Roland Garros starts May 24, and some players are already there, preparing for the second Grand Slam of the season.
Seven-time Grand Slam champion Venus Williams, who will try to win her first French Open title, was seen training for the greatest claycourt tournament. Her sister Serena Williams, who won the event in 2002, was also busy trying to finally adapt to clay this season, with the help of father Richard.
Jelena Jankovic was seen practicing with coach Ricardo Sanchez, but as you may have heard, she will most probably change her coach if she doesn’t make a good result at the French Open. Just to remind you, earlier this year Jankovic fired conditioning coach Pat Etcheberry.
JJ is exceptional on clay, but having in mind her recent problems with form and conidence, I don’t expect her to claim her first Grand Slam title this time.
Also spotted was Amelie Mauresmo, who still hasn’t got past the quarterfinals at her home Grand Slam.
