Re: Roland Garros to lose French GS?

Will they get the Coup de Mickey Mouse for winning if it's at Euro Disney.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Roland Garros to lose French GS?

In regards to Federer's lists, only 1 person has pointed out he is head of the players union.

I'd imagine whenever a player has a complaint about a major tournament it is delivered via Federer, but cleary the facilities at the FO are worse than the other 3, so thus more complaints from everybody, and you can probably include Nadal and Djokovic in that. (It was toooooooo fast, playing like a HC!!)

French Open might be saved at Roland Garros?

The French Tennis Federation (FFT) has recently been granted use of the Jean Bouin stadium, providing space for 17 courts next to Roland Garros.

Re: French Open could be saved at Roland Garros

What an outrage and a slap in the GOAT's face. He should totally boycott RG 2011 to show his indignation.

French players and some other important ones we won't mention have been lobbying Gachassin hard to stay.I love Gachassin;he is a rugby legend and understands sports and tennis and he communicates well with the French players unlike that asshole Bimes

to finish I would like to say: I told you so

If one of Trump's racist domestic terrorist THUGS tries to stop you from voting, STAY in line, take their picture, call the police and call 1-866-OUR-VOTE. Spanish: 866-Ve-Y-Vota. Asian Languages: 866-API-Vote. Lawyers will be ready.

I think he would have, his legacy was cemented at RG. I would think if I were Federer that his 2009 RG would only be second to his 2003 wimbledon vicotry.

Re: French Open could be saved at Roland Garros

Tennis fans are too conservative! The French Open needs to grow and be modernized.

Leave the strict traditions to Wimbledon.

Good that they can expand the venue and keep it in the same area.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
