French Open miscellany

With her advancement to the quarterfinals, Francesca Schiavone--that would be "the amazing Francesca Schiavone"--will enter the top 10 for the first time in her career.

In case you missed it, here is Steve Tignor's poignant piece on Maria Sharapova's French Open run.

Yaroslava Shvedova is handling the cold Paris weather by wearing an old-school tennis sweater. Very nice.

In mixed doubles, Nuria Llagostera Vives and Oliver Marach defeated Alisa Kleybanova and Max Mirnyi 7-6 (7), 7-6 (7).

If you don't have Tennis Channel, or if you missed the feature on Shahar Peer, you can see it on the Tennis Channel website. Go to the Video On Demand page, and select "Shahar Peer Feature."
