Yes Strange, 3 mp's for the american.
3 MPs for Kudla @ 0-40, 14-13
What is it about Court 18 at slams?!
GSM Kudla d. Polansky 6-4 3-6 15-13
Cool, DK moves on to the qual round with a 15-13 3rd set win, wow!
ACES / DF's: Kudla 8 / 4, Polansky 8 / 2
A bit more than a 5 o'clock shadow on Simon in Nice at the moment. I hope this means he's growing back his Wolverine beard for the French. If he does...watch out.
Stats were not working then thats what I suspected.
No, the weather has been worse than usual in Paris, much colder.
The weather here has been sh*tty for weeks now. I've never seen such a cold month of May in Paris. Today was the first time I saw the sun since two weeks ago.
And no improvement is forecast for the upcoming days.
Federer should be the favorite based on the threads prophesizing his victory in Paris.
The forecast is horrible!
Better postpone the tournament by a week or two.
Worst poll ever lol
When's the draw?
I think it's Friday. Can someone confirm?
EDIT: It is on Friday. http://www.rolandgarros.com/en_FR/scores/draws/ms/index.html
Not that it matters, I just wanted to see if Berdych lands in Federer's quarter. Cause as sure as hell Nadal will be kept as far from Djokovic as possible.
Stars are aligning for Nole.
Yeah, I was hoping that Federer and Nadal would be the third and fourth seeds, however, with Murray out, that hope is dashed. del Potro is one less big-hitter to worry about now, but Berdych is probably the most threatening QF opponent (to anyone, really).
Actually, with Murray out Fed and Nadal are seeds 3 and 4. Ferrer with be seeded 4.
There's still 2.5 weeks until the would play. Weather will be changing.
No Mulitple Votes....to pick 1 for men and women.
Thankfully Love Game has the female RG thread.
Wouldn't Murray's absence give Federer the second seed and Nadal the third?
Oops that's what I meant. Oh, I see, I misread your post. Long day!
Hahaha no worries! We all have them!
Djokovic. You can see my Borg-McEnroe comparison on another thread. Nadal's on the way down and is about to be surprised.
Nole for the win.
Gods know Djokovic deserves RG. Why? If Federer, who never mastered Nadal and still struggles against him, managed to get hold of the Roland Garros in 2009, then Djokovic, owing to his recent wins against Nadal, for sure deserves it more than Federer.
P.S.> This is coming from a huge Federer fan.
We all know the True Winner
Translation: I don't want Nadal to win anymore slams therefore getting closer to my idol's slam count, so I want Cvac to do the dirty work for me and stop him from doing so.
P.S. No one "deserves" to win squat.
i see your point, HOWEVER, Rafa is not the only player at Roland Garros... There are a number of them who could beat, and have beaten, Djokovic...
Ridiculous poll, can we have tennis pros threads back
I see the #1 seed Bogomolov Jr. lost in the Qualifying tournament and Jiri Vesely is still alive. It would be fun for him to make a little splash this year.
Djokovic is a huge underperformer and underachiever at RG thus far. From 2009-2011 he lost in bad and upset losses (the Federer loss in 2011 being the most acceptable) in each. 2009 and 2011 were both HUGE chances to win the title which he blew.
Where this man falls in the draw will be a huge factor in terms of predicting the eventual winner, he is the only man in history to have taken Nadal to 5 sets at the French Open.
Nice theme for the Fedfarts.........Am sure they'll be beeatching to no end when Rafa wins or loses this FO..........:twisted:
Why would we be *****ing if Rafa lost? I would be extremely happy if Rafa lost....................................................................................................................:twisted:
I sincerely hope he does absolutely nothing that will make you have even the slightest inkling of joy.
when the draw is gonna come out?
Djokovic for FO win.
You know it's going to happen.
That's what I'm saying...........:twisted:
Put djoker in nadas draw--come on frenchies if nadal wins for the eighth time it would be shame for RG for making tailor made courts for him
Owing to the slowing of courts Murray has only one slam title to his name which came at the expense of an extremely gruelling last-man-standing 5 set match and the further aggravation of a career threatening injury.
And how many slams have eluded Federer for the dumbing down of surfaces?
^^off topic , who would murray fans cheer for ?
Wawrinka. Ooops. Ok I like Del Potro. Oh f!
Isner bows out first round.
Novak Djokovic will win FO this year. Just watch.
Will all this bad weather help Djokovic win RG? Nadal only plays well when the sun is shining. Heavy and soaked conditions help Djokovic deal with Nadal's heavy topspin.
Wawrinka confirmed for RG, playing after all:
Good to hear Wawrinka confirmed
What about the weather? Another Monday final?
ok who voted for Andy Murray?
If Djoker gets Ferrer that will be 3 slams in a row. Nothing suspicious about that! :roll:
