Federer Loses In First Match In
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.
International Tennis Hall of
Fame Launches Major Expansion Project
International Tennis Hall of Fame & Museum in Newport, Rhode Island has broken
ground on the first project within a multi-faceted $15.7 million capital
campaign and improvement project.
Both Nadal And Federer Have
Surprise Matches In Rome
Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal
were the headline names, but it was a pair of Frenchmen
who held Rome spellbound for a day, with very different
results. 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.
