Bolt Replaces Noah As Trophy Presenter

Although this is the 30th anniversary of Yannick Noah becoming the last French man to win the French Open title, and he has been at Roland Garros this week, the French Federation de Tennis have avoided a potential frosty incident with seven times champion Rafael Nadal and appointed Olympic and world record holding sprinter Usain Bolt to present the trophy after Sunday’s men’s final.



Sharapova Enjoys A Relaxing Day Before The Finals

Maria Sharapova was taking a relaxed attitude a day before her French Open final with Serena Williams, with her first order of business being a meal at Roland Garros. "Have lunch," the holder said when asked what she would do with  her day before the weekend clash. "Right now I'm pretty hungry."

There were also other options on the table: "I might go take a walk.  I don't think I'll be doing any shopping.  But, it's really the usual, nothing that's changing from the last few days."


Noah Almost Didn't Play The 1983 French Open

Yannick Noah's amazing run to the 1983 Roland Garros title is being celebrated on a daily basis in Paris, but the now popular singer revealed that he almost wasn't allowed to play the French Open that year.

"What is amazing is that I actually almost quit but before," Noah told Le Monde. "Fifteen days before the start of the tournament, I played in the Nations Cup in Dusseldorf. I was busy preparing for Roland and I really felt like I was wasting my time. It was raining, you couldn't train, and we were told that we would have to wait two days to play the match for the last place.”
