Federer returns to play at French Open after 4-year absence

Federer returns to play at French Open after 4-year absence

"I'm very happy to be back, maybe a tiny bit more because when I have missed the last three editions, and when you miss something in life, you're happy to be back there again", he said.

Still hampered by a right ankle injury, the three-time Grand Slam victor lost in the first round of the French Open on Sunday as the clay-court major began with an upset.

The 37-year-old Williams is still waiting for a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam triumph, with her last victory coming at the 2017 Australian Open shortly before taking a break from the sport due to pregnancy.

"Losing in the semi-finals is considered bad..."

Potapova hammered 28 winners past the flailing Kerber, who had been struggling with a right ankle injury in the build-up to the event.

Ahead of the French Open defending champion Simona Halep tells Eurosport that she's still hungry for success.

Ravens to meet with DT Gerald McCoy on Tuesday
Suh, 32, was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2010 draft out of Nebraska, going to the Lions one spot ahead of McCoy. McCoy was released Monday by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a move that was financially motivated.


"The clay season is over now for me".

"If you're talking about longer goals, of course I haven't won Wimbledon yet and it would be really cool to win everything in one year".

"I can't necessarily say it's been ups and downs because if I think about it, it's definitely been going up", she said.

"I appreciate that you (the media) see me like that, but (Dominic) Thiem, Novak (Djokovic), Federer, Tsitsipas who has been playing well, (Juan Martin) del Potro, (Kei) Nishikori - all those that are the best in the world will be favourites".

The 11-time French Open victor said he didn't care about whether or not his chances were being rated in the media ahead of the tournament.
