NADAL BEGINS FRENCH OPEN TITLE DEFENSE

0

PARIS: Defending champion Rafael Nadal begins his bid for a ninth French Open title on Monday out on the secondary Suzanne Lenglen Court after a controversial scheduling snub. Nadal, who has a phenomenal record of 59 wins and just one loss in Paris, comes into the tournament suffering his worst claycourt sequence in a decade. The top seed and world number one tackles US wildcard Robby Ginepri, the world number 279, who he beat in straight sets in the semifinals in Madrid nine years ago in their only other previous meeting.
