Re: French Open could be saved at Roland Garros

The balls at RG will be different this year, not the same balls as the rest of the european clay season. Dunlop balls will be replaced by Babolats, hope they don't make bad balls for Nadal LOL!

I couldn't care less what happens to RG. They could take it away its slam status for all I care.

Re: French Open could be saved at Roland Garros

I don't think the world would ahve ended had it been moved. Only would have hurt the people so tied to the past. But I also don't see the reason to move it. Greedy organizers want it moved and their wishes should never be honored.

Re: French Open could be saved at Roland Garros

Roland Garros is the least important of the slams, so it wouldn't effect anyone if it was moved.

^^I don't visit the forum for three days and MTF grows colourful. Interesting.

For you maybe, but i think most players would rate it as second best(after wimbledon). US open has to be the worst grandslam.

No....Wimbledon is the best, then the US Open, then the Australian Open, then Roland Garros.

They should move the slam somewhere else, maybe Germany or Spain.

3 of my other favourites do well at it: Montanes, Federer and Soderling, but still don't care about the tournament and I hope its slam status is taken away soon. Awful slam.

Re: French Open could be saved at Roland Garros

The only awful thing about the FO is the crowd, the rest is enjoyable to watch.

I've already said my hatred of the French Open has nothing to do with Murray.....it's just a rubbish slam....I'm sure nobody will care if it's moved somewhere else. They should let another country have a go.....Germany...Spain...Poland or Italy for example....

No need to hate on RG because Mugray is a joke there. If he won RG, you'd sing a different tune. RG is the best slam, btw, clay and grass is real tennis, not the hard court nonsense the tour is plagued with.
