I agree.

Btw, I accidentally put quarters/semis in the same category, so please say which one if you vote for that option.

Re: How far can Lleyton go at The French Open?

Hewitt winning the French Open is only slightly more likely than Greece declaring war on China. Having said that, it is interesting that it takes a good player to take out Hewitt at the French, even though the surface does not fit his game.

Those ...evil Chinese, they have infiltrated the Greek market and destroyed many small businesses. They will be eliminated by the modern ...Spartans





EDIT: as for Hewitt I will go with 3rd round (best case scenario)

Actually, I had in mind the Sparta movie and I wanted an example of a very low probability event that I had not used before

Re: How far can Lleyton go at The French Open?

3rd, maximum 4th round at an average draw, then he is toast

Re: How far can Lleyton go at The French Open?

First round
He wouldnt make it through the qualies if he had to.
His chances to win RG are about as high as mine
