Tsonga out of French Open in 1st round

01 June 2017

Williams' surprise appearance at the sporting event was in support of sister Venus Williams, who won her second round, 6-3, 6-1, against Japanese opponent Kurumi Nara.

Serena's sister, Venus Williams, referred to her sister's baby as "she" in a post-match interview Wednesday, ABC News reported. Remember in April how Serena revealed she was expecting her first child with her Reddit cofounder fiancé, Alexis Ohanian?

With Li Na long since retired that means the winners of five of the past six French Opens - Williams (2013, 2015), Sharapova (2012, 2014) and Li (2011) - are absent from the field, while several pretenders to the Coupe Suzanne Lenglen are battling injury and loss of form. The French Open 2017 will end on June 11.

"I won the match today but I knew I had already won", she added in reference to the initial nightmare scenario in which she feared she'd lose the fingers on her left playing hand. "I thought I missed a few, but apparently not", Williams said with a smile. Venus Williams went pro at age 14, so she has been making an incredible living in professional tennis for over twenty years. I just know he was looking down on me on that last point.

"I'm sure she feels the excitement of being at a major and not having the pressure to play and prepare". What can I say?

Williams, seeded 10, has played every year since 1997 with the exception of 2011 and despite her senior citizen status, she is still a contender at the Slams as her run to the Australian Open final in January proved.

Seven of her past nine visits to the French Open have ended in the third round or earlier, with two exits in the first round, two in the second and three in third, and twice she has reached the fourth round.

Tsonga had never lost to a player ranked as low as No. 91 at a Grand Slam. "Just to get through it was something that I know I'll be very proud of".

Ekaterina Makarova, who upset top-seeded Angelique Kerber in the first round, could not follow up on her great performance and exited the French Open. I took it one point at a time to stay calm. She and Serena also have another sister, Yetunde Price. "That's the competition I face", Williams said.
