Roger can't win tournaments in French speaking cities!

    The real reason Roger lost in Montreal -

    Roger has NEVER won a Grand Slam or Masters Series event in a French speaking city (notably, in Roland Garros, Monte Carlo, Montreal, or Paris).

    In fact, with the exception of Rome (and Italian is way close to French) he's won EVERY Grand Slam and Masters Series event aside from these.

    So despite the fact that he speaks French, maybe the German Swiss in him has unresolved issues? :)

    Maybe he just doesn't like the french.

    He won a toronto title a while back though. I was there, live. Toronto KINDA speaks French.

    Safin hits softer than the Williams Sisters...What is your point?

    Is Roger Federer Brazilian? Cause I think I know him. He sucks at tennis.

    Huh?

    Once again, you jack up every thread you enter. Get a clue, get a life...and as Dr. Phil says...

    ..."Get real.."

    So let me get this straight. You have been banned before for abusive behavior and yet you again attack people for no apparent reason other than they disagree with you. I think you need to pull your panties out of a bunch and go take a chill pill and then come back when you have calmed down. :)

    No, don't let her come back. Find her address, send the FBI, and arrest her. Send her to Iraq and find her own way home....!!!!;)

    I'll bet...that your ntrp was rated by your best friend, who was feeling generous and bumped you up from a 3.0. ;)

    He should enter a smaller French tournament to get some practice. There are a ton of them in France (Marseille, Metz, and Lyon).

    Why would he play a small tournament unless they pay him lots of money to be there? I doubt they have the money to dish out that Dubai does every year to Federer and Nadal.

    To get practice in french speaking cities. The original PM says he tends not to win in French speaking cities. I knew someone was going to mention appearance fees. There was no prior mention of money.

    I know what you were trying to say. But I am just stating the obvious. He gets a ton of money to be at the tournaments he plays every year. Something would seriously have to happen to him for him to change his schedule. You see what I'm saying?
