Could This Be The Year...

...that Rafa plays his first 5-set match at Roland Garros? Right now, his is not inspiring in me alot of confidence. There's Rome and Madrid next before RG, right? So, he has two more tournies to get back in the clay groove. I really, really, hope he does. I want so badly for him to tie Borg's consecutive record.

Fed is the one that needs to get back in the clay groove.

Re: Could This Be The Year...

Has Nadal ever been extended to 4 besides the final?

I guess Roddick must be the greatest player to ever play the game.

Should have remembered the Federer semis but I had no clue Grosjean took him to 4.

Re: Could This Be The Year...

Oh, neither did I. Know that Grosjean took Rafa to a 4 set, I mean.

Confidence! And there is plenty of time left before RG for him to do that.
