most of you prolly dont care but ive been watching non stop and have a few observations. 1. is it just me or is the french croud pretty rude and disrespectful. like often times turning on a player for calling out a mark or questioning a call or being upset because an umpire cant remember which mark is which. and then holding a grudge til the end of the match and even boo'ing the player that wins!! for example the nalbandian match. nalbandian hit a clear ace. just becasue davydenko didnt play the ball doesnt mean he gets another chance at a serve. and last year didnt the french embrace nadal. and now they cant wait to see him lose? whats that about? every time he points out a ball that was long he gets boo'ed to death! wheres the love france?? 2. FINALLY vaidisova is winning matches she should. i know mauresmo pretty much choked like usual. but ive been waiting for a whole year for her to start beating top 10 players. 3. anyone know a good therapist? mauresmo is looking! hook a brotha up! 4. finally some other young players are breaking out of the pack! at the beginning of the tournament i remember them breaking down the list of hot teens. and djokovic was at the bottom of that list. wow has he made a splash. now i think we might be able to put him at the top of that list. mofils showed good guts but also some luck this week with the 3 straight 5 setters. they werent against that tough of opponents. blake on clay, norman? seriously?, and andy murray cant win 5 set matches, this is a known fact. 5. i cant see hingis as a serious threat yet. everyone keeps talking about how shes gonna BEAT EVERYONE! but sorry im not for the hype. when shes toughing it out against peer and then losing in straight sets to a "i cant wait to retire" and "im not that great on clay" cjisters, i cant quite jump on the hype bandwagon. shes had really easy draws in majors so far. lets not jump the gun to say shes the new #1 just yet y'all. 6. sharapova sucks on clay. we all know this. but watch out for her because she wants that wimby title like NO ONE else this year. she might just beat venus williams over the head with her racquet for it. 7. is it just me or does nadal look IMPATIENT! this year? hes trying to end a lot of points pretty quickly! hes not the "im gonna hit every single ball you hit back and you better somehow hit nothing but winners against me" nadal we all grew to know and love. i like that hes being more aggresive but trying to end points with a winner after 2 shots isnt going to win it for him. 8. i still hate leyton hewitt. 9. cljisters should just go away. anyone who says they basically dont wanna be playing tennis should not be getting celebrated as a champion. 10. can we fire ALL of the commentators PLEASE. i honestly did not have an issue with anyone til this major. with chris "can i possibly talk about everyone else in the tournament while im interviewing you, (insert anyones name he interviews here)" fowler. or brad "i know more about tennis then you because i TALK MUCH LOUDER" gilbert. if i have to hear them two do one more match together ill scream. i agree with mary saying no coachs on saturday. because that takes any mental aspect out of the game. if you need someone to tell you how to turn a match around you prolly arent playing pro tennis in the first place. but i completely disagree with johnny mac with the no injury time out thing. hes preaching about how having coachs would make the tennis better. but isnt having someone come out for a few minutes to tape up an ankle or stretch out a cramp also helping a match go on longer at a competitive level? i think that the time outs should be shorter but definatly shouldnt just get rid of them. so lets just fire everyone working for espn and nbc please and thank you. ok im done ranting. thanks to those who actually read it.
