trophy watch: before paris




And two weeks from now? Caroline Wozniacki
 would like to be holding a smaller — but more significantly weighted — trophy on the grounds of Roland Garros. But for now the world no. 1 will have to take solace in this oversized cup she received for winning in Brussels, beating Peng Shuai 2-6 6-3 6-3. It would be an outside shot for Andrea Petkovic to go from Strasbourg winner to the champ in Paris, but she did beat Marion Bartoli (6-4 1-0 Ret.), a former Major finalist herself and was a quarterfinalist at this year’s Aussie. For the boys, Nicolas Almagro downed Victor Hanescu 6-7 (5) 6-3 6-3. The Spaniard also has an outside chance at capturing a win at the year’s second major. | More: Read about all three of their wins

Where are they now? In Paris, duh! Almagro, the 11th seed, gets Lukasz Kubot in the first round tomorrow. Top seed Wozniacki swept through Kimiko Date Krumm in her opening match today, winning 0 and 2. Petkovic gets dangerous Serb Bojana Jovanovski tomorrow in her opener. | Look: RG photo stream
