They are just as disrespectful to their own players at times too.

Re: Disrespectful French Crowd.

RG is the worst in terms of spectators... nothing new... and it's not only for their players too, take a look at Serena Vs Justine; Justine lied about putting up her hand, and the French crowd cheered for her. They have no integrity at all.

The French tennis crowd is shocking. I would love to hear the players' 'off-the-record' remarks about it.

It is not really about who's playing. They whistle at every player who dares check a mark on clay, they whistle for any little thing.
I'm French and I hate that. And it's even worse when you're sitting among them and they're booing and whistling for nothing and you just want to them so that they shut it up.

Guy Forget is commenting, and since the beginning the match he said a few times "why are they whistling? it's wrong, he has the right to check if it's in or out"

They boo more often than they cheer.

Is it Nadal's fault that Mathieu keeps missing the lines and the lines people don't call it.
