Monte Carlo or Bust: Maturity is the capacity to endure uncertainty.

My record is no better than Kalisita's but here goes.

And we're going and Roger has now decided to play so I shall enjoy it no matter what.

Allez Nole!

Nice title! Ah yes, you're going He'd better do good now... I'd be scared in his place

But you know what to do, print the "Reasons why Nole lost" thread and try to avoid/solve every point, and he'll be fine

Since we already had French and Serbian here, I'll shout at him in Dutch: Komaan Nole!

Fear not; my intentions are strictly benign and honourable. (Anyway, I shall be chaperoned; my husband is coming too)

Forecast is great for Monday and Tuesday.

Not sure Herdwick's other half would appreciate that - though I'm sure she would

She is a smart woman, she'll manage.

Seriously, have a great time, Herdwick, and take some Nole pictures for us.

That's great.

I see you're doing the reserach.

I can't understand why you don't like Monaco? Is it because of the elitism and hypocrisy that define the principality? Well, that certainly annoys me as well, but it's such a beautiful place.

Re: Monte Carlo or Bust: Maturity is the capacity to endure uncertainty.

I loathe it and I don't think it's beautiful. The location is stunning but the place is devoid of anything of architectural interest or character. It's well nigh impossible to walk anywhere, it's totally artificial, grossly overpriced and populated by people of whom the kindest description I can muster is that of 'international riff-raff'. Same sort of people who live in Dubai in short.

That the tennis community to some extent identifies with, and patronises, such places is, to my mind, one of its biggest failings...

You could write a book explaining why you don't like Monaco.

I do understand your point of view. But Nole lives there , so it must have something good.

No taxes But seriously - I do hear what Herdwick is saying, and I sympathise and agree to a certain extent, - but I can't deny a big fondness for MC. Apart from some very early trips to Roland Garros with family, it was the first "foreign" tournament I ever went to alone, and - bizarrely - the place where I first met my Argentine ex-boyfriend and we used to go there quite a lot I took Alex there for his Birthday last year and he it and wants to go back! I'm envious - wish I was going too
