Sigh..every year since 1997 I have enjoyed watching Arantxa at RG..I always loved it this time of year considering Arantxa's results. I mean, she has had such magic here and I bet all Arantxa fans have felt it. Paris was like a 2nd home for her and it's sad that she won't be here playing this year. Although I have other favorite tennis players it still isn't exactly the same feelings of expectations as it was before..
Arantxa has an impressive 72-13 W/L record at the French Open. Aside from the fact of reaching the SF's, she had made it to the QUARTERFINALS or better from 1987-2000! (except 1990) That spans 13 years!
