1989 marks the 25th anniversary of Michael Chang lone Grand Slam title at Roland Garros (read more about his victory here). Kei Nishikori, winner in Barcelona and finalist in Madrid will not repeat Chang’s feat this year as he lost to Martin Klizan in the first round.
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.
