Sharapova Wants a Few Days Off to Celebrate French Win

Maria Sharapova is taking a handful of days off to quietly celebrate her return to the world No. 1 ranking. But the start of the pre-Wimbledon grass season necessarily means that her break will be short and sweet.

"I'm actually debating with my coach whether I should have three or four days off," said the LA-based Russian who won Roland Garros over Italy's Sara Errani 6-3, 6-2. "I'm going for four, he's going for three, which is very typical.


French Open Champion Nestor Doesn’t Expect Any Extra Celebrating

Daniel Nestor may have won his third straight French Open doubles title but that didn't mean that the low-voltage Canadian was in the mood to do any extra celebrating after he and Max Mirnyi beat the Bryan brothers 6-4, 6-4 in the final.

"You don’t want to take your clothes off and start dancing around the court when you win,” said the dead-pan veteran, whose 78 doubles titles are the most in history. “We have a lot of respect for the opposition today.”


Nadal Understands the French Open History of a Long Lunch No Matter What

Rafael Nadal laughed off the rows of empty seats at the start of his French Open semi-final with David Ferrer, with the knowledge that a long lunch takes precedence early afternoon tennis at Roland Garros.

The second seed said that the 1 p.m. start was without doubt the reason for the absentee spectators. "The timing probably wasn't the best. 1:00 is probably not the best timing," he said. "That's the reason, in my opinion.  I've played almost every day but I can't say every day with a full court.


Nadal and Moya Stop at Sponsor’s Booth at Tournament to Say Hi

Last week at the French Open, Rafael Nadal and Carlos Moya stopped by the Babolat booth to say hi to their proud sponsor.

After a friendly meeting, the two major Spanish champions took advantage of this opportunity to sign Babolat's special guest book, which also contains the autographs of the legendary musketeers!
