I know most people won't agree with this, but the 1992 Barcelona Olympics are my favorite, its the greatest place on earth, and I'd like for the clay slam to be held at Barcelona instead of Roland Garros. Tradition is the obvious reason why people will say it shouldn't be. Roland Garros has a rich history. But I don't like the crowds behavior, and they turn up late for a final because they want to eat lunch first so the stadiums half full, they boo the Champion out the door when he loses, and many winners over the years have been Spanish. I think there is enough to override tradition.

don't forget Guillermo Vilas one of the first king of clay, Guillermo Coria ( who sould have won 2004 French Open instead of Gaudio, he was clearly the goat in clay courts before the Nadal era ),

Argentina regularly produces some top players like Nalbandian, Del Potro ( who can have good results in clay ) and they have excellent schools for learning to play in clay court exactly like Spain

Spain is in another league. And Ferrero was a better clay courter than Coria.

i like how it is now but i could learn to like tennis grand slams even more if there were alternating cities for some grand slams. French and USO specifically. Far too many great tennis stadiums arent used at their full disposal by the ATP/ITF. I always wondered if Tennis would follow Golf in likeness by having their major/grand slams at different venues/golf courses.

French Open being held in Barcelona, Hamburg or Rome seems great to me ignoring the naming factor of the 'French Open'
USO, any number of cities could handle the USO crowd. Indian Wells, Miami, Cincy, etc

as for Australian and Wimbledon, it doesnt seem right to hold it anywhere else besides London and Melbourne respectively. I'm not sure if there is an venue in Sydney like what they have in Melbourne. does anyone know?

http://www.sportbusiness.com/news/174110/french-open-could-move-from-roland-garros
The French Open could be forced into a "heartbreaking" move away from Paris in the next few years due to opposition against extending Roland Garros, according to tournament director Gilbert Ysern.

Plans to build extensions to the current stadia at Roland Garros have stalled because of opposition from the public and environmentalists. Organisers are now considering four possible new locations in the Paris suburbs.

“We have two options, make it bigger or move out,” said Ysern. “It would be heartbreaking to leave Paris but we have to consider it.”

“Over the last 10 years, the three other grand slam tournaments have progressed, notably in terms of infrastructure, but we haven't…Roland Garros cannot stay the way it is.”

A final decision over moving the tournament is expected during a general assembly of the French Tennis Federation next February.

So you think because the crowd sucks, France does not deserve a slam? Well, let me tell you something about spanish crowd: when a non-spaniard- player beats sweet Verdasco or awsome Nadal, they boo. That doesn't sound nice to me at all.

I love Spain and its people, but their behaviour towards sports, IMO, is far from being perfect, specially for a sport like tennis.

Exactly my point. This year in Madrid I watched it happening and guess who wa sthe player? Ferrer playing Baghdatis (I think) and between sets, the BALL GIRL went to Ferrer's box where she collected a paper to deliver to Ferrer.

Well DUH. Every thread in this forum is based on opinion. The facts in question were regarding the reasons for Roland Garros being a poor host. And they are facts, because we've all witnessed the negatives repeatedly over the years. The article proves my point, Roland Garros' status as a grand slam host is under question, so moving it wouldn't be a surprise. Where it will be moved to is something I never claimed to know.

Um no, they boo a 4-time (at the time) champion off the court. No slam crowd would do that. Wimbledon wouldn't boo Federer (or Nadal) off the court. US Open wouldn't boo Federer (or Del Potro) off the court. Australian wouldn't boo Federer (or Nadal) off the court. This is one of several reasons anyway, so it is not THE reason for leaving Roland Garros, but its a very good reason in my opinion. If they can't respect a 4-time winner (at the time) then who do they respect on any given day? And sure if it was after the Spaniard lost to a French player, slightly just slightly understandable to have some booing, but not a plethora and not after beating a Swede lol. Reeks of racism.

Spain will never have a GS and rightfuly so.

I totally AGREE with this. The sport doesn´t need more than 4 majors, and they should all stay where they are for historical reasons, at least until the time is ripe for moving one of them to somewhere outside white-man-land.

A slam is about more than just tennis courts and fans. It needs tradition, it needs an aura. You don´t simply go and make those things happen out of thin air. In Madrid (my town for a large part of my life) there is a lot of talk of trying to create a GS. It horrifies me. It would bring huge embarrasment on the city and attract flack from all true tennis fans. It could be the undoing of Spanish tennis. Please writte to your MP/senator/whatever venting your outrage at the idea.

RG should stay put. The only situation that would certainly change my mind is if they move it to Dysneyland. That would be so preposterous that I would consider they had forfeited any historical claim to it. In that case (but only then), I'd think Barcelona, Rome, Buenos Aires (and why not the nicest big city in Iberia, Lisbon?) would do fine. Madrid should only be an option if (1) they nuked the Caja Mágica (alternative: turn it into whatever else BUT a tennis venue)(2)all people involved around the conception of Madrid MS (except Santana) were placed on permanent lattrine watch until further notice (alternative: hanged, drawned and quartered with tickets selling for the benefit of a charity, whatever is more convenient).

Just because you're a tard, doesn't mean they'll move the French. It's a fact.
