Andy Murray recalls stabbing of Monica Seles after French Open security breach — Andy Murray and João Sousa step on to court for the second round of the 2015 French Open on Thursdayand will fear each other's weapons above any that might be lurking in the crowd. They are, after all, professional athletes who entrust their security to those who are paid for that task but who were found sadly wanting here this week.

Eugenie Bouchard exits French Open at hands of Kristina Mladenovic — The sixth seed, Eugenie Bouchard, a semi-finalist at the French Open last year on her way to the Wimbledon final, chose the wrong day to switch off against the clay specialist Kristina Mladenovic and experienced the pain of first-round defeat for the first time .

French Open 2015: Britain’s Aljaz Bedene spirited in defeat — Family and friends, the curious and a few stragglers, crammed into Court No5 on the first Monday of the French Open to see if the fuss about Great Britain's latest tennis acquisition, Aljaz Bedene - once of Slovenia and latterly of Welwyn Garden City - was warranted. It just about was.

Andy Murray joined by Kyle Edmund in French Open second round — If British tennis is heading ever so cautiously in the right direction, the pilot and guiding light for the foreseeable future remains the man who four years ago got lost on the Paris Métro en route to dinner with his mother.

Rafael Nadal must silence French Open fans and doubters in first round — Roger Federer's vow on Monday to continue playing tennis until after the 2016 Olympics in Rio thrilled his millions of followers, of course - but there is lingering doubt about the longevity of the Swiss's enduring rival, Rafael Nadal.

Amélie Mauresmo: I am not reliving my past through Andy Murray — Amélie Mauresmo never enjoyed Roland Garros as much as her talent deserved. From the day she drew inspiration from Yannick Noah's win in 1983, as a young girl watching from her home in Saint-Germain-en-Laye, just north of Paris, and all through her serial disappointments in front of her home crowd over 15 years, the French Open represented a prize too far.

French Open court invader disturbs Roger Federer’s post-win glow — The opening day of the French Open was all sunshine and summer roses until a young man armed, thankfully, with nothing more threatening than a mobile phone camera, invaded Court Philippe Chatrier to have his photograph taken alongside Roger Federer - then strolled from the scene of his misdemeanour as if he owned the place.

Roger Federer survives Wimbledon scare by overcoming Alejandro Falla — Roger Federer flirted with mortality at Wimbledon today when he came perilously close to an unthinkable first-round defeat by the unheralded Colombian clay-courter Alejandro Falla. It surely would have ranked as the biggest upset in tennis history - and suddenly the defending champion looks vulnerable in this tournament.

Andy Murray starts French Open bid against qualifier Facundo Argüello — Andy Murray begins his eighth French Open with what should be an uncomplicated workout against the Argentinian lucky loser Facundo Argüello on Monday. However, he may be mildly distracted by the growing suspicion this could be his last major campaign with his coach, Amélie Mauresmo.

Amélie Mauresmo has restored Andy Murray’s self-belief, says Marion Bartoli — Marion Bartoli knows Amélie Mauresmo even better than Andy Murray does, and she sees nothing but good in what has been a groundbreaking partnership for the French coach and the world No3, who is embracing his new-found feminism with the zeal of a convert. Not that there is a misogynous bone in Murray's battle-hardened body.
