No trouble for Andy Murray after two nerve-wracking five-set marathon matches in the previous rounds, as he dispatched Ivo Karlovic 6-1 6-4 7-6 on court Lenglen. A quick start, a dominating second set and a solid third set, and Murray reaches the fourth round where he’ll meet another big-server, John Isner. Karlovic was in danger […]
Dominika Cibulkova defeats Ana Konjuh 6-4 3-6 6-0 Back to Roland Garros today and I’m back on court 17 to watch a match that looks exciting … on paper. A former junior number one, Ana Konjuh was touted as a future top ten player. Aged 18, she won her first WTA tournament in Nottingham last […]
A solid 6-4 6-4 3-6 6-2 win for Feliciano Lopez over Italian player Thomas Fabbiano, ranked 117. He will next face Victor Estrella Burgos in the second round. With Federer’s Grand Slam appearance streak now over at 65, the longest active run belongs to Feliciano Lopez (57).

While Tsonga and Melzer were playing on Court Central in front of 10,000 people, Tommy Robredo and Kei Nishikori were battling on Court 1 in front of about 300 people. Court 1 is terrible, the ceiling is low, it is really noisy and looks like a warehouse or a bunker. The only good thing is […]
I only watched the first set, won easily by Tsonga 6-2, before heading to court 1 for the Nishikori-Robredo second round match. I was quite surprised to learn that Tsonga had to battle three sets to defeat Melzer. Here are a few pictures of the match: Follow our Bercy 2014 coverage on Tennis Buzz.

Murray who is fifth in the race, needs to reach […]
A really solid 6-3 6-4 win for Novak Djokovic who is once again the big favorite for the title here. But he could lose his number one ranking if he loses in quarterfinals and Roger Federer wins the tournament. Djokovic’s coach, Boris Becker won the Bercy tournament three times in 1986, 1989 and 1992. He […]
