2013 French Open: Photos

While in Paris today, I had the privilege of stopping by Roland Garros to watch a day of the French Open. It’s the Round of 16 for both men and women and I was able to watch Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Maria Sharapova all advance to the quarterfinals.

Hope you enjoy!
