So it is unfair to blame Federer because "all he did was give his opinion of the court when asked about it by the TDs"

but it is alright to blame Rafa because "all he did was give his opinion of the court when asked about it by the TDs"

Now, that would be hilarious. I can just see it, "Nadal, King of Disney" or "Nadal, The Disney Monster".

Fedal acted like whiny bitches so they got rid of the only carpet TMS for a slow indoor hard one.

The history of guys like Becker, Sampras, Safin, Henman and other indoor monsters dominating the event was tarnished.

And now Federer is whining about another tournament not catering to his every whim and will probably get it changed as well.

Isn't Federer the head of players' union or something like that?? Wouldn't that list of complaints be a collections of things that tennis players don't like about the tournament, and not his own list???

So, Roger won it before it became a Disneyland. I think that's the only what matters. But I also fear 4 years before Roger won it, it had been a Disneyland as well. So, they may move it to it's deserved location as far as RogiGOAT already achieved his Career Slam. Go on.

This is a great idea....it'd be even better if they'd get rid of all clay tournaments as well.

Default French Open could be saved at Roland Garros

...it wouldn't be the same



The French Open could be forced into a "heartbreaking" move away from Paris in the next few years due to problems with the infrastructure at Roland Garros. Organisers have long considered ways of extending the current stadia but these have stalled because of opposition from the public and environmentalists.
And tournament director Gilbert Ysern explained: "We have two options, make it bigger or move out.
"It would be heartbreaking to leave Paris but we have to consider it."
A final decision on whether the tournament will remain in Paris is expected during a general assembly of the French Tennis Federation scheduled for next February.


But while the various extension plans have not been completely dismissed, organisers are now considering four possible new locations in the Paris suburbs, all over 15 kms away from the capital, including Versailles and Disneyland Paris.
"Over the last 10 years, the three other grand slam tournaments have progressed, notably in terms of infrastructure, but we haven't," Ysern added, referring to the Australian Open, Wimbledon and US Open.
"Roland Garros cannot stay the way it is."
The French Open attracts 450,000 spectators during the fortnight it takes place, but Ysern revealed that world number one Roger Federer had given him a "long list of complaints" about the Paris tournament.
This year's French Open runs from 24 May to 6 June.

Like Centre Court at Wimbledon, Chatrier is iconic and it oozes CHARM and HISTORY. I suspect the banksters over at BNP Paribas are behind this in some way. Just look at Arthur Ashe Stadium [EASILY the worst slam showcourt in the world] and what the banksters at JP Morgan Chase and American Express did to that. Two levels of luxury suites [for their greedy, corrupt ilk] that push the average ticketholder seated in the promenade out into STRATOSPHERIC HEIGHTS. Terrible seating and with absolutely no warmth, intimacy, or charm -- just a massive, monolithic piece of shit designed only to maximize $$$ [at the expense of fan enjoyment] and serve as a playground for the debauched.

Fucking ridiculous.

If they have to move, Versailles would be the best choice, and not just because it's 10 minutes from my parents' place.
It's the only of the 4 places suggested that has enough prestige.

Disneyland and Gonesse (I don't know about Evry) have good transports facilities but like elessar said, there's nothing else around to see. And Gonesse is next to one of the busiest airports in the world.

I wonder where they would build it in Versailles though.

Clay tennis is bad tennis. Clay is a barbaric surface for a sport...it should be reserved only for poor children in areas that cannot afford real tennis courts.

Move the tournament to Los Angeles and put it on a fast hardcourt, or maybe grass.
