Then the wonderful events of Bucharest and Palermo.

Of course for the more dedicated there are clay challengers.

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".

The clay court challengers in South America at the end of the year are wonderful.

Re: Clay season is over, thanks god...

There are also some clay courts next to my house - they will host a number of matches during the rest of the year (I will inform you if someone manages to get the first serve in)

Grand Slam Season as of 2008:

Australian Open
Roland Garros
JOKE SLAM
U.S. Open

Re: Clay season is over, thanks god...

I'm already depressed that tomorrow is the final day of Roland Garros. It takes me a few days to get my head around the speed of grass at Queens and Halle. Clay court tennis is for the real connaisseur and comes a close second to hard court tennis in my order of preference in relation to court surfaces. I go to the French Open and Wimbledon every year and prefer RG every time. Can't wait for Eurosport's coverage of Gstaad. My favourite televised tournament of the Summer is Stuttgart. I really want to go to that tournament. Have any of you been there? I wouldn't say that grass is for cows as I really love grass court tennis too. I just love clay more.
