Re: 2017 Roland Garros Mixed Doubles Draw

Because after hopeless French wildcards the next options are:

1. Celebrity wildcards (like Steffi Graf/John McEnroe at Wimbledon one year).

But as we have seen the French are not friendly to...

Re: SI writer Frank Deford dies

His books on Bill Tilden and Billie Jean King are both classics of tennis writing.

RIP Frank.

Re: Roland Garros: until what time they can play?

Officials are not doing a good job reigning in the players. The lady doing the Brady/Mladenovic match was atrocious in letting Kiki walk all over her.

Zverev-Verdasco could have easily finished...

Re: Who is the best looking lady left at roland garros?

LOL. Kiki Mladenovic-while she is still in it.

La Reine de drama-good style ("That French chick is rockin that dress" was how I woman I know put it) and the belle of the event.

Re: 2017 Roland Garros Doubles List?

Great thread:)

2 questions.

1. Why did GOERGES Julia (GER) 45 27 STRYCOVA Barbora (CZE) 21 11 38 Out withdraw. Does anyone know why?

2. Who were the original #16 seeds? Is it 16...

Re: Does anyone else believe Ash Barty may become no. 1?

Nodding my head reading Binky's post. These two areas need the most work.

Re: Does anyone else believe Ash Barty may become no. 1?

The whole "lets drop off the tour, get my head together and play cricket episode" suggests emotionally she's not up to that level.

So no-not #1 material.

That doesn't mean she can't have a lot...

Re: Strasbourg QF : Stosur def CSN 7-6(7-5) 6-4

Good for her-she has also set a record by being the aussie #1 for 450 consecutive weeks!

Re: Halep is '50/50' for Roland Garros after ankle scan

In a weird way an injury could help her if it isn't too severe. Being in a little pain can force a player to concentrate on and ignore a lot of other non-essentials.

Re: Players with balanced forehand and backhand?

Great post. I always thought Dementieva would have bagged a slam if she had a decent backhand down the line.

Re: FO Q1: [1] Sara Errani d. S. Cakarevic 6-1 6-0

Agreed-but then 2 time former champs also get the cold shoulder.

Re: What would be more significant: Halep winning RG17, or Halep NOT winning RG17?

At the rate this tour is headed I fear you may be right.

But hopefully someone in the top 20 will win it and then not be a massive disappointment for months on end.

Svitolina has to think she...

Re: On Wildcards for Doping Violators

I would love to see that implemented.

The whole French giving a wild card to Australians in return for a quid pro quo wildcard at the Aussie is wretched IMO.
