MTF server crashed; overall French Open thought?

What do you think of both the women's and men's tournament?

Womenís was a little disappointing, because none of my favourites made it past the 4th Round and the Final was just terrible, I didn't even bother watching. I thought the Menís was very good, some excellent matches throughout the two weeks. Overall the Menís was definitely more entertaining as it always seems to be.

VAMOS RAFA!!!!

You are the best!!!

"I dream of people watching me holding up my third Wimbledon trophy... Most of all I dream of being a good person to all that are inspired by me I dream of having girls, women, boys, men being fond of not only what I have done on the tennis court, or on the big screen or what I design but I dream of what people think of me as a person.
I dream that people think of me as a giving person as a person that
loves life and is fun to be around." - Serena

I think the FO was pretty awful to be honest. The women's event had many players out of form and really only Vaidisova's last three matches made the tournament exciting. The men's was was far too predictable and Nadal just sends everyone to sleep.

For me, Henin-Hardenne and Nadal were always going to win and the whole tournament just wasn't very good.

Roll on the grass court season.

I thought the men's final would be exciting but to my suprise it was actually quite boring. The quality of play was terrible if not worser than the women's final.

Bad matches all around, and, yes, Nicole was the saving grace, pretty much.

A horrible tournament.

I'm happy Nadal won though

Only one really good match that I managed to see and that was Matthieu vs. Nadal.

Sharapova vs. Safina was perhaps the best match on the women's side IMO.

Nadal match made a comeback with what I thought a decent 3rd and 4th set... you could just feel the intensity coming from Nadal... women's was just well, women's!
