Muguruza through to 2nd round at French Open

However, the headline act on Lenglen remains Rafael Nadal who takes on the extremely talented and yet supremely temperamental Benoit Paire.

Fortunately, though, he is back in top form as he starts his quest for a 10th title at Roland Garros. "Great serve, great hands and fantastic backhand", said Nadal. "So I am focused on trying to work the right way".

The clay courts of Roland Garros host the second Grand Slam of the season. "As I said many times, unfortunately for tennis and unfortunately for the spectators, the top four can not play forever".

"Rafa playing on his favourite surface won three tournaments in a row this year, and playing confidently and much better than he was playing last year", Djokovic said.

Dominic in an interview said: "After these three (Nadal, Djokovic and Murray), I think there are some players who can go very deep here who can make big surprises and to these players I count Sascha (Alexander Zverev) and myself". Monday and Tuesday I didn't feel great, but I still got some practice in on Tuesday.

'Flags-in' Memorial Day ceremony held at Arlington National Cemetery
But Memorial Day , observed on the last Monday of May, honors the men and women who died while serving in the USA military. The Claremore Veterans Center (CVC) will hold a Memorial Day Service at 1:30 p.m.in their auditorium, located at 3001 W.

"I am very happy the way that I arrived here", he said.

"I haven't played well, I've had a few issues", he told reporters this week. "Beating Novak, no doubt has been a huge confidence-booster", he informed. "It's the best we've seen him play in a few years". "Their level of tennis is quite fantastic".

Djokovic recently split with long-time coach Marian Vajda and also ended a three-year relationship with six-time Grand Slam champion Boris Becker at the end of last season.

Defending champion Novak Djokovic won his first match under new coach Andre Agassi to reach the second round of the French Open in Paris.

Andy Murray is way from his form and the Scottish tennis player seems to have lost his touch, after he finished the past year at the top spot at ATP Rankings. He was then beaten in the first round at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics, reached the final of the U.S. Open, and lost early again at the Australian Open.

French President brands his handshake with Trump as 'moment of truth'
And then there was his handshake with Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau . 'All over the world they're talking about it'. The POTUS congratulated him on his recent election victory. " That's how you ensure you are respected ", he said.

Looking ahead to the clay court tournament, which begins tomorrow, Djokovic, who has won 12 Grand Slam singles titles, said he was delighted to have Agassi, the Olympic champion from Atlanta 1996, by his side.

"It's an awesome feeling to be back and to look at this trophy".

However, an agonising series of wrist injuries pushed him to the brink of retirement before a comeback a year ago saw him reach the Olympics final. "Winning here was one of the most special feelings on the court, one of the highlights of my career".

With Williams, Maria Sharapova and Victoria Azarenka all absent, and world number one Angelique Kerber crashing out on Sunday, Muguruza knows the opportunity is there for a number of players.

Murray is in the same half of the draw as 2015 champion Stan Wawrinka, who he beat in last year's semi-finals.

Zverev downs Isner to reach Rome final
The Serbian was outplayed by Spanish nemesis Rafael Nadal on his way to defeat in the semi-finals of the Madrid Masters last week. Boris Becker, a six-time Grand Slam victor , left in December after three years as the 29-year-old's main coach.

She'd be a popular champion as would be Juan Martin del Potro, the giant Argentine whose huge potential, illustrated by his 2009 US Open victory, should have been the first chapter in a Grand Slam success story.
