Will the ROLAND GARROS FINAL decide who will be the better BELGIAN?

Is this final going to be a definitive turning point in both their careers?

Will the winner go on to have the better carrer? Remember Serena won the first slam of the Williams sisters rivalry and she has ended up being the better player. Will it be the same case here? Or will the loser have the determination to bounce back and prove themselves superior?

It'll prove who's the best on clay...and while clay is the second most important surface after hardcourt (i.e. most tournaments etc.) It's the most different from any other surface, ie. rebound ace, indoors, grass, and hardcourt are all more closely related to each other then any of them is to clay, so winning RG over the other one won't prove a hell of a lot...if one of them won AO or USO over the other it would prove alot. Wimby not so much =P

no kim is still worldchampion and reached this final. the only thing that speaks against kim is wimbledon since she played so bad last year. so it's either even or kim takes the lead

other then that no way the masters is the most important thing when my retired fav didn't win it but when my current fav wins it then it's suddenly less important

no way

consistency all the way

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

I don't really mean straight away. For example when Serena won her first slam, Venus was still the better player that year and for the next two years. I am talking more in the long run.

It won't decide the long run, just who gets to be called best right now.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.
