Very exciting Roland Garros so far!

What do you think? Serena v Klara, Maria v Nadia and now we have Venus v Lucie, the sequel to look forward to tomorrow....hope that the excitement can keep at this level as the tournament continues!

Re: Very exciting Roland Garros so far!

Yeh its been grat so far, not often the big names get such a good work out, though they are both coming in under unusual circumstances.

Vee is at risk of having her 2nd straight R2 slam loss though. Thats terrifying, not exciting.

Re: Very exciting Roland Garros so far!

It's been exciting because the ones I wanted to win, won. If it was the other way around, then the draw sucked and the tournament sucked. That being said, there have been some decent early round matches.

Re: Very exciting Roland Garros so far!

Just goes to show the depth of the women's field. Wimbledon and USO likely to be just as exciting.

Re: Very exciting Roland Garros so far!

Credit to both tours. The Safin/Sharapova match today and the Serena match yesterday was tennis of superlative standard.

Long may it continue.

Re: Very exciting Roland Garros so far!

I would DIE if Vee went to a third set that was like 9-7!

I just got nervous even THINKING about it!!!!!!
