France vs Belgium Davis Cup final

Three years after the France vs Switzerland final, the Pierre Mauroy stadium in Lille hosts a final between two neighbours: France and Belgium. It was my third Davis Cup final in 3 years, and once again a rollercoaster of emotions. Read my recap here:

Alexander Zverev, Roland Garros 2016

I usually like preparing my day at Roland Garros, and write down the matches I want to watch but more often than not I end up watching different matches than those planned. I had in mind to attend either Coric-Fritz on court 8 or Bouchard-Siegemund on court 16. But given the long long long queues to enter the stadium and the queue to access court 16, I made my way to court 17 as I wanted to watch the end of the match between 2010 French Open finalist Sam Stosur and Misaki Doi. But first on court 17, 74-ranked Qiang Wang faces 17-year-old French wild card Tessah Andrianjafitrimo.

I have nothing against that player I had never heard of before, but I really don’t get why Roland Garros officials awarded a wild card to Tessah Andrianjafitrimo who is ranked 311th and has never won a WTA match. 6-0 6-0 for Wang in an hour… no comment.

Andy Murray, Monte Carlo 2016

Tougher than expected for Andy Murray who needs 3 sets to defeat Pierre-Hugues Herbert in the second round of the Monte Carlo Masters. Murray had his best clay season last year, with wins in Munich and Madrid, as well as a semifinal in Roland Garros. How well do you think he will play on clay this year?
