For the first time in years, all the big stars (minus Murray who had back surgery) played the BNP Paribas Masters in Paris. Nadal and Djokovic were fighting for the number 1 ranking whereas Federer, Wawrinka, Tsonga and co were all fighting for a qualification to the ATP Finals in London.
For the first time in the tournament history, the eight quarter-finalists were qualified for the ATP Finals in London. Djokovic defeated the defending champion David Ferrer in the final, and clinched his 40th career title.

It was a busy Sunday yesterday at Roland Garros with eight fourth-round matches but also the end of two third-round matches that were suspended by night on Saturday: Verdasco-Gasquet and Murray-Kohlscheiber.

Gulbis described his victory as the biggest of his career whereas Federer said he was disappointed but had already switched to grass mentally. Do you think Federer can bounce back and win Wimbledon?

Novak Djokovic dismantled Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-1 6-4 6-1 in one hour and 29 minutes and appears as the big favorite for the title.

Richard Gasquet practised twice on Court Lenglen on Friday. First with Paul-Henri Mathieu and then a few hours later with a Spanish player (not sure about that, I didn’t recognize him). Gasquet seemed frustrated by his game at times and still bothered by his back pains.

12 Grand Slams combined on one side of the net, 1 on the other side: Novak Djokovic and Marin Cilic joined by their coaches Boris Becker and Goran Ivanisevic practised together on court Suzanne Lenglen on Friday.

They were joined at the end of the session by Richard Gasquet, his coach Sergi Bruguera and Paul-Henri Mathieu. Bruguera and Ivanisevic seemed happy to see each other, look at that hug:

Bruguera and Ivanisevic both made their big breakthrough in Paris in 1990 as they knocked the first two seeds out of the first round of the French Open. The Spaniard beat Stefan Edberg (finalist in 1989) while the Croat beat Boris Becker. Bruguera was defeated by another Swede, Jonas Svensson in the next round but Ivanisevic reached the quarterfinals where he lost to Thomas Muster.
