Minella rivaled Francesca Schiavone, a 37-year-old veteran player who was the champion of the French Open women's singles in 2010, and was beat in just 53 minutes 0-2 (1-6, 1-6). But the game gave her unforgettable memories, and she received 35,000 pounds (52.12 million won) of prize money even as she failed in round 1.
Stanislas Wawrinka, who won the French Open men's singles this year, became an unexpected victim. At round 1 he was beat by Daniil Medvedev 1-3. Medvedev is a rookie this season and had failed in round 1 in the Australia Open and the French Open.
