Nadal on Suzanne Lenglen = disrespect ?

Why the hell did they schedule the 4 time defending champion and world number 1 on court Suzanne Lenglen?

Are Murray and Safin/Ouanna that more important to the French Open?

When was the last time they did this to a defending champion? Ivanovic gets to play at Chatrier.
I'm not a Nadal fan but I think this is highly inappropriate.

Discuss.

Didn't he played in SL last year?

I've read/heard, for whatever it's worth, that the surface of the SL-court is in fact a little slower than the PC-court, due to there being no cement underneath the clay or something the like (I'm not good at those technical details, someone else might well explain it a lot better than me).

So I wouldn't be all too surprised if Rafa (especially if he indeed has some kind of physical discomfort with his knees), actually ASKED for himself to play over there. Just a guess... :shrug:

They are probably switching up the top players between show courts in the early rounds to be fair. Murray played on Lenglen for the 1st round.

I thought it was Federer who played on Lenglen 2 years ago when he was number 1 against Ascione.
But if you guys say so, I just thought it's a little bit weird to put those 2 matches ahead of the french number 1 (Simon) and the reigning champion that's all.

Maybe it would benefit Nadal because SL is slower than PC, not that he would lose that match against Gaba on PC but still...

Fair enough, but with the TV thing I was stressing the point that he plays the last (fifth) turn, thus making it pretty much impossible to set a time for the start. TVs just hate that.

I know it's making a lot of fuss about nothing... I'm just cross at the French for not showing the Ljubo-Ferrero match, disdaining The Magician and putting Stan on court 2 tomorrow, where I'm afraid he might not get the cameras on either... *crossed fingers*

Yeah, but I guess it's not just the TV-bosses' interests that count. I'm sure the tournament organization, as well as the players themselves have a say in the matter as well, to a certain extent, and I'd think that it's not ALWAYS the top dog who gets the most favourable spot. Wouldn't be fair (as much as 'fairness' is at all possible, with rain delays and the like...)
Just a guess, of course...

By the way...some player like SL more, cause it is closer to fans

Oh...but if you live in the US, you know a certain ESPN has airing rights beginning 12 pm eastern thru 630 pm. They are LOVING the fact that this match is so late. They probably begged for it. The match may be starting just as they go to broadcast.

As for putting the defending champ on SL, well, it is only fair to the fans. Not everyone can get seats on Chartrier I'm sure. They've done it routinely in years past.

That is not French's fault, both matches were on show courts and they were broadcasted. You should blame the channel you were watching for making such choice. HTV 3 was showing Ljubicic-Ferrero occasionally switching to Sprem-Dokic, and I think UK Eurosport showed the Santoro-Rochus (at least last 2 sets). I think there are 9 show courts total (court 2 is one of them) and I don't think that there was a slam with that many show courts ever.

Every year we have this discussion, every year.

There's no conspiracy here or any kind of statement being made by the organisers.

Nadal is 6 time RG champ, not to mention defendion champion. All of his matches should be on PC as he's the best clay player by far in history of the sport. Why are trash players like Isner, Matheiu, Wozniacki and Gajdosova taking up valuable PC time when they should be playing on the outside courts?

When Olderer was dominating Wimby, he always played on center court.

This is not the first time Frenchies are showing disrespect to Nadal - in 2010, his first match was on SL. To me, that's unacceptable.

Murray, Isner and Sharapova. :shrug: And Isner's playing a Frenchie. Not exactly mouth-watering encounters (except Sharpy :hearts:) but it does sort of make sense: they can't put three men's matches on PC and it's Nadal's turn to play on SL since Murray already played.

What's your point? Pushray is a joke on this surface and so is ballbasher Sharapova who can't even slide. Isner is a mindless serve bot :zzz:

So far I see not a single legit reason offered why Nadal should play on SL while the collection of mugs scheduled to play today should get PC spot. :shrug:

They`re not treated the same. Nadal will get 6 matches on PC. Isner will more than likely only get 1. The french like to be generous and share the wealth, plus they tend to try and put french players there. How is that difficut to understand? 1 match on SL won't kill him.

That doesn't stand for the rest of the world. Visit their facebook pages and you'll see they have more or less the same amount of fans.
Rafa is very well respected all the world over and in fact if you asked most players their favorite active player they will tell you Nadal.
Your supositions or observations are just that: YOUR observations.

+1 Great post, Nina! :rocker2:

And the Fedtards bowed and prayed to the Maudlin God they made, and Muger's phony grin flashed out in its warning, in the words that he was forming. And Muger said: "The words of your God are written on the bathroom walls and glammy shopping malls." And this filth remains entrenched in the minds and souls of Fedtards... :mad:

In MTF Nadal is way way down the List..

You Nole_Fan are completely wrong.


1 Federer, Roger 771
2 Djokovic, Novak 441
6 Nadal, Rafael 290

Worth remembering over the years that Nadal's behaviour at RG has been less than impressive.

This board is clearly leaned towards Federer side. That's something anyone know at 5 minutes of staying here. That scares away many not-Federer fans.

But tennis world don't begin in MTF and don't end here either.

Not sure how anyone can say who has more fans. Impossible to tell. If you ask casual fans the vast majority of them will say they like Nadal the most. Theres a reason why the ATP is geared towards gladiatorial grindfests like this year's AO - it's what the fans want.

Not in Britain, mate.

I'd contest that. We have many idiotic fangirls here. Look how often Justin Bieber stuff trends in the UK for a start.

the two Wimbledon semis v Murray he had at least 40% of the crowd, when it should be 0%

Admittedly my conversations tend to be with intelligent people over the age of 12 who are genuinely interested in sport, but if you take last year's WTF as an example, it's not often a player's every winner is cheered to the rafters when he's thrashing the living shit out of his opponent.

Why? Only because they prefer a legend over a hopeless pusher/choker?

So wrong :facepalm: you should get out further than your mailbox before stating facts on countries you have no clue about :o

"fans" on facebook are mainly underaged girls, and obviously those are more prone to fancy Rafito's biceps than Roger's class. How many real tennis fans are "fans" on fb?

They're not tennis fans. They're people out enjoying a popular day in the social calendar. Behave.

Likely, and he has more than Djokovic too. He has spent more years in this business, has gotten more titles too and he can speak fairly well in several languages.

Nope, the main reason he has more fans are:

1.He broke almost all records known to man kind regarding tennis.

2. Hes appearance is classy and elegant, true tennis icon.

3. Hes game style is much more attractive then other pushers.

4. Hes the best player in tennis history.

ATP Fans' Favorite award:
Federer: 9 straight times (2003-2011) :bowdown::bowdown::bowdown:
Nadull: 0 time even when he was number 1 and dominating the tour :o

MTF favorite of all time:
Federer: 6 straight times (2006-2011) and soon 2012 :worship::worship::worship:
Nadull: 0 time :lol:

MTF Most Disliked:
Nadull: 3 times (2008,2010,2011) and soon 2012 :cool:
Federer: 0 time ;)

Federer's always crowd's favorite. Hardly see any crowd cheers against him while a lot of times the crowd cheer against Nadull and his ugly style :)

See who is the Boss and who is the beggar? :D:p:devil:

The stuff that makes some people happy and proud. :haha: Seriously? Why are you so proud about that? Pretty sure Justin Biebers of this world also win a lot of popularity awards like that. Not that I am trying to compare both, because that would be silly. I just feel like your need to through that in the face of Rafa fans is absurd and makes you look desperate.

I am rather happy that my own favorite player isn't so popular. Makes it a lot easier to hunt him when I go to tournaments. ;) :sport:

they should be supporting the home team/home player. I've had away fans sitting in my team's end at the football before. It's wrong.

Nadal had more support at the 2008 W final. Federer at the first two. That suggests we're a nation full of glory seekers.
