Nadal immortalised following ninth Roland Garros victory

Nadal immortalised following ninth Roland Garros victory | Roland Garros | Scoop.it
Rafael Nadal's ninth title in the past 10 years at Roland Garros is a surreal statistic that sees the Spaniard continuing to cement himself as one of the greatest players ever to have lived.
Nicolás Roggero's insight:

The Nadal is historic. Nobody would exceed. He was a champion in Roland Garros and he has the ninth title in the past 10 years. Is wonderful. Djokovic could never because the spanish is the best in this court. Congratulations, Rafa.

Raonic 1st Canadian in Grand Slam quarters

Raonic 1st Canadian in Grand Slam quarters | Roland Garros | Scoop.it
Milos Raonic became the first Canadian man in the Open era to reach the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam tournament by defeating Marcel Granollers of Spain 6-3, 6-3, 6-3 in the fourth round of the French Open on Sunday.
Nicolás Roggero's insight:

Milos Raonic will go down in history because he will be the first Canadian man in the quarterfinals of a Gran Slam tournament. He has a great future and he is the graet bet of canadian tennis. In Roland Garros he was good perfomance and by defeating Marcel Granollers of Spain for 3-0 set.

Ivanovic humbles nervous Garcia

Ivanovic humbles nervous Garcia | Roland Garros | Scoop.it
Pressure can be a blessing in disguise for some competing on their home stage, but French hope Caroline Garcia found it all a bit much.
Nicolás Roggero's insight:

Ivanovic beat the french Garcia. The nerves were a weak point for the local. Their 19 years also led to play badly at Roland Garros, 2nd Grand Slam in 2014. The women of France was far from being beat Sharapova in 2011.

Nadal wins Madrid title as Nishikori retires

Rafael Nadal won his fourth Madrid Open title on Sunday after Kei Nishikori was forced to withdraw with an injury when trailing 2-6, 6-4, 3-0 in the final.
Nicolás Roggero's insight:

Nadal continues to make history. Today he won the fourth title of the open of Madrid by the 2-6, 6-4 and 3-0 on Kei Nishikori, who abandoned by an injury. In this way, the Spanish comes from great way to Roland Garros, the second grand slam in 2014. Without doubt, is the big favorite along with Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray.

Great! Now, don't forget to include the subject (he, she, etc) in the sentence. For example "Today HE won".
Stephanie Jaschek's comment, May 31, 2014 11:35 AM
Correct "by *the* 2-6, 6-4".. *the* is not necessary. "Abandoned *by* an injury" --> "Because of an injury"

Nadal crushes Murray to lay down final marker

Nadal crushes Murray to lay down final marker | Roland Garros | Scoop.it
The eight-time champion's defeat of Andy Murray was not only near-humiliation for the Wimbledon champion, but delivered an ominous warning that rumours of Nadal's demise have been greatly exaggerated.
Nicolás Roggero's insight:

Rafael Nadal defeated Andy Murray for 6-3, 6-2, 6-1. The Spanish was resolved easily and very category. He is the best in brick dust. He seems undefeatable. Now, he will play the final vs. Novak Djokovic. If he wins, you'll get the ninth title in ten years!

Polvo de ladrillo is not "brick dust", we learned this in class. check you material please.

Murray comes through opening test

Murray comes through opening test | Roland Garros | Scoop.it
Andy Murray’s campaign at Roland Garros 2014 got off to a great start on Tuesday thanks to a four-set defeat of Kazakh Andrey Golubev.
Nicolás Roggero's insight:

While Andy Murray started with a victory by 6-1, 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 on Andrey Golubev of Kazakhstan. He won but not played well.  However, their mentallity is greater than the rest of players. The scotish is the number one in the ATP ranking and he have accesible sorting.

Ahí lo rearmé, como el de Ivanovic. Uso el traductor para palabras determinadas.

He won but DID not play well (for negative form of verbs in the past use "didn't + verb in infinitive form)

Djokovic kicks off versus Sousa

Djokovic kicks off versus Sousa | Roland Garros | Scoop.it
No.2 seed Novak Djokovic enters the 2014 French Open on something akin to a roll.
Nicolás Roggero's insight:

Novak Djokovic will have a accessible debut at Roland Garros vs. the portuguese De Sousa. In fact, he barely won an ATP tournament. Clearly, in his country the tennis is not strong, on the contrary. But, the way of the Serbian to the final against Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray is complicated. In the middle will face major players, its main rival could be Roger Federer. Although there are others like Raonic, Tsonga, etc. Djokovic will try to win the second grand slam of the year to remain one of the best in the ATP ranking.

Monaco wins in Duesseldorf; Nieminen tumbles

Monaco wins in Duesseldorf; Nieminen tumbles | Roland Garros | Scoop.it
Defending champion Juan Monaco eased past Benjamin Becker 6-2, 6-1 to reach the second round of the ATP Duesseldorf Open on Tuesday.
Nicolás Roggero's insight:

In the prior to Roland Garros, Juan Monaco overtook Benjamin Becker by 6-2 and 6-1. The defending champion won after a wrist injury that took him from 10 because the 54. The idea of the tennis player is to reach well to the second Grand Slam in 2014. Although the runner-up (Jarkko Nieminen) lost in the debut with Denis Istomin and despite that began winning by 6-7 and said goodbye.

Good! Help me understand this so that we can find a way to express it better. What do you mean by "a wrist injury that took him from 10 because the 54"?
Nicolás Roggero's comment, June 1, 2014 3:24 PM
Le pongo en castellano por las dudas. Cuando tuvo la lesión él estaba 10 del ranking y luego de ella 54.
Stephanie Jaschek's comment, June 26, 2014 1:53 PM
that took him from the 10th to the 54th postion in the ranking.
