Player Use Of Cell Phones Is Becoming A Problem On The Pro Tour

It could also be a way coaches communicate with their players during matches.


Benneteau Hoping For Consecutive Wins Over Federer

Julien Benneteau can only dream of a repeat win over Roger Federer when he faces the second seed in the third round at Roland Garros. It was only three months ago indoors in Rotterdam that the Frenchman upset the Swiss, his second win in their six-match series.



Noah Sees Current French Players Not Strong Enough

Yannick Noah, the last home player to win the French Open 30 years ago, has little faith that any current compatriot can duplicate his 1983 record at the French Open. 

Noah was pessimistic on his younger countrymen at this edition, rating their time as "not now - not this generation. It's not that I think they are no good. It's just that the guys ahead of them are stronger."
