BRITISH hope Anne Keothavong failed to make it past the first hurdle at the French Open, losing 6-2, 6-2 yesterday in sweltering Paris to Italy’s Flavia Pennetta. Keothavong’s exit leaves Elena Baltacha and Katie O’Brien flying the nation’s flag in the women’s draw, while in the men’s British No1 Andy Murray begins his quest today with a tricky first-round test against home favourite Richard Gasquet.
