Who’s currently the best male player in world? (I’ll give you a hint – it’s Roger Federer). Who was the best player before Federer? Pete Sampras. They have combined for 0 French Open final appearances while winning at least 2 of each of other grand slams. And for some reason I don’t think it’s coincidence. Let’s face it – clay court tennis is about endurance, not about skill. If you enjoy watching 5 hours of Montilla vs. Montanes – fine, it’s your prerogative. But enough crying already that Sampras, Federer, MCcenroe, Connors not winning French open is something negative – I have even more respect for them since they never did win Fraud Open.
