The tournament is already over for the Australian Open champion: Li Na was ousted by French youngster Kristina Mladenovic in the first round. Kristina Mladenovic, No. 103 (picture below) had won only one match at Roland Garros in her previous five appearances.
Enjoy these pictures of Li Na at practice on Friday on Court Suzanne Lenglen and on Court 5 on Sunday. If you attend the tournament and want to share your pictures/videos/recaps please contact us.
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.
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.
