Tennis/Roland-Garros - Nadal rejoint Wawrinka en finale

Wawrinka aurait pu se faciliter la tâche en saisissant ses occasions dans les deux manches qu'il a perdues. Mais dans la foulée, il a repris "blanc" le service du Croate, donnant l'impression qu'il faisait ce qu'il voulait sur le court. Ce match constituera la revanche de l'année dernière, lorsque l'Ecossais l'avait emporté en demi-finale face au Vaudois (6-4 6-2 4-6 6-2).

Lloris assume sa boulette — Équipe de France

Mais Lloris, double coupable d'une relance ratée au pied et d'une sortie à plus de 20 mètres de ses cages, a offert malgré lui les trois points de la victoire à Ola Toivonen qui ne s'est pas privé de marquer dans le but vide (2-1). Tout aussi malhonnête de n'affecter cette responsabilité qu'à Hugo Lloris , tant la bande de Deschamps a manqué de souffle, d'idées, d'assurance et de tranchant pour assurer l'essentiel face à des Suédois bien loin d'être des cadors.
