Thanks a lot to Tony for sharing his story and pictures! It was another memorable evening for me at the BNP Paribas Open. Last night’s Roger Federer practice is probably my second favorite encounter with him since I started attending the tournament in 2008 — my favorite being the time in 2014 when he walked […]

The Open du Nord, in Lille, had the great idea to organize a wheelchair tennis exhibition before the singles final between Karen Khachanov and Rudy Coco: a mini-set (tie break at 4 games all) between the Belgian Joachim Gerard, world number 5 and the French player Nicolas Peifer world number 6. Some spectacular points in […]
Last match on Saturday: the final between number 1 seeds Yannick Mertens and Boy Westerhof and number 2 seeds Jonathan Eysseric and Constant Lestienne. Lots of people left after the second semifinal. The match is not really exciting (by the way I really don’t like the no-ad rule) and the umpire was really bad, I […]

First, a look at the Fall fashion collection. The iconic Lacoste polo shirt […]

This year, the Bulgarian Adrian Andreev dispatched Alexandre Doan Van of France 6-1 […]
