The Major Suckitude of all active French Open Champions

Anyone else seem to notice this right now?
Nadal--hurt, sucking since Wimbledon final
Gaudio--sucking since he won FO
Ferrero--see Gaudio
Kuerten--chronic hip, sucking for years, mounting comeback
Moya--up and down since he won FO 9 years ago, sucking lately since loss to Blake at AO

What's up with this?

This could also apply to former FO finalist Guillermo Coria. As for the situation, I don't know. I guess it's the curse of the clay.

I love tennis because of...

Andre Agassi (always #1)---Novak Djokovic ---Rafa Nadal---
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga---Gilles Simon---Tomas Berdych---David Nalbandian---Nico Almagro

His suckage actually comes from not winning it However, with the current trend, something else would have broken down instead of his mind.

Re: The Major Suckitude of all active French Open Champions

Rafa's made two GS quarterfinals since Wimbledon, his best result in both tournaments. The only other players to do so were Federer, Roddick, Haas, and Davydenko. He's hurting, but it's a little early to say he sucks.

Fan of: Federer Safin Haas Nadal Santoro Agassi Tursunov's blog

"I couldn't even tell you who the No. 1 ranked tennis player in the world is right now," Federer said. "It's probably me, still. It is, isn't it?" The Onion

Okay, call it "The Curse of Clay..."

Rumors of Nadal's death are somewhat exaggerated.

Sooooo untrue. Gaudio played some of his best tennis after the RG title.

EDIT: He might "suck" now, but IMHO his RG title has nothing to do with it, in fact, I would say his RG title has more to do with his great level during 2004 and 2005.

He managed to stay in the year end top ten the next year. I remember many haters said that his RG victory was a fluke and that he would go down after not defending it.

It's true that Ferrero hasn't been himself in the recent years ,but it wasn't after the 2003 RG - he reached the us open final and won a tms in Madrid.

He also reached the semis at the 2004 AO.

Its such a pity tho. im a big gaudio fan, i think he's ridiculously talented, and has the game to challenge most of the big guys on the tour (except possibly the fedmister) i just dont understand why he has his head that far up his ass
same goes to ferrero in a way.

i dont understand all the fuss abt nadal's situation tho, i agree he isnt playing his very best, but he's doing alright...
