French Open: Day 4 and football news

Was a rain-affected day 4 at Philip Chartier, Roland Garos, Paris.

Andy Murray bt Juan Ignacio Chela. The Argentinian (whose name, I am a fan of along with Juan Sebastian Veron, Juan Pablo Montoya, Juan Pablo Angel), on the back of a victory on the clay court of Houston, threatened briefly, taking the 2nd set. But the Scot came through reasonably comfortably in the end. The Scot now faces the Cypriot, Marcos Baghdatis in another tricky match for Murray. He beat Richard Gasquet in the first round, then Chela and now has Baghdatis.......phew, thats a tough draw.......

A-Rod, lost the 2nd set, but came through in 4 sets. 'Sweet heart' Ivanovic was kind of humiliated really, she lost 6-3, 6-0. Is there something with pretty-looking tennis players? They never seem to play consitent. She was the 2007 French Open champion. But now, is sadly on a downward curve. Anyway, Justin Henin looks to be well-placed before rain-gods obliged again. She was leading 6-3, 3-2. Big serving Isner powered his way through with 36 aces.......

Watch out for Almagro. Touted as the other Nadal by the Spanish press, he could be the surprise package this time. He is similar to Nadal in that he can grind the opponent to pieces. The difference, a major one at that , is that he is right handed. Also, he has a one-handed backhand.

Else where, Maurinho seems to be destined to become the Real Madrid coach. He has already started making his cocky statements. The latest one is something along these lines:

"If I become the coach of Madrid, I will not be the coach of a star-studded team. All the stars are at Inter Milan" !!! As much I a hate this guy's tactics, I love his press ocnferences.......Van Persie sinked Mehico with a brace. Looks to be in the form of his life now. Was good to see him score 2 and yet so frustrating to think what might have been had he been fit for Arsenal

United have officially announced the arrival of talented Mehican Striker....Hernandez. Nicknamed 'Chicharito', he is a hot favorite among the Mexicans. At the match between the Dynamos, I asked this Mexican dude, who is better Carlo Vela and Chicharito and he shouted, much to my disappointment CHICHARRRRRITO.......
