    Roland Garros II - Men's Doubles
    GRAND SLAM - Saturday (Day Fourteen) - Paris, France - Clay (Red)

    • For the second time, American duo Hugh James and Ralph Robinson met Jojo Mustard and Heath Davis of West CWLand in a Grand Slam final with the top seeded Americans looking to defend their title. With Davis and Mustard holding the wood over their opponents in recent times, the American pairing came out fiery early to break immediately to lead 1-0. Davis and Mustard, though, operate as if they are one person at times, and and quickly clawed back to be level at 1-1. The set continued in much the same fashion as the Americans at one point had the chance to serve for the set after breaking in the ninth game but were again thwarted by a fantastic smash from Davis as he reached back from over his head to secure the break. The high pressure set would be decided in a tiebreaker, and it was the Westerners who shot to an early lead of 4-2. But the defending champions kept coming, and a backhand lob into the doubles court from the smaller man James brought up two set points. They needed just one as Robinson hooked a serve straight down the "tee" to secure the first set tiebreaker 7-5

    Serving first in the second set, the second seeds were in a great deal of trouble early as Davis was broken after leading 40-15. The Americans began to play inspired tennis and drew a number of errors from the two-time Grand Slam champions and opened up a 5-1 lead. At 5-2 they served for the match, but were broken to keep the West CWLanders in with a sniff. But a sniff is all they got - a weak second serve was put away deep by Robinson to secure a second straight Roland Garros title for the Americans 7-6(5), 6-3.

    • Seeded players out: Heath Davis & Jojo Mustard.

    Roland Garros II - Men's Singles
    GRAND SLAM - Sunday (Day Fifteen) - Paris, France - Clay (Red)

    • For the third time in a week, World No. 2 Daniel Páez Blanco has withstood a storm to win in five sets - this time taking a second Roland Garros title with a victory over seventh seeded Hungarian József Boros. The Hungarian had more than his fair share of chances, but what cost him was his failure to serve under extreme pressure in the first two sets which saw him drop both to the second seed. That was always going to make things difficult, but the Hungarian was rewarded for not falling apart in the third set and taking it in a tiebreaker. In an overwhelmingly tense affair, Boros stuck with Blanco and ensured the title would be decided in a fifth set as he showed unbelievable resolve to stave off three break points in two service games to take the breaker 7-4. But eventually he had to run out of puff, and after being broken twice early in the fifth it all became too much for him - Blanco securing the title 7-5, 7-5, 6-7(5), 6-7(4), 6-1 as Boros hit a return long. While Blanco's physical ability robbed the fans of a fifth-set classic, it completed an amazing second week which has only added to his impressive aura on the clay.


    • Seeded players out: József Boros.

    Very disappointing. Really should have won that first set and ultimately the match. Thank goodness there's at least one grand slam and a chance for Mustard to go out a winner.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Yeah, not the most disasterous result but as #1 seed going out to a WC in the Semis burns a bit

    On the bright side, not many points to defend...

    There's still a heap of clay events to come anyway.
