2017 French Open: Getting Ready for the Quarterfinals

2017 French Open: Getting Ready for the Quarterfinals (May 22nd-June 11th. Paris, France)

On the 8th and 9th days of Roland Garros, the matches determining the quarterfinals contenders were held. 2015 champion Stan Wawrinka secured his spot after knocking home favorite Gaël Monfils out of the draw 7-5, 7-6(7), 6-2, and will face ATP No. 8 Marin Cilic next.



2016 Doubles champ Caroline Garcia defeated compatriot Alizé Cornet in straight sets, advancing to a Grand Slam quarterfinals for the first time. Caroline’s racquet is also gathering attention, as some coaches have requested information about her equipment, noticing that “her shots are more powerful compared to last year.”

In Women’s Doubles, Martina Hingis/Yung-Jan Chan crushed their opponents Bertens and Larsson 6-2, 6-0, while 2017 Australian Open Women’s Doubles finalist Andrea Hlavackova and her partner subdued the French pair Parmentier/Bourgue in Mixed Doubles.
