Roland Garros 2011: Rafa wins his 10th GS, equaling Borg's record of 6 RG titles!!!

Since you are all too scared to step up to the plate, I'm taking the responsibility of opening the RG thread.


Just so you know I was the one who opened the RG 2009 thread.

Something to psyche everyone up

Nadal in the house
Here he is - five-time champion Rafael Nadal is back at Roland Garros! The Majorcan world no.1 was out on Suzanne Lenglen court on Thursday, enjoying a hit-out with Frenchman Gilles Simon. Rafa's back seemed to be playing him up a little, and he was less than satisfied with the way he was hitting the ball, but there should be no cause for alarm amongst his legion of fans.
Video from Facebook


Rafa looking really happy and energetic in the beginning of that video.

Maybe Rafa's backhand seemed to be playing him up a little

Yep sadly we do.

But still I'm saying W, maybe that will help.
I mean he did win MC and Barcelona after all.
And he won RG on one leg, was it in 2007?
