Question Which Players Will Be Booed By The Roland Garros Crowd?

We know the Roland Garros crowd is never one to shy away from booing players so who will feel the wrath this time?

I have a feeling their reaction to Juju will be mixed on opening day. Some will cheer her because she is the defending champ. But there are others that have not forgotten the AO final.

Also when/if Amelie loses, if the crowd feels that she did not give enough effort, they will be booing. Especially if it is an early round loss

I don't think the Roland Garros crowd has ever been very fond of Martina but that is back in the day when she was the favorite and a villian. Hopefully this time around they will embrace her.

Schiavone could easily be booed

Last year after her loss to Ana she slammed a ball into the crowd, and the French fans notice these things. Martina probably will be booed too

NICOLE VAIDISOVA

Dokic - Hantuchova - Zakopalova - Minella - Szavay - Bammer - Safarova
Stanciute - Panova - Gubacsi - Cibulkova - Cirstea - Hofmanova - Cetkovska

vaidisova, is impolite on court. I think she doesn't want to shake hands when she loses

this time there is no dominant player, we expect only the opponents of the french girls to be booed.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

i agree

the french crowd booed Martina specifically in this final against Steffi because of her pueril attitude during this match.....but now they'll see that the new Martina is a lot more matured and cool person
actually i even think they'll cheer for her.....apart obviously if she plays a french player.

Patty might be if she plays Venus and acts like an idiot on the court. Venus might be if she questions calls during her match with Amelie if they play in the qtrs. Amelie might be if she loses before the semis. Maria might be because of her diva-esque stature on the court. Justine might be if she calls an injury time-out if she is losing (reminds the crowd of Oz Open final). The french crowd will boo anyone if they are given the chance to. No-one is safe unfortuantely.

Agreed - i've never been able to figure out the French crowd and i probably never will.

Maybe they just like booing?
