French Open Day 7

Another rainy day at Roland Garros. What a small difference there is between the top pros. Henin should have lost that match or at least I think it should have been closer. Sharapova came out firing. She was up 2-0 and 40-0 against Henin’s serve. She was blasting balls on the first break point, and […]

Day 2 French Open
