Roland Garros 2013

IMG_7936

As if by magic, the change of month ushered in a completely different climate.  between Friday and Saturday, it felt like Paris transformed.

I spent my Saturday, June 1st at the grounds of Roland Garros, one of the four Grand Slams of the tennis world and a huge cultural happening in France.  It was great fun! Although the sun flirted with us all day and the wind teased and tousled here and there it was beautiful to be outside and we were so lucky to have some amazing seats in one of the smaller courts making the game very much within reach.

We saw two very intense games, one women’s and one men’s. In both, the underdog put up quite a fight making for a rather long and on-edge battle.  The audience was largely Swiss with plenty of red flags fluttering in the breeze and many encouraging cries supporting the players.  Even Roger Federer’s father was in the audience cheering his Swiss comrades!  Unfortunately for them, the Swiss Stefanie Voegele was defeated by the Russian Maria Kirilenko while the swift Swiss Stanislas Wawrinka took the game vs Jerzy Janowicz whose serves were massively his downfall.

What a fun way to spend a Saturday!  With the US Open and Roland Garros under my belt, I have Wimbeldon and the Australian Open to tackle next!
