ANDY MURRAY will open up his Wimbledon campaign with a first round tie against David Goffin.
Gonzalo Querol's insight:

Andy Murray has a very difficult task, try to win Wimbledon again, just like last year. The British  is  not the favorite in the All England Club, because of his discrete 2014 season, where he did not win any title. Novak Djokovic is the top candidate to get the third Grand Slam of the season. The Serbian won Wimbledon in 2011, defeating Rafael Nadal  in the final.

PARIS — Maria Sharapova defeated Simona Halep 6-4, 6-7 (5), 6-4 to win her second French Open title and fifth major overall.
Gonzalo Querol's insight:

Maria Sharapova conquered her fifth Grand Slam title and second  Roland Garros, the Russian had lost the final last year against Serena Williams. Sharapova worked more than three hours to defeat Simona Halep in three sets. The next challenge for the blonde will be Wimbledon, tournament that she won in 2004 with only 17 years.

Andy Murray survived his fifth-set shoot-out with Philipp Kohlschreiber to reach the fourth round of the French Open.
Gonzalo Querol's insight:

Andy Murray still can not find his level in Roland Garros. The Scottish is far away from game that made him win two Grand Slams and nine Masters 1000. Murray has been stalled at No. 8 in the ATP ranking for several months now, before the operation in the back the British did not come out of the Top 4.
The irregularity of the man born in Dunblane was demonstrated when he battled for over 3 hours against Philipp Kohlschreiber and beat him 12-10 in the fifth set. Now the reigning Wimbledon's winner will face Fernando Verdasco in the fourth round . Murray leads the matches 9-1.

French Open Draw Deals Djokovic Difficult Hand: Tennis Net
Guardian Liberty Voice
Djokovic French Open The French Open draw is done and it has not been kind to either of the two favorites Novak Djokovic or Rafael Nadal.
Gonzalo Querol's insight:

Of all the favorites to win Roland Garros, Novak Djokovic has been less lucky in the draw. The Serbian could face in the third round to always dangerous Marin Cilic. In the second week of the competition, appear the local opponent Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Already in the quarterfinals, the adversary could be Milos Raonic, and  in  the semifinals Djokovic would meet Roger Federer, the series between them is leading by the Swiss 18-16. In Paris both have played twice with a win for each side. The final that everyone expects is the fight for the No. 1 ranking between Rafael Nadal and the Serbian. If the player born in Belgrade gets the title will make history, not only to return to the top of world tennis, but also because he would became the eighth male player to win all four Grand Slam.
