Michelle shocks Zheng, makes third round in Paris debut

Michelle Larcher de Brito, who's making her Roland Garros main draw debut (the first Portuguese lady baller to do so), pulled a big upset today defeating 15th seed Jie Zheng 6-4, 6-3 in the second round. It's the 16-year old's best Grand Slam result to date and will next face homegirl Aravane Rezai for a spot in the Round of 16.

I'd say Shrieka 2.0 has a great shot against the Frenchie in the third round, but if the seeding holds true she'd run up against a blazing Dinara Safina who's lost a total of TWO GAMES in two matches.

Good luck with that one.

  1. Good to see Michelle making her move! Not sure I want to see her on my television screen though if the rumours that she screams louder than Shrieka are even halfway true!

  2. I haven't heard her yet, but I like her dress. Very nice win for her.

    Except she majorly fricked up my racquet bracket but did a lot of ladies. i need to just start doing the ladies draw with my eyes closed. lol

  3. Nice intensity when she plays... but the grunt is awful. Totally manufactured as a means to distract the opposition
