Na Li, 29 and Francesca Schiavone, 31 will play today in the oldest women’s Grand Slam final since Jana Novotna and Nathalie Tauziat contested the 1998 Wimbledon final.
The final will be really open as they are both experienced players who both played in a Grand Slam final before (Li lost to Clijsters at the Australian Open, and Schiavone won the title here in 2010).

Will Li become the first chinese player to capture a Grand Slam or will Schiavone retain her title? Please share your thoughts.

Sure he doesn’t play his best tennis but he’s once again in final, his sixth at Roland Garros. A sixth victory to equal Bjorn Borg?

Court Suzanne Lenglen, fifth set of the fourth round match between Murray and Troicki.

I must be an idiot but I always thought that when you’re injured you’re supposed to shorten up the points. Apparently not. By the way, Murray didn’t seem injured at all and he can thank Troicki who simply gave him the match.
