Anusha Rasalingam wrote a nice piece here, reflecting on the two Roland Garros champions.

Steve Tignor took a look at the week ahead on grass for, examining some rankings scenarios on the men’s side:

Murray will also want to make a quick transition from clay, and into a new coaching situation with Amelie Mauresmo. After Paris, he’s 105 points behind Federer for the No. 4 spot going into Wimbledon; both guys are defending champion’s points this week. Berdych is 200 points behind Murray.

    Slight correction: Vicki Duval beat Caroline Garcia, not Paszek. Another American, Lauren Davis, beat Paszek. Nice results for both!

    Also, Tignor is odd here in emphasizing the Murray/Federer battle for #4. Given the Wimbledon seeding formula, I think it’s already assured that Federer and Murray will both be top-4 seeds (Wawrinka is the odd man out–I don’t think even winning Queen’s can get him into the top 4 of the Wimbledon seeding formula).
