Dominic Thiem Roland Garros outfit

The new Roland Garros line by adidas takes inspiration from the bold colours that set the scene of the Parisian Grand Slam tournament. Statement colour blocking in green, white and grey is accentuated with bold emblems –providing a contemporary finish to the classic tennis look.

The collection is built to keep athletes comfortable in a multitude of conditions, with a combination of Clima technologies and mesh detail offering ventilation and quick evaporation of sweat.

The men’s collection includes a polo, which will be worn by Tomas Berdych and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, and tee, to be worn by Dominic Thiem and Sascha Zverev – both with a unique contrast colour band along the hemline.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Rotterdam 2017

Six years after reaching the Rotterdam final, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga finally lifts the trophy, rallying back from a set down to defeat David Goffin 4-6 6-4 6-1. This is Tsonga’s 13th ATP title, his second ATP 500 after Tokyo in 2009.
With this final, Goffin reaches the top 10 for the first time of his career, becoming the first Belgian male player to do so.

Dominika Cibulkova, Roland Garros 2016

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 year. As for Dominika Cibulkova, semifinalist here in 2009, she had a good clay-court season, with a final in Madrid.

Lots of unforced errors from both players. Not a really enjoyable match.

Court 17

Cibulkova can’t stay still for a second. For her gruntings for first point on are really annoying.
