Where is the “normal water”? Is it allowed to have a pigeon on the court? Rafael Nadal will get to use the Champions League final ticket.

These are just a few of many points that were discussed at the French Open this week.

Where can I find ‘normal water?

It isn’t normal at Grand Slams! Is this normal? Is that normal?

Stan Wawrinka’s outburst might have drawn more attention from the umpire if the former champion hadn’t been referring to his bottle water.

The 37-year old was unhappy with the temperature of water offered to him in his first round match against Corentin Moutet from France.

During a changeover, the Swiss player complained to the umpire that his water was too cold.

What are the rules for pigeons

Ugo Humbert asks tennis’ rulemakers: Can you play when there’s a pigeon?

He lost his first match in five sets, but was distracted at the start of the fourth set by a pigeon.

“I would like to know the rule. Is it possible to play when there’s a pigeon in the court? Humbert requested a news conference.

“I was serving, and the pigeon wasn’t there. I looked at him so that he would stop. I refused to ask him to stop the match.

“I was hoping he would tell me that the pigeon wasn’t bothering you, but the pigeon was disturbing me, very close to me.

Can Nadal reach the Champions League final?

Rafael Nadal is a huge Real Madrid fan. He went to their Champions League semi-final second leg comeback against Manchester City. This was the reason he won over David Goffin at Madrid Open the following day.

Real will take on Liverpool in Saturday’s Paris final. This could pose a problem to Nadal who is bidding for the record-breaking 14th French Open title.

“Well, I’m here to play Roland Garros, more than any other, not? He said this earlier in the week, “But of course, my tickets are already”

Roland Garros is home to a statue of Nadal, a legend at the event. Many players credit him with inspiring them to play the game.

Moutet, the man who beat Wawrinka said that he used one of Nadal’s French Open tank tops to sleep as a child.

As a child, you need to look up to your idols. He was my inspiration because I was lefty,” the 23-year old, who will be playing Nadal on Wednesday, stated.

Raducanu is looking for a ‘legend’ to bring her luck.

Emma Raducanu won a tough battle against Linda Noskova in Czech, and she went to the sideline and gave a high-five to a man on the front row.

It wasn’t even a member her team. It was a friend of hers. It turned out to be a friend of hers who supported her during the unforgettable run to US Open glory.

The British number one laughed, “I don’t know him personally or his name but he was there from the first match at New York.”

He always sits in front row. He is a legend. It is amazing to have him around, it brings back so many happy memories.
