Sweeping the Court

Here are the main draw wild cards for the French Open: Fiona Ferro, Claire Feuerstein, Amandine Hesse, Mathilde Johansson, Alizé Lim, Pauline Parmentier, Taylor Townsend, Ashleigh Barty.

And speaking of the French Open, all hail The Czarina!

Caroline Wozniacki and Rory McIlroy are to be married this summer. The rumor is that the wedding is set for August, but the couple has not publicly confirmed a date. Wozniacki recently told the media that she's interested in being a young mother, but I have no idea what that means because "young" is a subjective term.

Marion Bartoli has been sucked into John Inverdale's P.R. vortex and will work as a co-commentator with him at the French Open. (You know it's bad when I'd actually rather think about Wozilroy.)

As of now, there have been only three injury withdrawals from the French Open: Bethanie Mattek-Sands (hip), Jamie Hampton (hip) and Galina Voskoboeva. I don't want to speculate beyond that, though there are a couple of players who could give us some bad news.

isn't it interesting how the serbs rise together?

I think it's a small country/big spirit thing. Theyy're linked forever, like Clijsters and Henin, but on a less successful level.
