French Open 2015: Roger Federer, Maria Sharapova Ease Into 4th Round

PARIS (AP) One of Roger Federer’s 5-year-old twin daughters had her nose buried in a comic book. The other was glued to a mobile phone. Shame, really, that they didn’t look up, because the tennis their father wove on the French Open center court verged on art. The canvas for Federer’s strokes, the backhand as smooth as a cat’s paw and the forehand with crackle and pop, was...
