Bracket Busters

Once the seeds start playing each other, it's hard to characterize too many matches as "upsets," but there were still a few surprising results from the weekend that may throw the brackets askew.  On Saturday, 20th seeded Richard Gasquet pulled a minor upset over 15th seeded Kevin Anderson, while unseeded Jeremy Chardy upended 17th seeded David Goffin.  On the women's side, 17th seeded Sara Errani knocked out 10th seeded Andrea Petkovic and 23rd seeded Timea Bacsinzky stayed hot and beat 16th seeded Madison Keys.  On Sunday, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga provided the only surprising result, sending 4th seeded Tomas Berdych home.


The Big Five-O

With Saturday's win over Azarenka, Serena Williams hit a major milestone.  She has become the very first woman in the Open Era to win at least 50 matches at each of the four Grand Slam tournaments.  But her win definitely wasn't without drama…


"Don't wave your hand at me…"

After dropping the first set, Serena began to right the ship with better play in the second.  Then, near the end of the second set, a late out call—that didn't seem to affect Serena's shot—was overturned and the point was to be replayed.  Azarenka protested the questionable ruling and the two players had words briefly, ending with Azarenka waving her hand at the American.  Serena then appeared to reply by saying "Don't wave your hand at me."  During her press conference, Azarenka told reporters that she was so upset that she had broken a chair in the locker room, but made it clear that she and Serena remain friendly off court.


American Rising?
Jack Sock has bounced on and off of American tennis fans' radar.  He's been the "next big thing" and the "next big disappointment," seemingly all in the space of a week.  Now, with his third round win over Borna Coric, Sock (at 22 years and 8 months old) has become the youngest American into the French Open fourth round since Pete Sampras (at 21 years and 9 months) did it in 1993. Sock is also one of only five American men to make it to the fourth round since 2003.  Unfortunately, he'll have a tough job in his next match against defending champion Rafael Nadal.


A Chilly Night In Paris

Roger Federer and Gael Monfils weren't able to complete the match they began on Sunday and play was suspended at one-set apiece.  Temperatures had remained cool during the day and the skies were cloudy with periodic rain coming through.  The evening cooled off even more, prompting Monfils to apparently request a blanket to use during changeovers.
