29-year-old Sirigu started his career in Italy and joined the Parisians five years ago, in 2011. After playing 60 Serie A matches from 2009 to 2011, Sirigu became the first-choice goalkeeper at PSG for four years, playing 145 matches.

In five seasons at Parc des Princes, Sirigu has won four consecutive Ligue 1 titles, three Trophée des Champions, three Coupe de la Ligue, and two Coupe de France. Sirigu has played seventeen international matches, debuting in 2010.

Per the agreement between the clubs, PSG has not included an option for Sevilla to buy the player.

The victory was Muguruza’s first Grand Slam title, and improved her world ranking to second behind Williams in women’s tennis. She became Spain‘s first women’s Grand Slam champion since Arantxa Sánchez Vicario won the French Open in 1998.

Muguruza won the first set 7–5, breaking early in the set to grab a 3–2 lead. Williams was down 3–1 early in the second set; the Spaniard completed the set 6–4. For Williams with 22 Grand Slam titles, it was a second consecutive Grand Slam loss.

Muguruza and Williams played in last year’s Wimbledon final, with opposite results — Williams won. After the match, Muguruza said, “I can’t explain with words how this day means to me. You work all your life to get here”. Williams, appearing upset after the loss, thanked her coach and said they would “try again next year.”

In Williams’s first Grand Slam competition this year, she lost the Australian Open final to Angelique Kerber, two sets to one.

—Rafael Nadal

On Thursday, Nadal defeated Facundo Bagnis with his wrist anesthetized. With that victory, he became the eighth man in history to achieve 200 wins in Grand Slams. Nadal won his ninth Monte Carlo Masters title in April.

In the press conference, Nadal said, “It’s not broken but if I continue to play, my wrist will break in a few days”((fr)). Nadal said he felt wrist pain two weeks before he arrived at the French capital Paris. He also said, “This is one of the toughest press conferences of my career”.

The Spaniard, seeded number 4, also admitted he could not play with his forehand. He was scheduled to play against Marcel Granollers. Nadal has an 87% win record in Grand Slams winning 200 matches out of 230.

He concluded the press conference by saying, “I feel myself with the right motivation and the right energy to be back at Roland Garros [the French Open] the next couple of years[…] It’s a tournament that I love so much.”

Dozens of tax investigators raided Google’s offices in French capital Paris on Tuesday as part of a probe into the company’s alleged tax evasion.

The raid was conducted by investigators from the state financial prosecutor’s office assisted by 25 information technology (IT) experts, according to officials. “The investigation aims to verify whether Google Ireland Ltd has a permanent base in France” the prosecutor’s office said, “and if, by not declaring parts of its activities carried out in France, it failed its fiscal obligations[…]”.

Google, a subsidiary of Alphabet Inc., reports most of its sales in Ireland. Google claims most sales contracts are closed in its Dublin offices. If investigation finds sales are being concluded in other countries, Google may need to pay additional taxes in these countries.

In 2014 Google reported a total yearly revenue in France of €225.4 million with a profit of just €12.2 million, paying only €5 million in corporate tax according to the Financial Times. A Google spokesperson said the company is co-operating with French authorities and fully complies with French law.

According to Reuters, a source from the French finance ministry said French tax authorities are also separately pursuing Google for €1.6 billion in back taxes.
