The 2012 French Open (aka Roland Garros) is coming. The tennis tournament is happening from May 22 to June 10.

My sketch today is inspired by Rafael Nadal, the king of clay.

What Easter means to me is spring and warm weather.  Today is very mild in the Northeast.  And warm weather means tennis.  Here is my sketch of a player getting ready to serve the ball. Happy Easter!

Indian Wells recently ended with Jelena Jankovic winning on the women’s side, beating the talented 19-year-old Danish, Caroline Wozniacki. I am pleased in Jankovic’s victory, for she had been ranked #1 in the world, and yet never won a championship.

As for her countrywoman, Ivanovic, she is unable to live up to her win since the French Open, a couple of years ago. The problem is her inconsistent serve.

I am building a series of tennis panels in hopes to illustrate how a serve in tennis. The artwork I created (above) is of course, the first step – the preparation stance.

I am looking forward to the next Grand slam event which is Roland Garros, aka The French Open. The dates for that tournament are from May 23 – June 6, 2010.

Are there any tennis fans in this side of the blogosphere? Who are you a fan of to win the next major?
