Pablo Carreno Busta, Roland Garros 2016

The world number 43 had solid results this year with two finals in Bueno Aires and Estoril. I don’t know much about this player but he seems a good guy and it looked like he enjoyed his one-hour practice on the Lenglen.
He will face Federico Delbonis in the first round.

Constant Lestienne

Roland Garros officials have revoked Constant Lestienne‘s wild card. The world number 206 is under investigation of the Tennis Integrity Unit: he is believed to have bet on a Roland Garros match last year.

Update: at first I thought it was completely stupid as a player to bet on matches, but when I read on l’Equipe that Lestienne bet €2,90 to close his betting account, my opinion changed completely: Roland Garros officials is completely insane!

Check out my pictures of Constant Lestienne at the Open du Nord 2015 and stay tuned for more Roland Garros coverage.
