I must be an idiot but I always thought that when you’re injured you’re supposed to shorten up the points. Apparently not. By the way, Murray didn’t seem injured at all and he can thank Troicki who simply gave him the match.

A photo recap of my third day at Roland Garros on Tuesday. I had tickets for for the Court Suzanne Lenglen, but watching players at practice was much more interesting than watching matches.

I was in Paris today for the first day of Roland Garros quarterfinals. I’ve been able to watch Schiavone and Nadal training, the end of Murray vs Troicki, but also some doubles and mixed doubles. Pics and videos coming soon.

Here’s a pic of Francesca Schiavone during her training this morning:

Francesca qualified for the semifinals after a hard fought win over Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 1-6 7-5 7-5. She will meet Marion Bartoli who defeated 2009 champion Svetlana Kuznetsova.
