Federer Gets Another Entry in the Record Books

Roger Federer forced the re-writing of yet another page in the tennis record books when his first round win at the French Open took the Swissí total of match wins in Grand  Slam events to 233 and so equaled the achievement of Jimmy Connors.

 

 

Williams Loses and Becomes a Philosopher

Serena Williams says everyone has their problems and losing in the first round of the French Open just happens to be hers. The 13-time major winner added that she has more than enough worries on her plate but will carry on.

"I know of her story, we all have stories," said the American who had never before lost in the first round of a 46 previous majors. "I almost died (blood clots in 2011) and Venus is struggling herself (auto-immune disease)."

 

Umpire Asderaki Again Plays Big Role in Williams Match

Once again, umpire Chair Umpire Eva Asderaki played a big role in one of Serena Williams matches. Last year at the US Open, the experienced official gave Serena a point penalty in the first game of the second set of her 6-2, 6-4 final round loss to Samantha Stosur at the US Open.

On Tuesday in Paris, Serena's 4-6 7-6(5) 6-3 loss to Frenchwoman Virginie Razzano -- her first Grand Slam defeat in the first round in 47 appearances -- Asderaki was also very active, frequently coming down from the chair to check ball marks and overruling calls, a couple which went against Williams. The French Open, which is played on clay, does not employ the line calling system Hawk-Eye.

 

Nadal Insists He Wonít Play on Madrid Blue Clay Courts

As Rafael Nadal successfully began his campaign for a seventh French Open title, Madrid tournament owner Ion Tiriac was sitting just a few feet away from the champion of Roland Garros as he patrolled the baseline at the Presidential Tribune end of Court Philippe Chatrier. But a few weeks on, the rift between the two men over Madridís blue clay court remains immense and apparently insurmountable.

 

McEnroe on Isner

US Player Development chief Patrick McEnroe is pretty confident that John Isner can do damage at Roland Garros.

But McEnroe cautioned that Isner does not always get up for non-marquee matches.
