Roger Federer’s Outfit for the French Open 2019

Roger Federer in action at the Italian Open

Halep bowed out in the second round of Rome in a three-set thriller against 19-year-old Czech talent Marketa Vondrousova, 2-6, 7-5, 6-3 on Thursday, allowing Osaka to secure the No.1 ranking after Rome and sit as the provisional No.1 seed at Roland Garros.

The Japanese star was due to meet Madrid Open champion and sixth seed Kiki Bertens for a place in the final four in Rome. I feel like there's a big difference between saying No. 1 in the world versus No. 2. "Well, it's been a little bit tough because we had to stay late here yesterday but it was the same for all of us, I can't complain about that".

"I am disappointed that I will not be able to compete today", said Federer, who also reached the quarter-finals in Madrid.

"I haven't really talked to everyone so don't really know the plan is yet".

Fifth seed Dominic Thiem slammed tournament organisers after he was dumped out 4-6, 6-4, 7-5 by Verdasco.

I will be more relaxed than a year ago, trying to enjoy more and hopefully, I can win some matches.

Tsitsipas beat Nadal in last week's Madrid Open semi-finals before falling to Novak Djokovic, but lost to the Spaniard in the Australian Open semis earlier this year. Osaka had just 200 points to defend during the clay swing and she's already tallied 400 points through her first two events.

Mr Kaser, a corn, soybean and hog farmer , said he never lost consciousness during his ordeal, which happened on April 19. Nobody else was home, or due back for several hours, and the hopper began to pull him further inside.

She eased into the last eight in Rome with a 6-3, 6-3 win over Mihaela Buzarnescu. And she retired from her previous meeting with Bertens at last year's WTA Finals with a leg injury. I am not 100 per cent physically and after consultation with my team, it was determined that I not play.

Yesterday I didn't do much.

"I think he got what he deserved", said Ruud of Kyrgios who was then fined 20,000 euros and made to forfeit his tournament winnings. This is exactly what I don't understand, they don't make us play but why do you call time?

"It's not the best result I wanted, but I'm getting better every tournament from Barcelona and looking forward to playing the French", said Nishikori. I always said in the last few months that tennis is very open now. The top is open. Kiki Bertens has a chance, in my opinion, and Stephens again.

"I haven't seen the doctor yet".
