Rafael Nadal continues to show why he is the "King of Clay". The world number extended his dominance at Roland Garros with a 3-6, 7-5, 6-2, 6-4 victory over his rival Novak Djokovic to claim his fifth consecutive French Open title - and a record ninth overall. Djokovic was seeking to become just the eighth man to complete the career Grand Slam. The world number two was the bookmakers' favorite going into the tournament based on his recent success against Nadal (four straight including the finals at Rome) as well as Nadal's poor results - for him - on clay leading up to the French Open. The Serbian seemed well on his way after...

New York City FC have confirmed the signing of Spain and Atletico Madrid striker David Villa to a three-year deal. The deal marks the club's first signing since their official announcement as an expansion club last year by Major League Soccer. The 32-year old Villa is fresh off a La Liga title-winning season with Atletico Madrid with 13 goals scored in 36 appearances. He also helped them reach the UEFA Champions League final where they lost to city rivals Real Madrid in extra-time. He has also played for Spanish clubs, Sporting Dijon, Real Zaragoza, Valencia and Barcelona during his playing career. Villa is also Spain's all-time...

Swiss fourth seed Roger Federer was defeated by Latvian Ernests Gulbis in the fouth round 6-7(5), 7-6(3), 6-2, 4-6, 6-3 of the French Open yesterday - his earliest defeat at the tournament in a decade. Federer, the 2009 champion, was two points away from taking a two-sets to love lead over  Gulbis at one point. But Gulbis (ranked 17th in the world) hung tough. He served big, blasted away at his groundstrokes, and showed some lovely touches with several drop shots. Meanwhile it was a sloppy match for the 17 Grand Slam champion who made an unusually high number of unforced errors throughout the match. Gulbis now finds himself in his...

Another top women's side is out of the 2014 French Open. This time it's third-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland, who fell to unseeded Ajla Tomljanovic of Croatia in the third round 6-4, 6-4. Radwanska's loss means that for the first time in Open era the top three seeds in the women's draw have failed to reach the fourth round of a Grand Slam. Many thought that the Pole, who reached the semifinals of the Australian Open, would be one of the players to benefit from the upsets of Serena Williams and Li Na. However she played poorly against Tomljanovic, and the 21-year old (ranked 72 in the world) made her pay. Another top ten...

When the French Open women's draw was released last week, many had the Williams sisters meeting in the third round. Perhaps both Venus and Serena were looking ahead to that meeting when they took the court today. Instead both are now out of the French Open, thanks to the play of two young upstarts. Venus Williams was first on court on a chilly day in Paris to face 19-year old Anna Karolina Schmiedlova of Slovakia, ranked 56 in the world. The 33-year old American won the first set comfortably, but failed to put away the teenager who fought back to win the next two sets for a 2-6, 6-3, 6-4 upset of the 29th seed. Serena's...

One day after 2014 Australian Open men's champion Stan Wawrinka fell out of the French Open in the first round, the women's champion followed suit. China's Li Na, the second seed at Roland Garros, fell to local favorite Kristina Mladenovic 7-5, 3-6, 6-1. The 21-year old  Mladenovic, ranked 103rd in the world, will next face American Alison Riske in the second round. The Chinese, admitted that she handed the victory to her opponent in the third seed, thanks to her poor performance. This is the first time in tennis that both men's and women's Grand Slam champions have been knocked out in the first round of the following...

    Australian Open champion Stan Wawrinka is out of the 2014 French Open following a shocking upset by Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain in four sets (6-4, 5-7, 6-2, 6-0) on Court Philippe Chatrier. What looked like a routine match early in the first set, turned into a nightmare for the men's third seed, as Lopez recovered from a 3-1 deficit to claim the first set. He pulled level in the second set, but won just two more games in the match - including a bagel in the fourth set. The damp conditions and heavy clay surface in Paris did not help the Swiss, who committed 62 unforced errors in the match and was outplayed...
