how will the americans fare at roland garros this year? you will recall that all 9 who entered last year, managed to go up in flames in the very first round.

the great andy roddick was one of them. he got donkey kicked by igor andreev. we all remember that match. igor must have hit 10000 forehand winners past dazed and confused roddick.

another notable american, the great james blake, got dusted by dr ivo who has a nasty habit of serving from the clouds.

the question for the board: can we expect the americans to do better this year, how about the great andy roddick--the resurging andy roddick, that is? can he translate some of his success on hard courts to clay? will the americans make any kind of headway at roland garros this year or once again be the laughing stock of the planet?

finally, does the road to the finals and ultimately the title goes through the Clay Monster?

I don't think it really matters herc. None of them have a legitimate chance at the title. :)

Amazing thread.

After these 2 wins Roddick will make the RG final.

i hear you bgt but it still bothers me that we cannot do a little better there. it would be rather refreshing to see blake and roddick at least make it into the 2nd week.

how come your constant and unremitting skepticism has not put you in a mental health facility yet?

i would seriously start considering drinking cheap liquor. it works for clowns like you.

Roddick has already decided to concentrate on Wimbledon. It makes sense. Fed's done, Nadal and Djokovic are beatable (proven in Dubai), others are grass court clowns/mental midgets.
Blake, Sam, Ginepri, Fish have no chance beyond the 2nd round.

Yes, the road to the title goes through The Clay Monster.

can we expect any surprises there this year at Roland Garros? for instance, Tsonga was the big surprise at the Australian Open.

I actually believe that 2 or 3 of them have a chance at making the second round. Hopefully Amer is one of them.

X = number of Americans enter the tournament.
X - (X-1) = second round.

If I'm being nice, I'd say 1 might make it to the third round at best. He'd be really lucky to make it beyond the fourth if he's in some MM tourney type draw.

Dont forget about Alomiah and Goran911
Pretenders to the throne, court jesters. And you've just given me an idea. When did Goran911 join, and when was Dimonator banned? :scratch:
