Deboogle - Sorry about the maths, I'm a professional geek!

By coincidence (another annoying thing that can't ever be properly explained) I just found an article that covers the more human side of what happened to some of the guys you mentioned:-

Deal. A stupid stat for you before I concentrate on cheering for Ferrero. Andy is 86% more likely to win another slam if he changes his name from Roddick to Boddick!!

Me too!

In anticipation of another stellar showing by the American men at Roland Garros, I have scheduled our beach vacation for the second week. I did not even look to see if the hotel has cable television.

hahaha yeah next year my ambition is to go to RG however NOT in anticipation of seeing US players actually go beyond the 1st round but just for the atmosphere and also to say that I am 2/3rds into a Grand Slam!

I am going to RG this year for the first two days. There is then a chance I will actually see someone I like, rather than clay court tennis which at its worst, can put me to sleep.

oooo holly lucky you. Well clay court tennis can be a little mezmerising BUT some matches can be good. Sigh I will have to wait until next year.

Mesmerising is not the right word sometimes. That's being nice to it. Paris is only a couple of hours from where I live, and there is a public holiday on the first Monday so I can make a weekend out of it.

Will you plane it or train it? Heehee sigh I miss living in Europe but then I get spoiled with all the NA tournaments.

DEFINITELY train it. I hate flying so if there is another option I will most likely take it. I haven't been on the Eurostar for years so I am looking forward to that too. Europe is great for the cheap flights and many tournaments. I also like that the first week of French Open always falls on a public holiday weekend too.
