I guess Roland Garros is the biggest clay event so I anticipate that. :)

Clay is the one surface when I look forward to every event.

My faves are Charleston (yay green clay), Rome and RG.

Roland Garros. Theres nothing like a GS, and its the only one i get to see on tv. Other than that, I like Rome coz its a big and important tournament.

I guess you mean 'Allez' (pronounced I-EEEEEEE), which means 'Come on!

I quite like Monte Carlo, actually, although that may well be because the semis are on my birthday this year and so that tournament usually brings good memories for me.

No I know what allez means I mean the kinda of ohh-waa! sound they all do it especially when a lob or something is hit.

OK, I'm going to make another guess :) I think it is 'oui', which young people pronounce 'ueeee' (maybe a French poster should be answering this :confused: )

No its kinda a noise that the Ewoks off Star Wars make, perhaps they are actually saying something, but I understand quite a bit of French though.

To me its just some weird noise, I just want to know why they do it.

Normally, it's the Madrid Open, since I am from Madrid. And for many years, I have gone to see some tennis that week. This year, and also last year, since I am not living in Madrid, I haven't felt so excited about it... I guess now I can't wait for B'ham since that is my "home" tourney... but that's on grass, so it doesn't count ;)
