Donald Young of the U.S. battled varied micro-climates of heat, wind, rain and the all-weather tenacity of Spain's David Ferrer before falling 5-7, 6-3, 4-6, 6-3, 13-11 in a 4-hour, 27-minute epic Monday in the first round of the French Open. "It's a little rough right now to put into words," Young told ESPN.com. "I'm sure I'll look back on it and be pretty happy with the effort, upset with the loss, but all losses aren't equal if you get something out of it." He'll be back for doubles Tuesday with partner Santiago Gonzalez of Mexico.

"It's not about tennis right now," Steve Johnson of the U.S. said after an emotional French Open first-round win that spanned two days. Johnson's father, respected southern California-based coach Steve Johnson Sr., died suddenly earlier this month. "He was such a big part of my tennis life," said Johnson, who wiped away tears as he spoke to reporters. His 6-3, 6-3, 6-7 (4), 6-7 (3), 6-3 marathon over Japan's Yuichi Sugita was suspended in the fourth set Sunday due to darkness. "At the end of the third set yesterday, the emotions hit me pretty hard," said Johnson, 27, a two-time NCAA singles champion at the University of Southern California and 2016 Olympic doubles bronze medalist with Jack Sock. "I was lucky to kind of have the night to figure it out."
