My son.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Gasquet has the biggest chance imo.

You've got to feel for Simon with that kind of draw.

Anyway Gasquet.

Re: Who will be "The Frenchman Of The Week™"?

Murray will beat Chardy easily, Clownetteau will probably be beaten by Wawrinka.
So that leaves Gascoke who could reach QFs against Murray, but that's it.

So...Gascoke it is.

ANDY MURRAY

SLAMS: 3 WINS, 8 finals, 9 semi-finals, 7 quarter-finals...
MASTERS: 12 WINS, 5 finals, 13 semi-finals, 18 quarter-finals...
WTF: 3 semi-finals...
OTHER: Olympic gold and silver medals, Davis Cup champion...
MATCH WIN/LOSS: 592-171...
TITLES: 38 and counting...

He's only got Berrer and Clowndasco ahead of him.
Of course, I hope he loses to Berrer.

Nobody.
The frenchmen never succeeded in big tournaments in the last decade bar some exceptions(Grosjean and Tsonga) and i see absolutely no reason for it to change especially with the top 4 being in good form at the moment.

obviously you doesn't seem to like Gasquet, I don't know why he pulled out a good win against misha.
personally Murray is one of my fav players because he is unconventional and tactically brilliant.
