Smile Ah, Paris in the fall is magnifique, and so is JC!

I don't know how you would spell Paris in French, so just say it with the French accent when you read the title. And cue the romantic accordion and piano music in the background too.

Looks like with the latest withdraws, JC is going to be seeded after all for Paris. He's 19 in the entry rankings this week, so with Roger, Nadal, Safin, Andre, and Gasquet out JC's going to be at least #14 (and I kind of hope he stays at #14, because Vee was #14 at Wimbly ).

*******************************
And because I love the song, I'm throwing in some lyrics right now.

La Complainte de la Butte
La lune trop bleme pose un diademe sur tes cheveux roux
La lune trop rousse de gloire eclabousse ton jupon plein d'trous
La lune trop pale caresse l'opale de tes yeux blases
Princesse de la rue soit la bienvenue dans mon coeur brise

Les escaliers de la butte sont durs aux misereux
Les ailes du moulin protegent les amoureux

Petite mandigotte je sens ta menotte qui cherche ma main
Je sens ta poitrine et ta taille fine
J'oublie mon chagrin
Je sens sur tes levres une odeur de fievre de gosse mal nourri
Et sous ta caresse je sens une ivresse qui m'aneantit

Les escaliers de la butte sont durs aux misereux
Les ailes du moulin protegent les amoureux
Et voila qu'elle trotte la lune qui flotte, la princesse aussi
La da da da da da da da da da
Mes reves epanouis
Les escaliers de la butte sont durs aux misereux
Les ailes du moulin protegent les amoureux

What would Anderson say?

Re: Ah, Paris in the fall is magnifique, and so is JC!

well its a shame so many good players have pulled out, but its good news for JC hopefully he should do well

Rafa Nadal Juanqui Ferrero

Marat Safin Carlos Moya Feli Lopez Nando Verdasco Richie Gasquet

Robredo Guga Garcia-Lopez Ferrer Tomeu

Interviewer: It surprises people how well you get on with Nadal
Carlos Moya: I can't conceal that. I love him very much and I knew that one day he would be better than me. He's on another level.

Re: Ah, Paris in the fall is magnifique, and so is JC!

No more Rafa. No more Roger. No more Andre. Possibly no more Lleyton....





Finally both my favs are seeded for a tournament.

If JC can progress into Basel's latter stages, it won't drain him for Paris because he gets a bye Unlike Madrid

COME ON JC! Lets play some tennis

But no Marat That is disappointing.

Paris is Paris in French...

How come so 'optimiste', El Sol? Aren't you supposed to be suffering from S.A.D. at this dark time of year?

Re: Ah, Paris in the fall is magnifique, and so is JC!

S.A.D.?

If anything, I'm going to be suffering from too many term papers the next few weeks. And I don't know how I am so optimistic right now...maybe it's because I did amazing on my Econ exam.

What would Anderson say?

S.A.D.=Seasonal Affective Disorder, i.e., depression due to lack of daylight

Well done on the Econ exam!

Re: Ah, Paris in the fall is magnifique, and so is JC!

I'm moody all the time, so it's probably more like Yearly Affective Disorder for me.

That's OK, I know what I'm saying here. When French teams win, such as in football, they sing:

ON EST CHAMPIGNONS! ON EST CHAMPIGNONS! ON EST, ON EST, ON EST CHAMPIGNONS!!

Hopp Rogi! Go Gonzo! Allez Gasquet!

Pauvre Juan Carlos! Tu mets trop de pression sur notre petit Moustique espagnol [valencien].

Est-ce vrai que tu y seras? C'est cool, ca!
