Roland Garros


Recommended Posts

you are anti-spanish like all the untilled dutch people,but is not important,the question is :

Why do you have a spanish nickname? change it for a more patriotic one like van der tulip...

After 30 years enduring the dutch turists and theirs drunkenness and vomits in my town (Salou,do you know it? sure) I know what I talking about...

Tot ziens!!!

GO NADAL¡¡¡

GO ALONSO¡¡¡

I know it. Never been there, probably never will so I doubt I'll ever see you. I actually hate the kind of people that behave like that and I feel ashamed they have the same nationality as I do. I actually like Spain a lot. It is just that Mikel gives us a very one dimensional picture of the country which became so annoying I decided to show the other side of the story once in a while.

About my nickname, well I might be a lot more Spanish than people give me credit for...

I read that Nadal won, congratulations.

¡Adios!

Some Canadians showed promise, a Canadian girl won the mixed doubles and a Canadian got into the final of the boys' final and Nestor as always did well.

Nadal owned Federer today.

The rivalry will heat up again at Wimbledon. Can't wait!

No it won't Nadal has never played well on any other serface then clay. Nadal and Federer will probably not even meet at Wimbledon. Federer's only competition will probably Andy Roddick.

I agree, Goethe. I wish they would stop squeezing out grass court tennis. There should be more tournaments played on the grass, not just two or three weeks a year.

So do I! I've always wondered why nearly all the other tournaments save Wimbledon abandoned grass for that horrible clay!! I mean,it looks such a mess! The stuff gets all over the players' clothes and the court has to be swept every half hour or so because the lines quickly get obscured by drifting bits of clay!!

Grass courts look so much cleaner and tidier and the game was,after all,originally called "LAWN TENNIS!" :angry:

My ancestors lived in Spanish territory a few centuries ago.

Well that could have been anywhere from the Netherlands to Italy to most of Central and South America and a good bit of North America as well,plus bits of North Africa and as far away as the Philippines!!!

Can you narrow it down for us a little? B)

Damn, you got me there Mainad. I thought I might get away with it :lol:

So yes, as far as I know most of my ancesters lived in present day The Netherlands when it fell under the rule of the Spanish crown :) I do have at least some Southern French (that's practically Spain ;) ) hugenots and German ancestry on my mothers side.

I'm not a decendend from Sephardic Jews from Spain as far as I know. But The Netherlands has been a melting pot since the late 16th century so who knows. I'll have to check out my family trees.

About Baruch de Spinoza, he lived a stone's trow away from where I live today for a few years. I pass the so called Spinoza House almost daily.

I like clay, I found the tennis is good, though grass is good too.

Grass is my favorite surface. Hardcourt can be hard on my joints sometimes, and I never was a really big fan clay at all.

Nothing wrong with clay court tennis. I just feel that the balance is far too far in favour of clay court play as against other surfaces.

Obviously the same can be said about grass. Without, for instance, a big serve it is almost impossible to win. Some clay court specialists don't even play the grass season because they know they don't stand a chance, just like many grass court specialists don't stand a chance on clay.

The only unbalance I see is that the grass court season only lasts 4 weeks, whereas the clay court season is closer to 10 weeks.

The European clay court season, perhaps, but you can find tournaments being played on clay all year round, while you get only three weeks on grass. To me, this is not right and gives a clear and unfair advantage to the clay court specialists. They can play far more on their preferred surface, be successful and be deemed a better player than a non-clay courter, even though they don't necessarily do as well on the other surfaces.

Why can't there be a balance between surfaces so a relatively equal number of tournaments, particularly at the very top level, are played on all?
