Defending Champion Williams Bows Out to Garbine Muguruza

rolandgarros.com May 28, 2014 Dan Imhoff Paris, France - Great champions don’t take losing lightly. Where they may openly claim after defeat to simply put the disappointment behind them, truth is the loss festers and drives them to make amends the only way they know how – by winning all over again. Serena Williams makes no secret of her hatred for defeat. The defending women’s champion was soundly beaten 6-2 6-2 in her second-round tussle with the statuesque Garbine Muguruza, a 20-year-old Spaniard she had easily accounted for at Melbourne Park only last year. Coming into the match Williams had never failed to reach the second week as top seed. After her stunning first-round defeat to Virginie Razzano in Paris two years ago – to date her only opening loss at a major – she rebounded in the most emphatic way possible, recapturing the Wimbledon title weeks later before returning to the red clay last year to claim just her second French Open crown.

Federer Coasts to Third Round

rolandgarros.com: May 28, 2014 By Kate Battersby Paris, France -  Roger Federer was in mellow mode at Roland Garros on Day 4 of the 2014 tournament. He saw off the qualifier Diego Sebastian Schwartzmann 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 to secure his place in the third round, but instead of exiting Suzanne Lenglen Court immediately, he lingered for 15 minutes or more, exchanging knockabout stuff with television interviewers, signing autographs and posing for selfies. Small wonder he eventually left to wild applause. In cool and sometimes drizzly conditions, it wasn’t even as if the No.4 seed had the match against the Argentinian entirely his own way. Schwartzmann, ranked No.109, was celebrating his first appearance in a Slam main draw having won through qualifying at his fifth attempt. He had played just six tour-level matches before this, and his first-round victory over fellow qualifier Gastao Elias was only his second tour-level win. Standing just 1.70m tall, Schwartzmann is one of the shortest players around, and hence will always be at a disadvantage. But he got the most out of his appearance on the big show court, and did not allow the 17-time Grand Slam champion to to feel at ease. Full article

Djokovic Too Much for Chardy

rolandgarros.com May 28, 2014 By Matt Trollope Paris France - In his first round match on Phillipe Chatrier Court two days ago, Novak Djokovic was the crowd darling, charming the thousands in attendance by inviting a young courtside umbrella-holder onto his seat to share a drink and a chat during a changeover in his match against Portugal’s Joao Sousa. On Wednesday in the second round, he was cast in the role of the villain, invading the terre battue of Roland Garros against one of France’s own, Jeremy Chardy. Yet such was the impeccable level of the Serb’s play that he extinguished any role the crowd may have had to play in this battle, comprehensively winning 6-1, 6-4, 6-2 and advancing to a final 32 meeting against No.25 seed Marin Cilic.
