Re: I like Seb best on....

On clay ! It's not his best surface, of course, but I love watching him in Roland Garros, it's simply the greatest tournament for the french players, the matches often are dramatic in the 5th sets. Sentimentally it's different.
And Seb never could have asked for the empire to check to mark during his match against Nadal on another surface ! *provocation*

No seriously, I really don't like grass, I don't have many occasions to see Seb on this surface but, even if he plays well on, it's too fast, too schematic, too insipid for me. Moreover I don't like the general atmosphere, the crowd is unexistent, everybody in white is boring...no emotions.

I like to see him on hard courts like in Melbourne, Key Biscayne, Bercy etc...

Re: I like Seb best on....

Marine, we sooooo think the opposite.. Funny.....

Cos I'm french, yes, but not only I notice lots people don't like grass, for the same reasons, it's too fast, etc...

Really? Okay then we also know very different kinda ppl lol, cos I know lotsa ppl appreciate Wimbledon the most.. But it doesnt matter, thats okay, its good.. would be boring if we'd all had the same opinions..

The fastness of grass is an adventage for Sebs serve.. Our commentators here in the Netherlands always compliment Sebs serve.. But thats another thing..

Anyway we both have the same opinion about Seb in general that's the most important.

U know I'm paradoxal, because I don't like clay players and I use to like guys like Sampras, Rafter, Henman, Federer... in fact I like watching these players to play their offensive game on clay, it's more interesting. But on grass it's boring, because there are not rallies :retard:

Re: I like Seb best on....

I like Seb best on rye bread, with tomato and mozzarella. Yum!

Actually I like him best on grass. Because that's my fave surface and that's where he's produced his best GS performance (I think that's right) and he gets to use his box of tricks and flicks to the fullest effect

Good luck tomorrow Seb!

Re: I like Seb best on....

Make this poll during Roland Garros and most poeple will vote "clay".

It depends of the moment.

Re: I like Seb best on....

well, I voted on "hardcourt" lol (quite a stranger there) coz I'll always remember victory at Bercy 2001 and Master Cup final... (not really hardcourts, maybe synthetic but anyway I love his game on hardcourts !!!)
happily he's able to play a fantastic game on any surface ;-)

Nah I dont think so.. Its like Wilma says, its not only Seb i like to see on grass, but the greatest players you see during the grass season.. Well especially in earlier times, like IVANISEVIC!! and Sampras, Krajicek, Henman.. And now theres still Ancic, Federer and Henman.. The Serve and Volley game is just perfect to see .. Unfortunatly not enough around at these times..

Also Wimbledon is such a big happening, which makes it so cool... I saw some interviews with great players like Clijsters and she finds Wimbeldon so special too!.. LOL but I cant change ur mind anyway so lol...

I don't think so, Marine! I agree with Lizanne; Wimbledon's got a great atmosphere (but I'm sure you will say the same about RG )
