French Open Live Scores
June 5, 2011 by staff
French Open Live Scores, Some scattered thoughts on the French Open 2011, issued in the U.S.: Rafael Nadal won his sixth French Open title, tying the record of Bjorn Borg, while improving to a lifetime of another 45-1 at Roland Garros. Long lives the king. Li Na could do for tennis what Yao Ming has done for basketball? Every sports organization – from baseball to the UFC – wants a beachhead in China. Tennis already has a Grand Slam champion. That’s a hell of a good start. One of you joked that she should change his name to Li Williams. For all examples of players who do not meet the time, the peaks of Li in the majors.Roger Federer will not win a match to five sets on clay to Nadal at this stage of his career, but his resurgence in the past fortnight is a good omen for the next 10 weeks.
Francesca Schiavone was a party to replicate last year’s feat. But who can remember a player that competes with both unfiltered joy. Just a joy to be around. And, as we are concerned, the most prominent figures in the distribution of the WTA, the better.
The United States at Roland Garros struggles are well documented. Eighteen Americans entered this year’s Main Draw – nine men and nine women – and became zero beyond the third round. But there is hope for the future in 17 years of age, Bjorn Fratangelo, born and raised in Plum, Pennsylvania, who won the boys singles title.
Because of all the stories swirling others – and women just 12 hours away late – Novak Djokovic was deprived of the farewell he deserved. For six months, won with grace. And when the streak was finally broken, lost with grace too. A pity that only covers the 43 most important games. (Note to self: next time I go six months without losing streak to start late spring) But who can doubt that there is a lot more slam left for him to win?
Heading into the tournament, the conventional wisdom was that women’s football is in disarray and up to a dozen players can win. To some extent this was born, not least, when the three seeds lost in Week 1. But we stayed with a Chinese champions beat the defending champion, Maria Sharapova and a unique player in the host nation of the other two semifinalists. That’s not so bad.
We eagerly await the report of Williams seeding for Wimbledon. I think the best players should WANT seeded as high as possible. Otherwise, it will lurk in the early rounds.
Daniel Nestor strengthens the case for the Hall of Fame (and even doubles player GOAT?) By teaming up with Max Mirnyi to win the title.
Andrea Hlavackova and fellow Czech Lucie Hradecka took the title of women.
to be described as a “cow on ice”, was Russia’s Maria Sharapova is proud to reach the semifinals of Wimbledon. But one suspects that when she reflects on her career, she will be remembered as a hit that got away. (Same, to a lesser extent, by Svetlana Kuznetsova.)
Do not replicate the feat very counterpart Li Na, but Australia Open finalist Andy Murray-lose, is back in business. Well, he did not have to beat a murderer’s row to reach the semifinals. But his game – absent without leave for months – has been relocated.
Caroline Woznaicki criticism and classification is not only justified, but in a strange way, a triumph for women’s tennis. Listen. When the top-ranked player – who has never won a Slam – not only lost an important, but also falls in week 1 of the abysmal score of 6-1, 6-3, merits discussion. Sorry, they are the rules of the sport. When the San Antonio Spurs amassing the best record in the NBA and then crash in the first round of the playoffs, is duly noted. When an undefeated fighter is eliminated, the validity of registration is in question. When a golf player Tiger Woods, who leads the PGA money list, which raises the eyebrows. If we reject the asterisk Wozniacki along the lines of, “Hey, is doing better than she,” would reduce the WTA. Soft bigotry of expectations and the like.
For all the ink and pixels and time of issue of the underachievement WTA – Ana Ivanovic Sam Stosur – as some support to the winners. Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova has continued to climb and reached the quarterfinals. Andrea Petkovic is not ready for big wins, but she is a good top ten in good faith. Petra Kvitova looks like the real deal. Little by little we are throwing pretenders and contenders.
How’s this for a little cultural exchange? French aid with a bit of youth development. We help them with fan behavior. There were parties on Philippe Chartrier to the stands seemed to be about 10 percent of capacity. We’re talking about rows and rows of empty Sears. Surely there is a way for the patricians sponsor stores know how unseemly it is to choose tickets and then not use them. We look forward to improvements to the venue. But is it for laughs if the stands are empty. Simply shameful.
The treatment of tennis unfortunate receives from the good folks at Comcast / NBC / Kabletown (joke that never gets old) has been well documented. Broadcast live events delayed are the modern equivalent of the Flat Earth Society. Three quick points: 1) From a business perspective, I do not understand. If rates of tennis so bad, why even bid on it? What is shortsighted French Federation to allow transmission of “partner” to reduce property by descent to the atmosphere some of the most compelling games live? 2) In preparation for Wimbledon, did not come with a coherent plan of attack a little more advanced? It was, frankly, embarrassing, that with all platforms and all permutations of the provision, the networks were fighting and sending out press releases on the eve of the games. 3) I urge you not to be confused with NBC beancounters with NBC equipment and talent on the site. One of the great shames here: NBC does an excellent job in the events. The Ted Robinson / John McEnroe / trio Maria Carrillo is as good as it gets. The production and direction is first rate. Graphics. Research. Whatever. It’s the people in the suites on 30 Rock that are causing ill will.
Talking to suppress information that would be free …. Many of you complained about the seizure of transcription. Let’s see how it is played at Wimbledon. Pending the outcome, I direct you to the player interviews on the site French Open. If postmatch press conferences contained a fraction of this “golden quote” we’d all be in good shape. A sampling:
Q: [Who I'd like to share] a good bottle of wine?
Gael Monfils: do not drink, which puts a damper on things. But if I were to share a magnum of Fanta, I think that if Jo (Tsonga).
Q: In order to see your favorite band?
Gael Monfils: Hmmm … I really do not mind going to see some of rap with Svetlana (Kutznetsova). She is a great girl, she is fantastic. I love her.
P. Why girls beat?
Gael Monfils, Jo, again. He is not the biggest flirt, but we have an excellent track record.
Bless Djokovic and his streak. But this is as good a time as any to highlight Esther Vergeer, the title pushed its unbeaten streak to 17 straight Slams and more than 400 consecutive games.
Scott Lipsky of the United States and Target, Buyer Casey Dellacqua of Australia won his first Grand Slam on Thursday when they defeated champions Nenad Zimonjic of Serbia and Slovenia’s Katarina Srebotnik 7-6 (6), 4-6, 10-7 in the mixed doubles final.
The best tennis player in the NBA? … Apparently it’s Dirk Nowitzki.
Caught in U.S. last week was a pleasure reading the daily dispatches of John Branch and Chris Clarey in the New York Times.
Gael Monfils tennis is like Dwight Howard. He probably is not champion material. But it’s fun to have in the cast. And the sport is legitimated by their athletic ability.
One of you brilliant Wozniacki started calling and Monfils’ dry Extra Dry “award winners. Get a little closer! “I do not care how fast you are, or how well you defend, you can not win a major singles title there. What do you expect to defeat your opponent if you’re not close enough to see them?” I want to know the views his players to get closer to the fans, but do not think that’s what I had in mind. ”
another point in their stock short (David Einhorn style!) Jo-Wilfried Tsonga Anyone? A fun player to watch when it is. But the combination – not unrelated – a body weak and shaky confidence is conspiring against him.
Support to talk tennis for this update of Roger Federer and suggested a change of racket.
Remember that 65 unforced errors against Arantxa Rus Clijsters? It would have been 66 if I had not thrown out the lucky winner just in recent memory. Check this out.
