Federer Loses In First Match In Rome

Any parent would empathize with Roger Federer and the difficulties he found simply going back to work after the birth of his second set of twins. The former world no.1 and quite possibly the greatest player ever to swing a racket just found things a little too arduous as he lost out of his rather rushed competitive return at Rome’s Internazionale BNL d’Italia.


Nadal Is Totally Focused on Rome Now; Paris Comes Later

Rome top seed Rafael Nadal, in the hunt for an eighth title at the tournament, said that he is keeping his focus strictly on the Foro Italico and not allowing the French Open to stray into his thoughts. "We are in Rome, not Paris, and I'm only thinking about this tournament. It's always day-by-day, match-by-match for me. When I get to Paris, then it will be time to think of the French Open."


Halep Injury Puts Her Paris Play In Question

Simona Halep has been the most upwardly mobile woman player of 2014 and her impressive results of the last few months meant she had to be viewed as a potential contender for the French Open title. However an abdominal injury, suffered in Rome’s Internazionale BNL d’Italia have put her chances of even competing at Roland Garros in jeopardy.

Jeremy Chardy pulled off what he described as the "best victory of my career" against new father Federer in the second round, while Gilles Simon could only take "a lot of positives" out of his three-set defeat against a recently wobbly Nadal.
