Re: Biggest surprise of French Open

A lot of surprises at the French, but Henman definitely although he's talented and a top player, this is clay we're talking about! So congratulations to him!

Henman, of course. Others are 'supposedly' clay court specialists.

Re: Biggest surprise of French Open

Henman~ especially the 2-matches where he came from 2sets to love down; very impressive!!
Kuerten~ how did he beat Federer? Obviously Guga's enormous heart can beat anyone on his day, but I really thought Roger had a shot at 2nd Slam this year in Paris!
Gaudio~ 2-five setters in Rd1 & Rd2 then kicks arse over Enquist, Hewitt, Nalbandian!!

Anastasia Myskina~ thrashes V Williams then destroys Capriati; hope the mysterious Russian can beat her compatriot tonight!

Has to be henman, he played with a lot of effort, it just wasn't good enough, however reaching the semi's are not something to be in spite about.

Nieminen- The lucky lefty of tennis.
Sampras- The hairy champion of tennis.
Ferrero- The mosquito of tennis.
Srichaphan- The Thai- ger of tennis.
Safin - The of tennis.
Bagdatis- The quotesman of tennis "my coach will watch, i will sleep with my girlfriend"
Kiefer- The naive guy, "yeh, me and seb are good friends"
Santoro- The double handed wizard of tennis.
Lopez- IS my hair right? IS my lipstick right?
Moya- The tatoo and muscles of tennis (although nadal kicks his ass in that department).
Tipsarevic- The tatoo of tennis, competing with moya.
Djokovic- Stole Jiri's surname

Sorry if I left out your favourite, just PM me to let me know-- thanks.
