I'm so excited for Roland Garros coverage!!

This time of year is always my favorite.. all tennis, all day, for 2 whole weeks! I love waking up at 5 AM, having a nice delicious breakfast, then going to watch first round matches until midday while lounging around & snacking on fruit and the likes.

This time for me is very therapeutic.. I am able to forget about all my worries & duties, and just seclude myself in the tennis world. Sometimes I don't eat for the whole 2 weeks because I become so enthralled with the enjoyment of it all. (okay, I'm kidding ) It's especially enjoyable due to the fact that the US gets NO coverage at all from Miami until the French Open. So it's like a heroine addict in rehab for 3 months, getting a whole 2 week supply of dope and using it all during that time frame.

But really, this is my favorite 2 week period throughout the year, and I just can't wait to watch all the great tennis & surprises to come!

Hehehe you must be a true fan to get up at 5am! I can't wait either particularly as we can get full coverage of Roland Garros this year at least it'll be on at the nicer time of 9/10am!!

I share your nostalgia! I feel the same way. I live and breathe tennis for two whole weeks during the slams, blocking off the rest of the world. Can't wait! Three more days!

U.S. coverage of anything tennis sucks. We're gonna have to watch hype-roddick and hype-ova who suck on clay.

ROCK ON:
elena dementieva, serena williams, caroline wozniacki, ana ivanovic
david nalbandian, rafael nadal, andy murray, gael monfils, jo-wilfried tsonga

I don't mind watching those type of matches either (except when Roddick actually makes it past the 4th round, that's just too much Roddick, but I doubt that will happen) because it's so fun to cheer for the underdogs more than it is to cheer for your actual favorites. Well, in some cases. Maybe that's why Dementieva is one of my top favorites, every match she plays in, she seems fit in with the underdog category instead of the favorite.

We'll see every Federer match...every Nadal match...probably every Venus match...every Sharapova and Roddick match if they play...most of Hingis' matches...and other stupid men's matches that nobody wants to watch because other than Sharapova & Williams, women's tennis pretty much doesn't exist for Espn

i know that feeling. Dementieva would be an underdog against ANYONE in the top 10, whether she's ranked above or below them. I love watching her on TV. I first saw her in the U.S. Open '04 semifinal against Capriati and I fell in love with her.

I hope they show some of her, but they didn't last year. They showed Lindsay , Hype-Roddick , Hypeova and then understandably Federer and Nadal.

I decided to take only one class instead of two at school this summer in order to be able to watch tennis all the time.

Me either. For those two weeks that ESPN has coverage, I just live for tennis and breate tennis. It's just so refreshing, to have that much coverage when we have nothing apart from Slams.

I get up at 5AM too. I'm pretty much done with school, so I might stay home a couple of days next week, to watch.

well i prefer men's tennis to women's, so i don't mind ESPN's coverage usually, but they always show Roddick, and he's just not that enjoyable to watch. I'll enjoy some noob own him on clay though.

they will show blake since blake is now a top player and that's always a good thing. james is fun to watch except for when he tries for the return winner EVERY TIME he sees a second serve
