FRENCH OPEN CONCLUDES


While you were playing tennis this weekend at the Slam, the French Open concluded with several noteworthy outcomes. Sure, Iga Świątek continued her dominance in women's singles and Novak Djokovic definitively raced to the top of the all-time grand-slam titles with his win, but you may have also noticed a familiar face on the podium: Dallas resident and former Texas A&M Player, Austin Krajicek won the Men's Doubles Championship and with it reached the ranking of #1 in the world in men's doubles. WOW. Read about Austin's love of Texas and his go-to barbeque order in the latest issue of Inside Tennis magazine.


Go out there and have fun and be excellent to each other!
