French Open day 11 recap: Rain, Instagram and Murray

No matches today for the eleventh day of the Roland Garros 2019; the rain hammered Paris all day, ruining the floods of the organizers, who had to move the entire schedule to Thursday. Once again it is hoped that the works for the retractable roof on Court Philippe Chatrier will end up the most taken for the next edition of the tournament.

Gabriela Sabatini received a special award during the second week of the French Open. The former Argentinian player, talking about Argentinian tennis, said something about the loneliness of a tennis player's life: "To be a professional tennis player you have to remain alone for a long time, and this is a more difficult choice to make for a woman than for a man.

And even more difficult to be carried out for a father, who is probably more inclined to choose a different path for his daughter”. Eugenie Bouchard protagonist in Paris of an Instagram post turned viral, in which she made a change of shirts in front of a fan.

By now the Canadian's career seems more focused on social and fashion than on tennis courts, and the results talk for themselves ... Adriano Panatta is never banal in his statements. This is what the former Roland Garros winner said about the sedentary lifestyle of younger generations: "We need to promote physical exercise and play at all levels, because we are growing a generation of small sedentary younger, too often overweight".

Now it's official: Andy Murray will be back playing tennis! For now only in the men's doubles, together with Feliciano Lopez, starting from the Queen's: "I'm not ready to go back to play men's singles, but I've been without pain for a few months.

I've made good progress in training and this is the next step on the way back in the circuit!" Tomorrow we hope for a day without rain, where finally our beloved champions can play the last quarter-final matches.
