Errani rockets past Radwanska into the last four | Roland Garros 2013 RG13 | Scoop.it

Watching Agnieszka Radwanska and Sara Errani fighting out their nip-and-tuck quarter-final, the main question was how on earth the Italian had contrived to lose six of their seven previous meetings.

stephane gault's insight:

Errani will have a hard time vs Williams.

Sharapova and Jankovic to relive junior clay clashes in quarters

Sharapova and Jankovic to relive junior clay clashes in quarters | Roland Garros 2013 RG13 | Scoop.it

Perhaps one of the reasons why Maria Sharapova and Jelena Jankovic both reached the No.1 ranking is because when they were kids, they battled each other so hard at the Nick Bollettieri Academy in Florida that they drove each other to new competitive heights.

stephane gault's insight:

A very intensive match to come !

Leonardo di Caprio chose Jo-Wilfried Tsonga’s fourth-round match against Viktor Troickifor his first courtside experience of Roland Garros 2013, but it is doubtful he found much material for some future big-screen project.

Federer achieves historic win

Federer achieves historic win | Roland Garros 2013 RG13 | Scoop.it

It was a straightforward win for Roger Federer on Wednesday to say the least. 6-2, 6-1, 6-1 over Somdev Devvarman, a player ranked 185 places below him in the world, barely merits much more than a mention.

Monfils thrills again to foil Gulbis

Monfils thrills again to foil Gulbis | Roland Garros 2013 RG13 | Scoop.it

Does Gael Monfils do any kind of win other than extraordinary? His exhilarating second-round encounter with Ernests Gulbis would surely have belonged to the Latvian if he had won either the second or the third sets; but Monfils somehow snatched the second and insisted upon the third. He needed seven set points to secure the latter, and was sufficiently chilled to spend the changeover filming the crowd on his mobile phone. Eventually the son of Paris emerged a thrilled and thrilling winner 6-7(5), 6-4, 7-6(4), 6-2 in three hours and 15 minutes, having demonstrated once and for all how to put the wild into wildcard.

stephane gault's insight:

Very good spirit shown by "la monf" today !

Men's match of the day: Gulbis next for storming Gael | Roland Garros 2013 RG13 | Scoop.it

Three things in life are inevitable: death and taxes and Gael Monfils arriving at Roland Garros carrying an injury which he heroically defies to pull off a (possibly short) series of fabulously unlikely wins, to the bellowing approval of the showcourt crowds.

stephane gault's insight:

a tough match for "la monf", will he perform as well as 1rst round, we'll see.

It is one of life’s stranger facts that Roland Garros has never been the happiest of hunting grounds for Richard Gasquet, but perhaps (20)13 will be his lucky number. 11 years after his much-heralded debut, he opened this campaign with an uncomplicated 6-1, 6-4, 6-3 win over the world No.101 Sergiy Stakhovsky

Milos Raonic is finally finding his feet on red clay and if the young Canadian can continue to be as resourceful as he was in dispatching the hard-charging Michael Llodra of France 7-5, 3-6, 7-6(3), 6-2 in the second round, he will be tough to stop in the rest of the tournament.

The only complication for Maria Sharapova’s first round match against Hsieh Su-Wei was its late rescheduling.
