Well Cash replacing Becker it's fitting ego for ego and neither won a clay title.

McEnroe and Muster that will be a fun clash of two lefthanders and I wonder how seriously McEnroe will take this tournament.

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".

Maybe Muster should use the outfit of your avatar to confuse John!

Actually Johnny Mac he had some mojo when he had the huge afro in the 70s.

But the french open is the most gruelling of the slams and an inspired Lendl did steal "Johnny Mac's Mojo" that day.

Lendl just had a better sense of humour and McEnroe wasn't fit and I love the fact that McEnroe never won there.

Noah should be playing at this event.

The only 5 set final of recent times at RG that has been horrible was the 99 one final and a horrible memory it still is.

91 was a good result even though I hate Courier, but 93 was better though this is when the French showed their love for all things Spanish when they really loved Bruguera.

because you hate Agassi even more.

Nothing is worse for me than Courier winning two french open and talking french.

Hopefully Sergi was there in 93...Maybe that's why frenchies like him so much.

Why did you hate Courier speaking French?

Bruguera won in 93 and that's when Courier went downhill and yes they really appreciated him for sure, maybe he should have changed his nationality.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

I was very young in 93 and probably "a little bit" in love with Sergi

During his speech Courier said in french something like "I'm talking like a spanish cow right now!" with an arrogant american attitude.

I probably took it personally.

I thought he was refering to Sergi speaking French like a Spanish cow, cause I know Sergi was speaking mostly French during that presentation, but Courier is Courier, so it's not surprising.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

I understand! Yes, he was referring to Sergi's French...unsuccessful attempt of typical French humour... But his French wasn't bad at all, to be honest.
