Novak Djokovic has won the 2016 French Open title in men’s singles while Garbine Muguruza surprised quite a few people as she beat Serena Williams in the final of women’s singles. Overall it was great tournament but men’s singles is getting a bit boring with Djokovic in totally different level to the rest while Nadal, Federer are heading towards end of their careers and Murray just not good enough to beat Djokovic.
Tennis season moves to grass court now and Wimbledon championship will start at the end of June with both Djokovic and Serena Williams favourite to win the singles title yet again. Until than its good bye from here and hope to see you again in Wimbledon.
