Womens draw is so random. Anyone of 8 could win.

Jesus, there's a thread on this?!

Nadal, Del Potro, and any other Spaniard or Argie - they keep Fuentes busy now that the football season is over!

Edit - obviously he still makes money on TDF etc

Sorry, came home a bit pissed last night.  Ignore rant here and elsewhere.  Instead, look at my new Barcelona rant!

I bet Monfils today at a +450 qoute...I'm on Soderling tomorrow at +260....At least one of the big guns will go down in their next match...maybe both!
Geraint

Mens draw zzzzzz Womens side looks like it will be won by defending champion, which is good for what is left of clay court tennis. Maria double fault on matchpoint  Very Happy

Fantastic prediction as usual.

Why is it whenever i see a chinese sports person do well, i instantly think of drugs?

Interviewed in RG just after Na Li won the semi-final, the Chinese ambassador to France said there were 400 million Chinese who followed the match.

Tomorrow, maybe there will be a billion?  Wink

The wonders of satelite television and the internet.
Geraint

400 million is a slight exaggeration. Theres not even 100 million who would be interested in sport. I think tennis is one of the sports least affected by drugs and hopefully it stays that way. I strongly suspect Nadal. He has probably had to cut back since they improved testing. His rise has perfectly matched Barca.
chardon

The figures were explained today by a Chinese journalist.

He said it's the first time that a Chinese has reached the finals at Roland Garros last Thursday, and the previous days had all the papers and media in China larking about this great NA LI. He said that while Tennis is not actually a big thing in China as table tennis, the Chinese pride of having one of their own excelling in a competition famous in other parts of the world was enormous.

So they followed the match and today, it is expected that many more will be watching.

The match of the decade for me was yesterday's semi final between Federer and Djokovic. Two talented and brilliant players showed what tennis was all about. Federer performing in class and Djokovic ever so brilliant and respectful of his opponent.

Rolland Garros was in a fantastic mood and it's a match I will never forget. I luv these two classy players, Federer and Djokovic. Tomorrow brings in the toro rearing to gore and win. We'll see how it goes.
Geraint

Match of the decade as in the best since last year? I only saw parts of the match, cant be bothered downloading the whole thing, but it seemed that Federer was near his best and serving well, while Djoker made more errors than usual. If it was better than their US Open semi 5 set classic last yr then it must have been one heck of a match. The clay give Roger more time to run around forehand and neutralises Djoker's power advantage, which was enough to make it an even contest.

This will be Na's best chance to get Asia's first GS win, but unless she is perfect I cant see her bashing her way past Fran's experience and clever slicing game.
Geraint

I hope Nadal has some fatigue and that makes it a closer contest. Roger will need a bit of luck, but at least he looks up for it. Will come down to who wins the first set.
chardon

And  Li Na makes history! The first Chinese to win a tennis Grand chelem. Also the first Asian to do so.

Bravo!!!!

Boogerd_Fan

she shouldve shaved Very Happy
Geraint

Her serving was incroyable. No way she was going to lose if her opponent could not return it.
chardon

There they go!  Cool

Allez Roger! Allez Nadal!

chardon


Rafael Nadal wins 6th Roland Garros Cup!


Bravo!!!



In here, that would raise eyebrows, wouldn't it? It does in French forums...But hey! Maybe he's just an extraterrestial according to the commentators, so no surprizes there! Laughing
Geraint

He looks so tired, he must be drug-free. Roger is fking useless these days but it took Dr Fuentes to finally defeat him.
