Oh and about the point daze made concerning the french crowd: Pretty much every time Guille played in RG and it was shown on TV here the majority of the crowd would support his opponent. The most extreme case was the semi in 2004. But whatever...it is a special place for Guille and it always will be.
yeah, i've heard it in many contexts that the french announcers were always criticizing him abd that the crowds were cold to him there.
the romance of the french open is in his mind, as the premier showcase for clay court tennis. This is understandable but i dont think it is france he likes.
