As your watching the French Open, try and help your own game by learning from the pro's.  During the next 2 weeks at Roland Garros expect to see longer points on the red clay.  Its always interesting for me to watch how players construct each point. 

With longer points being played you will start to see players wear down and change their shot selection, early in points or in matches they may seem patient, but often this will break down as the match goes on and EVEN THE PRO's will start to become impatient and go for shots they shouldn't causing unforced errors. 

See if you can identify patterns and opportunities while the points are going on and see if you can pick up anything for your own game.  Good luck and enjoy the French.
