Which French player could win RG in the future ?

"I asked a bloke in the front row if he liked the serve-and-volley stuff," said Rafter. "He said he did but asked if he was going to get to see any rallies. 'Not today, mate,' I told him."

Monfils. Give him about four or five years.

Talk to the hand because the ears don't hear you.

Re: Which French player could win RG in the future ?

I would say Gasquet and Mathieu have the best chance beeing as clay is their favorite surface. Monfils seems to be just another big server and we all know that isn't enough to win RG.

Re: Which French player could win RG in the future ?

I'd go for Monfils. Just leave him some years to get some more experience. Don't forget he's won the junior title last year. He's got the talent, the motivation, and that special quality that nothing scares him! Just hope he'll be regular in his progression!

Best of LUCK to ALL my Faves in 2015

I also voted for Monfils. I love his way of playing, and he can become really good one day!

Sorry Frenchies, but I don't see any of the aforementioned players win Roland Garros!

17 (yes, yes, yes!) Slams! And counting....

I only see Monfils... Although I don't really believe in him, nobody else among French players would be able to carry out such an exploit.

Hey, no need to say you're sorry. You're only expressing your opinion, which is your right.
