The title of the thread teases me...I was like "what's up?"...but I have to say I'm kinda disappointed...

You can't be serious! The players you named, not recognized by the crowd...Let me have a laugh.
Are you really convinced that the French Open is gonna lose significance? Don't forget about the particular attraction it can have among tennis fans who prefer clay as a surface. RG has always had-and will always have!!!- that special atmosphere able to attract so many ppl...no matter who the winner is or could be! I've got 1 question, have you ever been to the French Open? Do you know how it feels? I hope you're not saying what you said only because you think that clay's not worth mentioning and that only the 3 other GS are worthy...
Roger Federer needs to win the French Open so inject some validity back into it. Or even an Andy Roddick success there would be welcomed too, especially since he is already a US Open champ and is recognized in the States.
To make it clear, I have nothing against the 2 players you mentioned, but, I doubt that a victory from them at the FO would change anything to its significance or validity...call it whatever you want.
Thanks for the entertainment...
