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.
