Roland Garros Recap: Days 1 and 2

Novak's Feeling Chatty

Before his first round match, which he won in straights, Novak dished to the press on his upcoming nuptils with Jelena Ristic. Unfortuantly, he wasn't so keen to give us a date.

Novak was feeling chipper in his first round match and even took the time to have a wee chat with a ball kid. Apparently Novak asked the kid whether he played tennis and who is idol was. The reply? “Cannot tell you”. Obviously not Novak then!

Shanked Balls and Double Faults

Laura Robson wears a discrete rainbow hair tie to show her support

Kait O'Callahan is a contributing writer for OnTheGoTennis.  She is currently at the Australian Open with her brother and will be sharing her stories from the matches they attend.

It's already hot when we turn up for our first match. The wind is blowing strong and it looks like we are in for a day of shanked balls and double faults. It certainly starts that way as we tune in for Frederick Nielson and Kevin Anderson. Nielson, who we developed a soft spot for during his Hopman Cup choke loss to Gasquet, has fought his way through qualifying and been rewarded with a match against the man who donated a huge chunk of his first ATP title's prize money to saving rhinos. Anderson is too good for Nielson, and we leave after the first set.

A Russian woman is seated in front of us, playing with the pearls dangling from her neck. Her matching earrings and expensive looking black dress stand out amongst the masses of t-shirts and denim shorts. She flits on her high heels towards the shade every few games. It's hot work being that glamourous. She's there to watch Nikolay Davydenko, who appears to be playing well against the very defensive Flavio Cipolla. Unfortunately, that all changes when up two sets up to one, Davydenko begins to tire, and eventually loses in five. It's a disappointing first round exit for a man who used to be world number four. We wonder if it is the last time we will see Davydenko live.

Dissecting Davydenko: The Quest for Luck

I have really missed Nikolay Davydenko.

Davydenko, or Kolya as he is known by fans and friends, has always been one of the most underrated players and personalities on tour.  He's a quiet and quirky workhorse with a deceptively tricky game who seemed to be constantly overshadowed by bigger guys, bigger games, and bigger personalities.

Quick Q & A With Nikolay Davydenko

Nikolay Davydenko (aka Kolya) sat down with us and did a few of our Quick Q & A.  There was a bit of a language barrier, but he is absolutely adorable when attempting to answer the questions.   I think my heart melted when he said "Oy"  Enjoy...

You Looking At Me?

Whenever I go to tournaments I walk around the site with my HUGE camera lens to make an attempt to grab a couple of good photos.  For the most part, I think I do a good job, however sometimes I *might* get a little too paparazzo (yes, I just made up that word) and I get the "stink-eye."  I tend to wear it as a badge of honor.

Rafa's Back, And So Am I

ATP Qatar ExxonMobil Open - Day Six

The end of the 2009 season was undoubtedly a long one.  There were too many injuries, too much complaining about the length of the season, and most importantly there was too little of Rafael Nadal doing what he usually does.......win.  But, it's a new year, and it seems that 2010 has the recipe for some exciting tennis.
