Checking in on the women's draw, French Open

The big news on the men's side was Nadal pulling out with a wrist injury.  Obviously makes things easier for Djokovic/Murray/Wawrinka to win.  I'd be stunned if one of those three doesn't win it, but sometimes a clay-court specialist rises to the top.

On the women's side, Eugenie Bouchard went out 6-4, 6-4 to a 15th-seeded player.  The fourth round is almost set, with Serena, Kuznetsova, Halep, Stosur, and Radwanska already into it.  Radwanska is still seeded second -  when is she going to break through?  Still, I'd prefer Halep.

As I write this, Venus Williams just advanced to the fourth round too, over Cornet.  She (Venus) is amazing.

Go Simona!
