Mladenovic Upsets Li Na in First Round

rolandgarros.com: May 27, 2014 By Matt Trollope Paris, France - Na Li has something of a strange relationship with Roland Garros. She had never really shown any signs of clay-court prowess before remarkably winning the whole thing in 2011 for her first major title, and while her results have improved at Grand Slam events elsewhere since then, her performances in Paris have gone by the wayside. Her title defence in 2012 ended in the fourth round, while in 2013, she bombed out in the second. Not long after that result, she had even contemplated retirement. Although she stuck around to reach the quarter-finals at Wimbledon, semis in Flushing Meadows and hoist the trophy at Melbourne Park, her fickle association with Roland Garros continued on Tuesday when she was upset in the opening round by local Kristina Mladenovic. The performance today was a microcosm of her past couple of years at the clay-court Grand Slam; sometimes brilliant, often patchy, forever brittle. Going down in a raft of errors – particularly off the forehand wing – she fell 7-5, 3-6, 6-1 to the statuesque Frenchwoman. Read more

Murray Passes First Round Test

rolandgarros.com May 27, 2014 By Kate Battersby Paris, France -  Andy Murray’s campaign at Roland Garros 2014 got off to a great start before the Scot so much as hit a single stroke, with the news of Stan Wawrinka’s exit on Monday evening. The Australian Open champion was his potential quarter-final opponent here, and while of course Murray will agree it is never wise to look beyond your next opponent in the draw, he can only have been encouraged. He should take every boost he can get, as his first round match was not a showcase for his most glittering tennis. There were too many hesitations and errors for that, as he pieced together a 6-1, 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 victory over Andrey Golubev of Kazakhstan. Full article
