I find the new web site so crap, difficult to navigate as well as unclear. The saying "better is the enemy of good" makes full sense!

Me, too...I now actually check ATP website for results and schedule of play.
I don't know why they changed it, it was perfect before!

And you can't find interviews, little video features any more...

Visually, tennis in RG looks like 5-6 years ago...slow-mo.

Kvitova 's shots were flying like bullets in Madrid and Rome, here - unrecognisable.

Same in Murray's match yesterday...I feel it was never this slow.

Yes, I am not sure what Babolat and teh TDs were on about here!

Maybe they want to create another "History" with Nadal's 10 slams....though had they wanted to, they coudl not have made it worse for his draw.

Babolat is just desperate to make their numbers....and the TD did not quite understand the effect of those balls.

When the FO asked Babolat to provide balls in 2011 they asked them to produce exactly the same characteristics as the Dunlops..which they did (weight and size) except for the rigidity of the rubber which made the balls fly even more than the Dunlop. Nadal hated them then and they learnt their lessons.

So now they have probably providing the same characteristics as Dunlops in terms of weight and size but with less pressure and softer rubber core. TDs would hardly notice, but Babolat certainly knows what they are doing!  

However I expect the TD to have a word with Babolat for next year....a bit late for this tournament, unfortunately.

Here is a funny article from a Serbian B92 journalist who attempted to get an interview from Nadal in some off-site practice courts...

http://www.b92.net/sport/rolandgarros2015/ozmo-na-sljaci.php?yyyy=2015&mm=05&dd=25&nav_id=996321

He said 95% of balls he hit during the training were FHs, and that he had trouble with CC ones a lot more than DTL (obviously as there was no pressure).

When he wanted to chat with Sebastian (the dad) Nadal's PR guy (who used to PR Nole in the past as well) prevented it and told the journalist: Why don't you go and interview Srdjan (Nole's dad)...
And when he approached Nadal, BRbadilo stepped in again: "Why don't you interview Nole?"

So, Rafa camp are clearly super annoyed with the draw.

I reckon Nole will stop him in QF, balls, draw, crowd...the lot.
Nothing will stop him!

Vesely, once again, 2 points away from a 2 sets to love lead, ends up being 2 sets to 1 down!

He is a bit too conservative for his ability.

Yes, and only 18.

he must be great on anything faster than this year's Chatrier. Great serve!
Nadal, unlike all other players looks the same as ever in terms of shot speed.

He looks very beatable, though!

He got the forst round opponent of his dreams but the nightmare ine is waiting for him in the QF ghost

Halys spent after one set.
Serve gone. No focus. Auto-pilot ball-striking mode.

Nole looking very, very good.

Making the ball work for him by taking it early.
By far, the best I've seen him play in RG.

The crowd are warming up to Nole this year, nice to see.
My French sources are telling me he is very popular among young people there Winking

What's interesting is that having a DHBH makes Yarrko more dangerous than Federer on those slow courts!

A SHBH is such a handicap nowadays!

Jarkko attacks a lot more. Movement doesn't really seem to be as important to him as shotmaking. He can't rely on it so he attacks!

Nole doesn't.

I really don't see Jarrko as a shotmaker...he is e same as Ferrer, except that Ferrer is more consistent.
No hands at all. Just an average weaponless percentage baseliner.

Nole played nice tennis in the first set, like he does when he is in the lead, then got carried away a bit and Nieminen took advantage, so Nole now back to his bulletproof trench mode.
