French Open: Major Withdrawal


We’ve made it through a calamitous opening week of the French Open with plenty to discuss, both on and off the court. Simon and Devang give their thoughts on the withdrawals of Naomi Osaka and Roger Federer and their subsequent coverage. On the court, Nadal and Djokovic continued on their path towards confrontation, while Serena Williams introduced tweaks to her game. On the youth scene, Iga Swiatek continues to dominate at Roland Garros while the Tsitsipas quest for slam immortality trudges on. It’s a big show, so join us on another Open Era!
