Tennis-France's Cornet defeats Errani to make French Open second round

PARIS, May 27 (Reuters) - France’s Alize Cornet recovered from a set down to defeat Italian Sara Errani 2-6 6-2 6-3 in a show of powerful baseline hitting on Sunday to progress to the second round of the French Open.

Cornet struggled to find her forehand range in the first set, at one point venting her frustration at a ball boy and drawing boos from the crowd, before she began to dictate the match from the back of the court with her powerful backhand.
