that gap, although Serena lost the first set, she won 12 of the last 13 games to win the match.
