ROLAND GARROS 2006: Poll, news articles etc...

Sorry I had to open this for different reasons

1. last time I opened a GS thread it was 2005 USOpen no need to say more
2. I'm actually going to RG this year and it's kind of a dream come true
3. I'm french and it's the french open so there! :

let the predictions begin

The poll will be opened up until sunday may 28th and here is the english version of the official website

Le temps de la colère, les femmes
Notre temps, est arrivé
Connaissons notre force, les femmes
Découvrons-nous des milliers !

L'hymne des femmes

I didn't know that RG started on Sunday this year, interesting. Hope Kim doesn't play on Sunday.

yes it starts on sunday only on show court so there won't be more than 12 matches which is weird... plus the charity day on saturday 27th where I hope to see Kim

Well now that i've seen kim play at rome, i can safely say she will win RG because she can't possibly play as bad as she has this week.

I can't quite get my head around it because she played so well at warsaw.

by the way for those who are wondering, I didn't put a non jinxing option because I didn't put one at the USOpen (call it superstition but I don't care)

Yeah and then she took a week off after Warsaw so lost the momentum from there. She started afresh again. If she hadn't taken the break she could have kept the form but didn't.

Ok I've checked the US Open thread and actually, by then, I had not vote so I won't vote either this time

"Ca s’apprend par la souffrance, ça s’apprend par les déceptions, ça s’apprend par la densité du mal que ça te fait, plus ça te fait mal et plus ça te fait grandir. Y a des moments où tu te dis je ne vais pas le supporter, ça, ça fait trop mal, et pourtant tu passes au travers."
