Sloane Stephens is a very lucid, active dreamer.
Patrick McEnroe predicted that Agnieszka Radwanska would win the French Open. Her recent exit from the tournament marks one of the few times that McEnroe has made an incorrect prediction about who would win a major championship.
18 years ago today, Mary Pierce defeated Steffi Graf 6-2, 6-2 at the French Open.
Had she not survived the first week at Roland Garros, Li Na said, she would have asked for a wild card into Birmingham. As it is, she's going straight to Wimbledon after the French Open.
Todd Spiker reminds us that "AMG is STILL linked in history with Anna Smashnova as the only players to ever win double-digit WTA singles titles but never reach a slam Final 8." Todd has kept an eye on Medina Garrigues for years, noting that she she holds this unfortunate distinction. And since 10 of the Spaniard's 11 titles were won on clay, it's especially daunting that she hasn't done better at the French Open. The current French Open is Medina Garrigues' 40th major. (It should be noted, however, that Medina Garrigues holds two French Open doubles titles.)
