Roland Garros — a graveyard of heroes

Rohit Brijnath

Federer is seen as the player of the greatest tennis but not yet its greatest player, writes Rohit Brijnath




Two hundred years hence when archaeologists search for clues to the broken dreams of old tennis heroes they will commence by sifting the dust at the ancient arena of Roland Garros.

Deep in the Paris clay washed by tears, amidst the small shards of shattered rackets, the earth will tell poignant stories. Of John McEnroe, succumbing when just a volley away from beating Ivan Lendl in the 1984 final; of Pete Sampras' five-set gallantry in 1996 over Sergie Bruguera and Jim Courier, both French champions, but finding his body could go no further.

Of how Stefan Edberg's sinewy splendour, and Jimmy Connors's grimacing desire, and Boris Becker's pounding ferocity, would all come to die here. Most of these men would win the other three slams, but clay would claim them and alter history. If McEnroe had conquered France he would be one of the five greatest ever; if Sampras had, Rod Laver would concede his throne.

Greatest player?


So then, 200 years from now, what will these archaeologists find about Roger Federer? The bones of Swiss defeat or the faint footprints of famous victory?

Federer is already seen as the player of the greatest tennis we have seen, but not yet its greatest player. That designation appears imminent, too, but it will be undisputed if he wins the French to become the sixth player after Don Budge, Fred Perry, Laver, Roy Emerson, and Andre Agassi to succeed at all four Slams.

Both Sampras, the defeated, and Thomas Muster, the (1995) victor, dubbed the French the `toughest' Slam to win, but then Federer is tennis' toughest player. He is also its most beautiful and when he performs you half expect critics from a paper's art, not sports, section to be in attendance. We know, too, he can paint on any canvas for last summer he produced consecutive victories at Wimbledon (grass), Gstaad (clay) and Toronto (hard court).

But if on most surfaces his game is so astonishingly dominant that allowing him one serve seems the only fair handicap, there remains the suspicion that clay faintly erodes his menace. His career winning percentage is 77.6 on hard court, 78.4 on grass but 68.8 on clay. Everywhere else he is favourite, at the French it is Rafael Nadal; everywhere else men look anxiously to see if they are his chosen lunch, at the French even he might secretly wish for a friendly draw.

No theory sits easily with Federer and clay. One might say that at 80 per cent efficiency, he can withstand most challenges on grass, but on his off days, like against Gustavo Kuerten at the French last year, may have more fatal implications. That said, he appeared less fluent in Hamburg on clay last week, but still won without dropping a set. This man does not merely own tennis' finest `A' game, but also its most capable `B' game.

The leveller


Perhaps the leveller is not merely surface, but opponent. Unlike grass, clay is rife with specialists; unlike hard court where the Swiss has no immediate peer, on clay the distance between him and the pack of Coria, Nadal, Gasquet closes minutely.

His outrageous talent suggests Federer must win the French one day, but sport routinely makes a mockery of such assumptions. Nevertheless, it makes this Open even more enchanting, for there is something pleasing to the fact that even tennis' grand riddler is confronted by a puzzle he is yet to solve. It is almost an affront to his genius and it could spur him. So, too, could his belief that he is too finely gifted to become just another headstone in this graveyard of heroes.

Hey, guys. I'm a new member to these forums. My name is Jason, I'm 23 years old, and I live in Texas. It's great to be joining in after viewing all of your posts for months.

About the French Open draw:

-Marat Safin. Is this guy cursed? For the third time in as many months, he's likely to meet Juan Carlos Ferrero in the third round of a tournament. Being a huge fan of these two players, it breaks my heart to see one of them go so early. I'm rooting for Safin since Ferrero's beaten him in the last two times. I just hope he brings his A game to Roland Garros.

-Rafal Nadal: Did anyone see the photo of him after the draw was announced? He was NOT happy, and there's one reason why: Richard Gasquet. Yes, Nadal beat him in Monte Carlo--but only barely, and, with my eyes, a little bit of help from lady luck. Rafa's been superb all year long but I think the hype, and/or Gasquet, will get to him. I mean, this is his first French Open, after all.

Roger Federer: I like him alot, but I'm getting a wee bit tired of the endless accolades being heaped on him. And at 24, earning a career grand slam is just too..early. He'll do it eventually, but now? I hope not.

Andre Agassi: I betcha Mr. Steffi Graf is jumping up and down right now. Why? The draw was kindest to him. In his section, there's no Federer, no Nadal, no real clay court specialist in his way that can tear him down. And Roddick's never been a real problem for him. I can see him getting into the semis. And if Federer and Nadal are eliminated at this point, he stands a very good chance at winning the thing.

I just read that Joachim Johansson has withdrawn from the Open, thereby giving a reprieve to Robin Soderling, who will now face Fernando Verdasco instead of Roger Federer. Feder will face a qualie or a lucky loser.

welcome, and I know the feeling of being an American tennis fan, but it must be esp. tough for you in texas :) to use a little texas talk though, nadal will whoop up on gasquet! RG made it to the finals last week, but check the competition - it's a tougher road this time around. Good luck to you & RG in RG though!

I second this. As much as I like to see JCF bounce back, right now Marat needs some kind of breakthrough. And let's not forget. In the third round, it could be Marat vs Santoro, and we all know how that "rivalry" has turned out to be so far. I think he would rather face JC than Fabrice.


Roger Federer: I like him alot, but I'm getting a wee bit tired of the endless accolades being heaped on him. And at 24, earning a career grand slam is just too..early. He'll do it eventually, but now? I hope not.

Federer's only 23! I think it's too early, too, to achieve the grand slam, but I would rather see him get it over with now than have it hovering over his head for years and years.


Andre Agassi: I betcha Mr. Steffi Graf is jumping up and down right now. Why? The draw was kindest to him. In his section, there's no Federer, no Nadal, no real clay court specialist in his way that can tear him down. And Roddick's never been a real problem for him. I can see him getting into the semis. And if Federer and Nadal are eliminated at this point, he stands a very good chance at winning the thing.

That section of the draw is ridiculous. It will be a shame if AA doesn't make it to the quarters, but I think Coria will come out of the bottom half. And Canas is dangerous also.

Not really the draw I've been wishing for Marat. An early possible meeting with Juanqui i.e. if he doesn't screw up much earlier ;) (oh please...no!) but a draw is a draw and players have to deal with it. So... Allez Marat!

Soderling became the 33rd seed and took Johansson's place in the draw to face Verdasco, so now Federer is playing either a LL or a qualifier.
