yes, i heard it too
to build a complete new venue near Euro-Disney

move it outside france would destroy all, so i guess this are just rumours to make pressure on the FFT to build a new venue

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

Re: French Open Could Leave Roland Garros

They aren't serious, they are saying this all the time but they can't forget the weight of memories and history. The French Open will stay at Roland Garros cause RG rocks !

Pierre-Hugues Herbert - Rafael Nadal - Jeremy Chardy - Thomaz Bellucci - Tommy Robredo - Aljaz Bedene - Simone Bolelli - Pablo Andujar - Lucas Pouille - Ivan Dodig - Nikoloz Basilashvili - Kenny De Schepper - Daniel Brands - Benjamin Mitchell - Maxime Chazal - Jonathan Eysseric - Maxime Teixeira - Noah Rubin - Marc Giner - Adrien Puget - Enzo Couacaud - Ante Pavic - Marcos Giron - David Vega Hernandez - Andrea Pellegrino
Victoria Azarenka - Simona Halep - Angelique Kerber - Tessah Andrianjafitrimo


I only lied cause I didn't want to say the truth

Re: French Open Could Leave Roland Garros

well...i knew that Madrid open's chief asked the ITF/WTA/ATP to make Madrid the 5th grand slam or to take the place of the FO
hopefully FO and RG will be the same in the future

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Re: French Open Could Leave Roland Garros

Luckily the ITF run these and not WTA or Doha/ Dubai would probably be a GS.
