Check out the video timafi posted:

Looks great, lots of green space, not cramped like the current location, and near a historic site.

Eurodisney and the other site in Sarcelles I think are just a no-no.

Re: French Open could be saved at Roland Garros

Looks like it will be at RG, they agreed to expand the current venue.

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".

So they're staying at the Bois and will expand up to 13.5 hectares.

Re: French Open could be saved at Roland Garros

That's a great move IMO. I thought they would've gone for Versailles.

Re: French Open could be saved at Roland Garros

the only ANSWER is change the french open to FAST INDOOR CARPET!!!!!!!!!!!!!

God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God

Good news that it's staying at RG.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).
