Sad to see French tennis slow down again. For my part, I'm worried that there really isn't any Spanish kid looking hot enough to replace the present Armada, and I'm not talking about replacing Nadal -that's a once-in-a-lifetime event-, simply replacing Ferrer/Ferrero/Verdasco. Boluda looked fine some time ago, but of late seems to have petered out.
Oh come on,don't make us cry!
Even if you don't have a champion of Nadal's caliber in the future,you'll still have guys like Costa or Bruguera capable of winning the FO every year,which is something some big tennis countries would already dream of.
Even before Nadal,the spanish were often winning GSs whereas the french ,despite having much more registered tennis players than Spain,haven't won a GS for almost 30 years now(male players,i mean) and have won only 2 Master Series in the last decade.
So i were a spanish fan, i certainly wouldn't complain,even if the next years don't turn out to be as successful as they've been in the last 15 years.
Even the Boluda guy you are talking about will probably turn out to be a better player than any of the current french player lol.
