I have a lot of movies that I haven't watched yet that should keep me occupied during those two weeks.

I felt pressure this time and folded just like Roger.

3-1 is not bad in terms of thread success.

Hope your thread brings better luck for Roger (as in Roger can actually keep his mental state at a more even level).

My prediction is that based on what I saw during the clay season, Roger will defend his RG points. That is the best we can hope for at this point.

I'll take it. Hopefully, he will not fall to Volandris/Hornas of this world early. Also, it wouldn't hurt if Jerk/Nalbandian landed on the other side, but I'm afraid I'm asking for too much.

Federer was in a winning position in 4 of the 5 sets they played on clay. He was in more rallies, returned serve better than ever, and dictated a lot with the FH. He'll be a big underdog again against Nadal if he gets there, but this is as good of a chance as ever.

Agreed, but for that chance to come to fruition, he needs to forget how he let his advantage go in those 4 sets and he needs to get amnesia about that for 3-5 sets at RG if they meet again. A pretty big hurdle don't you think?

So in addition to a rain dance to make sure the clay in Paris is damp and the bounce doesn't bother Roger as much now he'll also be needing an hypnotist to get him to forget chances he's missed against Nadal in the past
