When Stiles Stilinksi steps foot onto Court 8 at Roland Garros, it's everything he's been dreaming of for the last nine years, and everything his life has been building towards since the first time he held a tennis racquet in his hands fourteen years ago.
It's kinda funny, Stiles thinks, that his first game in a Grand Slam (that's right, he's playing in a freaking Grand Slam) is against a fellow American. Hell, he's a fellow Californian. Derek Hale is slightly taller than him, his face is stubbled and just as grumpy in real life as he's seen in numerous photos and video coverage. And yeah, in any other circumstance Stiles might admit that the stubble and general sense of 'stay the hell away from me' totally works for him. But right now it's just intimidating as fuck.
When Roger gets up from his seat in the pre-match press conference, he can only wonder whose idea it was to introduce a boxing-like stare down at Grand Slams. Possibly the youngsters around Zverev and Kyrgios. Or Boris.
Probably some Americans, though.
He doesn’t have to wonder whose idea it was to test that new system on him and Rafa because it has been the Spaniard himself.

After a long time spent on the job, Eddie and Venom go out for a very early/late breakfast- and some fun ;)

This is Liam’s first Grand Slam. He’s eighteen, he’s a wildcard, and he has a thirst to prove himself even if he can't quite believe he's in Australia. Backed by world famous coach Louis Tomlinson, Liam feels like his chances are pretty good.
Then he remembers that twenty-two year old Zayn Malik is back from injury to be a part of the tournament. Suddenly, Liam’s odds don’t seem so good anymore.

John and Sherlock are professional tennis players and it’s Wimbledon. One is a broken almost was at the end of his career, the other an arrogant rising star tipped for greatness. It should have been a straightforward tournament. It really should have been. How were they to know that a chance encounter would change everything?

I love sports AUs!!! This was one was interesting, because unlike the prior tennis AUs I've read, the pairing here weren't (necessarily) rivals. I also had no idea that no Englishman had won Wimbledon since the 30s (until Andy Murray in 2013). I liked a more sexual Sherlock here, I'm still BAFFLED why so many (okay, I've only read half a dozen) Sherlock AUs feel the need to re-write the "married to my work" scene from the pilot, and I liked that John's ascension through rankings was believable. My only real critiques of the fic is a heavy use of "The Frenchman" as an epitaph in the beginning of the fic and I didn't feel like Moriarty's hate on for Sherlock was fully-fleshed. The tennis, however, was brilliant.
