Federer Flushes F-Lo, Wozniacki Wins; Nadal vs. Isner Tuesday at Roland Garros

“I feel relieved when I look at the score or the match after playing three tiebreaks in Madrid against him,” Federer said of his fellow 29 year old. “It’s definitely slower than Madrid. So I think Feliciano was maybe not getting the free points he was looking and hoping for. The important thing from my side was to be solid in my own serve, which I was all the way through from start to finish, and I thought I played a good match.”

Stosur Beats Demons; Woz, Schiavone on Day 2 at French Open

“I don’t think I have a big chance for the title here because I have never reached further than the third round in a Grand Slam, so we shouldn’t be talking here about winning a Grand Slam,” she said.

Clijsters Back in French Open Women’s Preview; American Tennis Pile-on

Kim Clijsters is back from injury and seeded No. 2. It will be interesting to see if the Belgian can quickly up her game to the physical and mental rigors of the red clay. Clijsters will start against Belarus’ Anastasiya Yakimova, and is looking at a possible third-rounder against No. 25 seed Maria Kirilenko, and fourth round against No. 7 Maria Sharapova, facing a Russian “Maria” onslaught.

Schiavone Heimlichs Choking Stosur for French Open Title

The tight Stosur could seemingly not let loose on her biggest weapons, the forehand and the high-kicking serve, and at 4-4 in the first set threw in a doubles fault on game point to hand the Italian the first set. In the second set Schiavone tested the Aussie’s nerve by repeatedly charging the net. The payoff — Schiavone becomes the first winner of the French Open from outside the Top 10 since 1933.

Stosur-Schiavone French Final a Happy Affair

Don’t get me wrong I love the ladies, lesbian or straight. On the WTA you can never tell, so I just love them all. Bring back Amelie Mauresmo who was proudly out of the closet, as this final will be played in the closet. Going to be crowded, lots of elbows flying. Will the winner run up in the crowd and plant one on their sweetie? You’ve got to hope so then all of homophobic America can gasp.

Nadal vs. Soderling French Final After Fade by Berdych

“It’s always good to have beaten a player before,” said Soderling, the first to lay down the smack. “I know that I can beat him. I showed it. But every match is a new match, and every match is different.”

Federer Wins, Nadal Lines-up Hewitt at French Open

“I got nothing to lose out there,” Hewitt says of facing Nadal next. “It’s a matter of going out there and playing my game, and hopefully I can hit the ball well…He cleaned me up last few times. He’s obviously very dominant, especially on this surface. I’m gonna have to go out there and execute what I want to do, and do it bloody well.”

Roddick Grinds, Monfils Folds at French Open

“It’s the slowest here,” Roddick said. “It’s the most challenging for me. I feel like every time I play out there it’s raining. Wet day on [court] Lenglen has been my Achilles heel. I’ve lost a lot of matches out there in conditions exactly like that. I was able to get through that one today. That was one that might have gotten away from me awhile ago. But I was just kind of staying the course.”

Federer Wins, Monfils Darkness Controversy at French Open

Serving at 4-4, Fognini refused to begin the game, stopping play for more than five minutes while arguing with the chair umpire and Monfils, but eventually stepped to the service line after receiving a point penalty, starting the game at 0-15. Fognini eventually held a match point with Monfils serving at 4-5, but failed to close it out, and the match was finally halted for the day at 5-5.
