If Rafa wins a 9th in RG, should the french rename the main court to "Rafael Nadal"?

I know he aint french, but come on, 9 would be just too hot to handle. We all know he should deserve the main court name, despite his nationality and being still active, no? :worship:

They should do, maybe aussies are more flexible and if nole wins couple of AO more they consider doing it later. French people are just too damn arrogant and sober.

They should rename courts to people who really deserved and earned it, not renamed to some dinosaurs.

The French don't even like Nadull, and I don't blame them. They always wanted Fed to win over him, but unfortunately for them, the match-up issue was too much. With that said, doesn't matter what dulltards want.

Why would that make sense at all? I could understand if he was French, but he's not.

Obviously not.

Philippe Chatrier wasn't even a good tennis player. He never even got passed the second round at the French Championships. They didn't change the name of the arena after Borg, why would they change it after Nadal. 9 or 60, he ain't French, it's not gonna happen.

Also, it will help to know some history.

Chatrier died in Dinard in 2000. The main tennis court at the Stade de Roland Garros, the home of the French Open in Paris, was renamed the Court Philippe Chatrier in his honour in 2001.

Better chance of it being named Leo and Lenny court, tbh

No, he isn't french.

Same goes for Djoke at AO, though 4 isn't even comparable to 8.

The only name the main court is surely gonna receive in the future is "Yannick Noah".

I've fixed before. It keeps reverting to 22-18 for whatever reason. Soon will be 23-19 anyway
