Björkman Knocked Out of French Open

Swede Jonas Björkman was knocked out of the French Open tennis tournament by Spaniard Carlos Moya.

The unseeded Swede was ahead 5-2 in the opening set but lost the next four games. He broke serve for 6-all and led 5-3 in the tiebreaker before Moya swept the final four points, the last with a net cord winner.

”You know, I’m 35,” Björkman said. ”My shoulder just got more tired than it normally does.” The Swede went on to say, ”This is a great day. I obviously surprised myself to make the fourth round.”
