The French Open: Redemption and Surprise

Rafael Nadal has reclaimed his title of King of the Clay, taking revenge on Robin Soderling by beating him in straight sets. Nadal is now 38-1 at Roland Garros, the French Open court, his one loss courtesy of Soderling. Afterwards Nadal tweeted, “REVENGE!!!1”, then followed up with another tweet that read, “I iz teh clay masta, ain’t no betta”.

On the Women’s side of things, Francesca Schiavone beat out Samantha Stosur and became the first Italian woman to win a Grand Slam title. Soon to be 30, she is also the oldest woman to make a Top 10 debut since 1998. In related news, Russian tennis starlets will be cutting back on some of their upcoming SI shoots to be better prepared for Wimbledon.
