Roland Garros men's final : Stan Wawrinka beat Novak Djokovic 4-6, 6-4,6-3,6-4. The French Open finals at Roland Garros between Stanislav Wawrinka and Novak Djokovic was a fantastic match. It had drama, amazing shotmaking, momentum swings with very high quality shots and rallies constantly from both players throughout the match. As a former pro I "live" through these guys all the same emotions they feel, definitely not as strong but nevertheless we can "feel" those emotions to some degree. I come away from this match [...]

#tbt Roland Garros 1986: @johankriek beats Guillermo Vilas to face Ivan Lendl in the semi-final. Beating Vilas was one of the toughest matches Johan has ever played. It was a match that took so much out of Johan that it left him injured for many weeks and forced him to miss Wimbledon that year.

Serena Williams, world number 1 and reigning French Open champion was severely trounced today by a fairly unknown Spaniard Garbine Muguruza. Muguruza played almost the same type of tennis Ana Ivanovic played against Williams at the Australian Open, where Ana trounced Williams as well. These two matches should be on every WTA player's I-Pad to see how it is done. And these two losses in majors should be a lesson for Serena on how to combat such situations that she rarely faced and now will [...]
