All right, by now we know the outcome of this terrific Grand Slam, the French Open hosted at Roland Garros. This year, the tournament was incredibly rained out, so much that the art on the lower levels of the Louvre had to be relocated to higher floors. Alas the Mona Lisa herself had to make a new home for herself, I wonder if she has returned to her central view down below?
And the Seine, river that flows between the East and West banks of gai Paris, how did she overflow and block and absolutely stop this fabulous city in its tracks, even the subways did not operate, how could anyone even get to this French Open, you may ask?

As for the women's competition, Maria Sharapova, how could you really not know that that meldonium drug you are taking is a banned substance from your chosen sport? Many fans and foes alike are asking this question, it is a reasonable one. You are now banned from playing competitive tennis for two years, that is a long time. Keep practicing those serves and deep breaths.
I like what Andy Murray has to say about this, "You can continue to train, to keep fit but losing match fitness ... that's what helps you win," said Murray.

AND, the women's champion? Garbine Muguruza, form Spain! What a great match, but sorrry for Serena Williams as she had a tough time trying to dominate. It just was not working that day for her. The limelight was all on Muguruza, who was lithe, elegant and beautiful in her physicality, her demeanor, her guts and glory.
Congratulations, Garbine Muguruza!
