It's true: Andy didn't win the U.S. Open this year, but he still stuck to what he's been saying all along and has decided to retire from the sport.

He's the only American man who has won a grand slam singles title, but he lost Wednesday in the fourth round of the U.S. Open

Rafael Nadal Wins French Open!

Filed under: Rafael NadalTennis

Nadal French Victory

Congrats, Rafael Nadal!

He has won a record SEVEN French Open titles!

Unfortunately for Novak Djokovic, the world's No. 1 seated player, he would not become the first man since 1969 to hold all four grand slams.

Rain was a HUGE factor in both the win and loss for the two players, but it sounds like Nadal handled it the best!

The downpour could not stop the tennis star Spaniard, as he defeated his enemy with a 6-4 6-3 2-6 7-5 victory!

Way to go, Rafael! Great job!

Filed under: Serena WilliamsSad SadVenus WilliamsTennis

Venus Out 2012

The 2012 French Open has not been kind to the Williams sisters, as now Venus has joined Serena in getting booted from the competition early on!

And get this: It's just the fifth time in 43 Grand Slam tournaments that neither Williams sister reached the quarterfinals.

So this is a rare thing to have happened!

Venus lost 6-2, 6-3 to No. 3 Agniezska Radwansa of Poland in the second round, just one day after Serena lost to Virginie Razzano of France.

This sucks, but we're sure you guys aren't done yet — so there's always the next tournament!

Keep your heads up!
