Wozniacki Wants Hawk-Eye at Paris
world no.1 Caroline Wozniacki added her indignant voice to the growing
number of demands for ‘Hawk Eye’ line calling technology to be employed
on the clay courts of the French Open.
Since computerized systems have become a fixture at the
other three Grand Slam events, the French Tennis Federation have stuck
with tradition and insisted umpires can cite marks on the clay when
arbitration is required over a contentious line-call.
Federer Begins Second Week in Paris Very Calm
business as usual for Roger Federer as the Swiss begins the second week
of the French Open with the 2009 champion feeling fit for another trophy
run at Roland Garros.
"I'm very happy that I went through the first four
rounds, because I may have thought that I was playing too different a
game compared with my opponents, starting from the second round," said
Federer. "Physically I feel well. I'm not tired. I don't have any
source of pain anywhere, so that's very positive."
Azarenka May End Arrangement With Coach Mauresmo
Azarenka’s early French Open exit may have brought an early end to her

haven't even talked to them. We'll see.”

LA-based German, a qualifier in Paris who stood second in the world a
decade ago, wasn't able to get past Richard Gasquet, losing in four
Sharapova Still Avoiding Twitter
Sharapova may be a worldwide sport, fashion and marketing icon - but
that doesn't mean the WTA number two is prepared to reveal every detail
of her life on Twitter.
"I think it's too much for me. I mean, I'm bored with
myself on a daily basis," said the three-time Grand Slam winner. "I
think if I'm bored, like eating a bowl of pasta, I don't need to let the
world know that I'm at this restaurant eating a bowl of pasta."
