French Open tournament director Amelie Mauresmo defended the night sessions after both Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic said their match started too late. At around 9:05 p.m. French time, Nadal and Djokovic began their quarterfinal match.

The game lasted just over four hours and ended after 1 in the morning. After the match, both Nadal and Djokovic said that the match started too late. “As far as I’m concerned, the night sessions at the stadium are definitely appropriate, because it was always packed to the brim every night,” Mauresmo said, according to the BBC.

“There was real excitement. People could work during the day and still watch the game at night. I’m learning a lot about the tournament schedule. We’ll actually have a feedback session on it at the end, but it’s only 10 night games in total”

In the first 10 days, only one women’s match was scheduled for the night session. Addressing the situation, Mauresmo basically said that male matches are more attractive. “In this time we find ourselves in – and as a woman, a former female player, I don’t feel bad or unfair in saying this – the men’s games have more appeal, in general,” Mauresmo said.

Tennis commentator Annabel Croft noted that the match between Nadal and Djokovic was the easy choice for the evening session. “Would you honestly replace Nadal’s match against Djokovic last night with a women’s match?” Croft said on BBC Radio 5 Live.

“There’s a natural demand and that’s what it is. You can’t force it.”

Djokovic is ranked No. 3 in the world
Tennis superstar Novak Djokovic has come under scrutiny for his vaccination stance from business tycoon and former World No.

19 Ion Tiriac. “He wants to be a personality, but he doesn’t have the charisma of McEnroe or Nastase,” Tiriac said. “So it’s a little more difficult. Without a doubt he is a great player and a great worker.

But he’s not Nadal.” The Serb won the title at SW19 last year, beating Matteo Berrettini in the final, but will lose all of his 2000 points even if he wins the tournament this year. Djokovic will return to defend his crown at Wimbledon later this month.

He has not played any event since his quarter-final exit at Roland Garros to Rafael Nadal. The 35-year old will need to maintain his level of consistency at SW19 to win a 21st Grand Slam title. Djokovic is ranked No. 3 in the world right now but will drop out of the top-5 after Wimbledon.

2022 is not going well for Novak Djokovic. The former world number 1 was unable to compete in the Australian Open due to the well-known vaccination issue, as well as having undergone a bureaucratic and media process that damaged his image.

The Serbian champion hoped to redeem himself at Roland Garros, where he was considered his great favorite, especially after the triumph in Rome without losing a single set. After walking in the first week, his run sadly ended in the quarterfinals against his eternal rival Rafael Nadal.

The Spaniard then hoisted himself to 22 Majors, further stretching on Federer and Djokovic. The 35-year-old from Belgrade will necessarily have to impose himself at Wimbledon to close the gap, given that he will hardly be able to go to New York to compete in the US Open.

According to the latest rumors, the United States has no intention of ‘lightening’ health measures and will not discount the 20-time Grand Slam champion. To the microphones of ‘GB News’, Nigel Farage broke a spear in favor of Nole.

Farage opens up on Djokovic
“The US Open has decided that Russian and Belarusian players can play in the US Open, but that Novak Djokovic cannot play in the US Open because he hasn’t had the vaccine,” Farage said.

“This is madness. There are no health grounds to back this up whatsoever.” He added that the move had more to do with having “control” rather than health concerns. “Indeed, I have to say I argued strongly here with doctors as to whether I should have the booster,” Farage said.

“I concluded in the end, I shouldn’t have the booster and the reasons. Very simple, whether you’ve had the vaccine or not, you can still catch Covid. Whether you’ve had the vaccine or not, you can still spread covid.

The argument for having the vaccine is, if you get it, you will be less ill. But bear in mind Novak Djokovic is one of the healthiest 35-year-olds living in the world today,” he continued. “He’s got full health insurance.

There is absolutely no way he will present any burden of any kind at all to the US authorities. This isn’t about health, it’s about control.” Travis believes that the final Grand Slam of the year must include the three-time champion in the draw.

According to Travis, the likes of basketball player Kyrie Irving (including Djokovic), who have refused the vaccination will seem smarter by the day. Talking to FOX News, he says, “It’s a joke. So, I think this will end up getting resolved and Djokovic will play”.

Tiger Woods finished the day in a tie for 91st region.

At the ninth hollow of the primary round, Tiger Woods slammed his golfing club into the floor in frustration.

Afterward, he walked up to the inexperienced with a more mentioned limp than were seen earlier inside the day and sooner or later completed the hollow with a bogey, kicking off a run of three consecutive bogeys.
As he maintains his comeback from critical leg accidents sustained in a vehicle accident ultimate 12 months, Woods struggled within the establishing round of the PGA Championship carding a 74, 9 strokes behind in a single day chief Rory McIlroy.

“My leg is not feeling as good as I would like it to be,” Woods told the media afterwards.

The PGA Championship marks Woods’ second major tournament since his injury after he made a surprise appearance at The Masters last month.
“We’ll start the recovery process and get after it tomorrow. I just can’t load it. Loading hurts, pressing off it hurts, walking hurts and twisting hurts. It’s just golf. If I don’t play that, then I’m all right.”
Woods’ round began brightly with two birdies and three pars in the opening five holes before his leg began to trouble him and he limped to 4-over par at the end of the day.
In his last 13 holes, he only hit three greens, made six bogeys and consistently misjudged his bunker shots.

“All the bunker shots sort of came out hot,” Woods said. “The sand is a lot faster than I thought it would be.”
“Kind of been that way all week, especially if you get up in the areas where it’s not raked… I feel like sometimes the sand — I’m guessing, and I guessed wrong.”

Woods hit a total of three birdies, eight pars and seven bogeys in his opening round.
Woods seemed to arrive at the Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa with a relatively conservative strategy, choosing to iron off the tee while the other players in his star-studded group — McIlroy and Jordan Speith — hit with drivers.
While McIlroy averaged 331 yards off the tee, Woods averaged just 293.4 yards — the 136th shortest distance in a field of 156.
“The game is just different,” Woods said. “It’s much more aggressive now, and I know that. But I was playing to my spots. If I would have hit the ball solidly on those two holes and put the ball in the fairway, I would have been fine.”
Woods tees off for the second round at 2:36 p.m. ET on Friday.

The Californian has 4 victories and 3 runner-ups and 2 Top 10s in the twenty participations in which he has taken part

After the assertion by the PGA of the usa of Phil Mickelson’s resignation to guard his name won ultimate year at the PGA Championship, the arrival of Tiger Woods to the city of Tulsa in Oklahoma for the second important of the season changed into eagerly awaited.

A fact that has occurred this afternoon when the private plane of the 15 times Major champion, four of them in this US PGA. This will be the twenty-first time that the Californian takes part in this event in which he has, in addition to those four victories, five other Top 10, three of them runner-ups.

It is Tiger’s second participation in 2022.
The 104th edition of the PGA Championship will be played once again at the Southern Hills course located in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and several stories surround the second major of 2022. Some refer to the championship and its participants, others have more to do with the conflict between the PGA Tour and the new league financed by Arab capital.

It will be Woods’ second appearance this year: his appearance in the 2022 PGA calendar was precisely in the first Grand Slam, the Masters at Augusta (Georgia), where he finished 47th with +13. The champion was the local Scottie Scheffler (-10).

How Tiger arrives at the tournament
If you are wondering how Tiger arrives at the PGA Championship, the answer is that we don’t know much. His comeback in the “Masters week” was better than many predicted and a month later his leg should be a little better.

Southern Hills is a course with level changes where his leg will again be put to the test, but nothing as demanding as Augusta. A course that tests all aspects of the game, it is perhaps one of the most underrated courses by the general public. Tiger Woods will be the main attraction at the PGA Championship, but there is another gentleman who will also attract the public’s attention.

Tiger, for many the greatest golfer in history and winner of 15 Majors, came to Augusta with a 14-month inactivity due to a serious car accident suffered in Los Angeles in February 2021. He finished the first round in the top ten but then fell down the leaderboard.

The 2022 Roland Garros is just across the corner and Serena Williams is about to miss the event she has received thrice in her career.

The mythical Williams has ruled the girls’s excursion for more than decades. But, she has been missing in motion for pretty a while now. The forty-year-vintage injured herself during her first-spherical conflict in opposition to Aliaksandra Sasnovich at Wimbledon final year and has been on the sidelines ever considering.

The long hiatus will render her unable to compete at Roland Garros, a tournament that has been special for her. She tasted Grand Slam glory across all disciplines for the first time at the French Open when she won the women’s doubles title alongside her elder sister Venus Williams in 1999.

In 2002, Serena Williams won the singles title at Roland Garros as well. It was the first of four consecutive Majors that she would go on to win, constituting the first of her two self-coined Serena Slams.

In 2010, she won her second doubles title at the tournament.

Williams then had to wait until 2013 to triumph in Paris for the second time in singles. She defeated defending champion and rival Maria Sharapova in straight sets to complete her Double Career Grand Slam.

Williams returned to the winner’s circle once again in 2015 after defeating Lucie Safarova in the final. It was her 20th Grand Slam title which helped her complete the Triple Career Grand Slam.

The French Open remains the only Grand Slam tournament where Williams hasn’t defended her title. She has won consecutive titles in the remaining three Majors.

Since returning to the tour in 2018 following the birth of her daughter Olympia, Williams’ best showing at the French Open has been a fourth-round appearance in 2018 and 2021.

Serena Williams to potentially make a comeback at this year’s Wimbledon
Serena Williams, meanwhile, has hinted at a potential comeback at this year’s Wimbledon Championships. At a bitcoin conference in April, she discussed her return to tennis with NFL star Aaron Rodgers.

“Alright so I am backstage at the Bitcoin conference in Miami with Aaron Rodgers here and we’ve been talking about my comeback, and he’s been hyping me up, getting me ready for Wimbledon,” she said.
When Rodgers questioned Williams about the US Open, she stated that since the grasscourt Major will be held before the Grand Slam in New York, that’s where she’ll compete first.

“Wimbledon’s before the US Open, I have to play Wimbledon first. Exciting,” she said.

Williams has gone on to become one of the most successful players at Wimbledon, winning seven titles in singles, six in doubles and one in mixed doubles. She also won her gold medals in singles and doubles at the 2012 Olympics on the lawns of the All England Club.

Williams is a huge favorite to win the title whenever she competes at Wimbledon, so her return would certainly add plenty of excitement.
