From The Editor

What's your favorite storyline at Roland Garros this year? Rafa looking to equal Borg's record of four straight singles crowns? Roger's quest to complete a career Grand Slam... if only he can solve the Rafa Riddle? Or perhaps it's the emotional farewell of three-time champion Guga Kuerten?

Just as Roland Garros 2008 is packed with compelling storylines, so too is our latest issue of DEUCE, including a look at what makes Nadal clay's ultimate warrior. There is a fitting tribute to Kuerten, who also opens his private photo album to fans.

We sit down with Jarkko Nieminen and his wife Anu, the respective No. 1 Finnish tennis and badminton players. They have never celebrated a wedding anniversary together as they follow their tours.

And be sure to check out the unique pictorial feature from Dubai. You've never seen tennis images like these!

As always, I welcome your comments emailed to content@atpworldtour.com.

Enjoy!
