Here is the official website of the 2016 French Open (1891). After the first week, the big news in the men's side is that Roger Federer withdrew before the tournament started, and a genuinely devastated Rafael Nadal had to pull out with a wrist injury after his third-round victory. "Rafael Nadal Pulls Out of French Open with Wrist Injury" on bbc.com "This is a tough moment, and the toughest press conference I have ever had to give, but it is not the end," Nadal said. At this point, we're in the Round of 16, and aside from the obvious Djokovic, both Andy Murray and Serena Williams had terrific first weeks. Williams has a chance to tie Steffi Graf's Open-Era Grand-Slam Singles Titles at 22, and Djokovic is gunning for the only major that has eluded his otherwise-illustrious career - this title would mean a *lot* to both of them. Williams, in particular, positively mowed down her opponents in her first two matches, before showing her resiliency in the third round. And let's not forget defending champion Stanislas Wawrinka, who - with several other top-flight players including Murray and Kei Nishikori - hungrily await Novak Djokovic on the other half of the draw, an obvious problem is that they have a much tougher path to the championship: Djokovic will almost surely make it to the finals this year, and fatigue may be a lethal issue for his opponent.
