Tennis: Novak has no doubts about Agassi

Vandeweghe, who has struggled in this event, is coming off an Australian Open semifinal appearance and is playing her best clay-court tennis ever (which still isn't great, but it's better).

Nadal could face Djokovic, the defending champion at Roland Garros, in the semifinals.

Djokovic will play Spain's Marcel Granollers in round one and has been placed in the same half of the draw as title favourite Rafael Nadal.

"I mean, their level of tennis that they have performed is quite fantastic".

"Tennis has changed in the last 15 years. since they slowed down surfaces and there is not much difference in speeds of the surfaces", said Patrick Mouratoglou, Williams' coach. The 18-time Grand Slam victor is trying to preserve his longevity and is skipping both the French Open and the clay court season.

Hassan Rouhani wins second term as Iran president
Rouhani is seen as relatively moderate in Iran, while Raisi was considered to be a more hard-line conservative candidate. He is close to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran's supreme leader, who stopped short of endorsing anyone in the election.

Djokovic announced last week that he had added former world No. 1 Agassi as a coach on a temporary basis, starting at the French Open, which begins Sunday. He was then beaten in the first round at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics, reached the final of the U.S. Open, and lost early again at the Australian Open.

But speaking at a news conference after the French Open draw was made, Murray said he was confident he would be fit and firing in time for his opening match on Monday.

If the seedings work out, 2016 runner-up Murray, who is reportedly suffering from an illness, would face Japan's Kei Nishikori in the last eight.

"It's an unbelievable feeling to be back and to look at this trophy".

Having also split with Boris Becker late past year, Djokovic has suggested he was looking for someone of a similar profile and confirmed last Sunday that he would work with Agassi on a trial basis. And in the latest period where I was not as successful and where I received a lot of criticism from many sides, he was one of the people, few people that was actually standing on my side and supporting me.

Rep. Bass Statement on Trump's "Stop Deciding To Be Poor" Budget
Republicans are under pressure to deliver on promised tax cuts , the cornerstone of the Trump administration's economic agenda. To explain why baseline budgeting needs to be retired, Mulvaney used the example of a program that cost $100 previous year .

Hence something bold and completely different: Earlier this month he excused his entire coaching staff and later announced he will be advised during his French Open title defense by eight-time major victor Andre Agassi.

World number one Andy Murray, who has been struggling this season, will play Russian Andrey Kuznetsov and faces a potential third-round with either claycourt specialist Nicolas Almagro or Argentine Juan Martin Del Potro. Before that, he faces a potential hard match-up against Juan Martin del Potro in the third round if the Argentine player recovers in time from shoulder and back problems.

Defending champion Garbine Muguruza was handed a tricky first round as she will take on the 2010 champion, Italian Francesca Schiavone.

Among the other favorites, third-seeded Simona Halep will be up against Jana Cepelova in the first round if her right ankle injury does not prevent her from playing.

The names missing from the French Open field are as noteworthy as can be: Roger Federer, Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova. Her ranking is not high enough for direct entry.
