They are stepping up nicely this year. Even the Americans have some wins.

I cannot stand Djokovic
NEW YORK METS

I'm an American who loves clay tennis and the clay season...what is wrong with that picture?

Ironically, all of them will probably go out in 4R and also ironically, the one with the biggest chance of reaching QF is Monfils

I think Llodra has more chance against Gulbis than Monfils to beat Melzer and Davydenko....

French tennis looks to have great prospects on the guys side. Don't think France has to worry about having some top male players around in a few years. They have surely got a great DC team shaping up too.

Good surprise of Chardy!

Albert Costa forever +++ Tommy Haas +++ Ivo Karlovic +++ Peter Luczak


RAFA owns Fedclown ~~~ H2H record 14-7 -- ~~~ 3 different GS finals included
Byebye Fedjerk, your dominance period is over! Nadal will win like 10 more Slams!

I totally agree. Unfortunatly.
The french performances in RG are just good surprises. I don't think they will confirm after... I hope to be wrong of course, but it's always like that with the french players.

I keep thinking none of them is able to win a grand slam in the next years.

All we can do is to hope that a certain french youngster will wake up.......but i think it's sadly too late now.

Tsonga was two sets away from winning the Australian open.

Just sayin'.

Congrats to the French. Did not expect it.

The ATP deserves a better class of player, and I'm gonna give it to 'em - Djoker

Apparently the last time a Frenchman even won a Masters Series tournament was back in 2001 (Grosjean at Paris). Yikes.

I'm surprised Serra hasn't done better on tour. He has a pretty solid clay court game.
