The moment when there is a big bang in Paris.

It's not clear exactly what happened, but it may have been an airplane that passed through the sound barrier.

A strange moment at the start of the game.

At a stand of 15-30 there is a huge bang near the track of Bertens.

The Dutch waits to serve and laughs at it.

Good news!

It is dry in Paris and the sail is being pulled from runway 14.

It seems that Kiki Bertens will soon start her second round match against Sara Errani.

Bertens opponent of today, Sara Errani, was in the final of Roland Garros in 2012.

The Italian then had to leave the overall victory to Maria Sharapova and has since failed to reach the final of a Grand Slam tournament again.

Errani has now dropped to the 150th place on the WTA ranking.
