Paris - Maria Sharapova swaps sweltering Melbourne for wet and chilly Paris
on Monday hoping her love affair with the French capital will help bury her
Australian Open nightmare.
Sharapova was also runner-up at Roland Garros last year although her only
previous visit to the January indoor hardcourt tournament in Paris's plush 16th
arrondissement ended in a quarter-final run.
Italy's Sara Errani, the world number seven, takes the third seeding while
Angelique Kerber of Germany, the world number nine, is seeded fourth.
