The French Open is one of tennis’ biggest Grand Slam tournaments and all the Top Seeds are through to the 3rd round including Canadian’s #19th seed, Milos Roanic. He is actually the only player from North America left in the tourney since Andy Roddick lost in the first round to Nicolas Mahut, and John Isner lost to Paul-Henri Mathieu. However, the Americans can watch all the tennis they like on the Ladies side of the bracket as they have 4 players approaching the quarter finals.

Hey people!! So I have been doing karate for more than a year now and I wanna start doing gymnastics. You see karate costs a lot of money and my mum and dad have spent about $1,000 on me. Plus my older bro does karate too so that's even more money wasted. I used to like it but now it kinda sucks. My parents are going to let me try gymnastics for a few classes and then they will let me decide what to do. So what should I do?! All my friends and Youtubers do it and I like doing it too cos I can do lot's of things like cartwheel, splits, handstand, round off and so much more. I know this isn't cheerleading but it's close topic and I just need some help!!  Have a lovely day, Oki101  :/
