Venus overcomes rough patch

Instead, it was a player with a losing record and ranked 110th who briefly threatened the run of Sister Slams on Thursday in the French Open's second round. Williams got her act together in time to beat Evie Dominikovic 6-3, 4-6, 6-2.

Nine U.S. women reached the third round, but just two of 13 American men did: Andre Agassi and Vince Spadea, who's never won a tournament. Two U.S. men exited, with No. 24 James Blake eliminated by Ivan Ljubicic in a match suspended the night before because of darkness. Todd Martin lost to No. 25 Tim Henman.

PARIS -- Andre Agassi improved to 10-0 in major events this year by beating No. 26 Xavier Malisse 6-4, 7-5, 7-5 on Friday at the French Open. The stylish Malisse lost despite hitting 13 aces and 55 winners

At 33, Agassi's the tournament's oldest entrant. And just like a year ago, he's the only U.S. man in the round of 16.

Well Tim is definatly doing better than i thought as clay hasnt always been his best surface...
I'm watching the match on TV and its one set all...If Tim gets the win it will most probably be his best win to date so far,but lets not get too over confident ...!

It looks like the Wiliam Sisters can be beaten, looks like their papa was wrong about nobody can beat them.

Today at the French Open, Agassi was upset by Coria the youngster. This opens the door for a lot of people, the two top seeds are now gone, maybe it is Ferror's time.

The albert Costa Tommy Rebredo match was great, i enjoyed watching every second of it, the first two sets Costa was out of it, it seemed like he didnt want to be out there, and then he showed so much heart coming back from that match that is what a true champion does right there, and now he is contention for his second straight french open.

The Juan Carlos Ferrero and Gonzalex match was great both of these quaterfinals were great both lasting five sets. Hope this type of action contiunes, Ferrero and Gonzalez showed people what true clay courters are all about. Great match now i am looking forward to a Ferrero-Costa match in the semis. I will look for ferrero to get some revenage in this match after lossing to Costa in the finals last year.

I watched the ENTIRE match today...wow it was awesome! I was rooting for gonzales the whole time because I love how wide open his game is...I like to see players take chances with crazy shots. The ferrero/costa match should be outstanding...I cant wait!

Little-known Martin Verkerk's dream run at the French Open continued on Friday as he stormed into a final with another shock win.

The world number 46 outplayed claycourt expert Guillermo Coria in Paris, winning 7-6 6-4 7-6 to set up a clash with either Juan Carlos Ferrero or Albert Costa.

Coria would have feared the Dutchman's huge serve going into the match, but that was far from his only weapon.

He ground down the Argentine in the baseline rallies and fully deserved his victory.
