I find that hard to believe.

Where is the proof?

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".

It was on the RG website. Maybe some professional rating/polling organization gave them that information.

Re: 3 billion TV viewers for Roland Garros !!!

Well is that count is an estimate over the whole fortnight or the first few days? If someone watching it 3 days in a row is considered as 3 spectators, that's understandable that at the end of the tourney we might reach that number, but all at once, I don't believe it

Re: 3 billion TV viewers for Roland Garros !!!

Where did you get that info? That can't be true, and if it is Nadal is going to have to hide in the moon. There won't be a place where nobody will recognize him. The same with all the rest of the players!

I know, that's what I thought about - half the world!

The Chinese are also taking big steps in the sport of tennis so maybe they do account for some of that 3 billion.

Re: 3 billion TV viewers for Roland Garros !!!

Unless all of China was watching this then that could be close and I'd like to see how this was measured.

There are people in Australia who are watching on pay TV.

As much as I love RG I don't believe it.

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".

Those are some good points you make.

Yeah, 3 billion all at once, would make this a tennis-mad world, wouldn't it?

Why is Australia doing this to its tennis fans, especially since it's such a tennis-loving nation?
