Venus Williams vs. Elise Mertens 2017 French Open Pick, Odds, Prediction

Tennis star Serena Williams pregnant with her 1st child Serena Williams pens letter to future baby: "'You taught me the true meaning of serenity and peace".

Williams will next face either Richel Hogenkamp of the Netherlands or Elise Mertens of Belgium.

I think you just have to be ready, aware and alert. "You know, she played well".

Konta crashes out of French Open
His best result at the French Open was reaching the semifinals in 2009, just months before he won his Grand Slam title in NY . In the second round Svitolina will face Tsvetana Pironkova , who defeated Mona Barthel 6-0 6-4.

In the top half of her draw, though, lies another veteran, another former Grand Slam champion, who has looked in fine shape both ahead of Paris and now that she has landed on Roland Garros's courts. "So if she says Australian Open, it's going to be the Australian Open".

"I'm sorry for my French, my teacher is on holiday", he said. "I'm going to try and give it my best". "Belief. Pojd." That last word, which is the Czech equivalent of "Come on!" and was spelled with a red heart instead of the "O", is often yelled by Kvitova to celebrate particularly good shots.

Less than six months after a knife attack at her home, two-time Wimbledon champion Kvitova was back competing, winning the first match of her comeback 6-3, 6-2 at Roland Garros against 86th-ranked Julia Boserup of the United States.

Nara actually broke Williams in the first part of the match, but the American quickly regained control.

Following a match during the French Open on May 31, Venus was asked about Serena's pregnancy during an interview with Eurosport. I took it one point at a time to stay calm. "We can use that experience and, yeah, hopefully I can use everything and have another good tournament here".

Russian Ekaterina Makarova, who upset world No. 1 Angelique Kerber in the first round on Sunday, could not follow up on her stunning performance. "But she knows exactly what it's like out there, and she's had a lot of success here".

Bernhard Langer wins Senior PGA for record 9th senior major
