    Nope

    I root for Novak all the time; I definitely wouldn't count him out.

    Novak is the biggest tool on the circuit. What an absolute loser. Yes, he's incredibly talented, but there was a period before he became number one that he was just the world's biggest asshole. Always had an excuse for every loss, was a jerk to his opponent's in interviews.

    I'm flying the flag for Sam Stosur. I hope she wins this year. As for the men, I hope Nadal wins. I like him. He does need to wash his hair a little more though.

    . . . I was indifferent to Nadal until his comment about dogs: "I don't trust their intentions."

    Now he is in the Pantheon . . .

    He might still be able to do round16/quaterfinals at US Open or Wimbledon if he plays very well. But definitely throwing the towels for going back in the Top 5 or winning another major

    Don't get me started on Serena, it was her tournament to win and the pressure got to her.

    Round 2:

    I love Venus (we share the same birthday icon_smile.gif ). But I think it may be time for her to retire. She had a great run; 7 Slams. No easy feat.

    Serena? Nervous? Are YOU joking? She just had a shit match. It happens. Not to mention Razzano played an incredible match. Before her loss she was 46-0 in first round matches in Grand Slams. Why would she feel the pressure on this particular match? Also, she's had an incredible run up to the tournament. She said it herself after the match, "I didn't play like I've been practicing." She's allowed to lose.

    Rafa and Stosur for the crowns.

    I don't know how much I believe that. Serena really has not been the same since her pulmonary embolism surgery... yes, she had a few great tournaments including the finals at the USO, but even so she really has not had the same mental tenacity as before. I am sure that being 30 plays a bit into it, but I feel that her surgery and "near death experience" got to her more than any other factor.

    yea, plus when u miss ALL that time from tennis and you hit the 30 age mark I think you start to lose those fast twitch muscles. Its tougher to get that first step back that ya had when u were 21

    Yes, even though Serena was 2 points from winning in the 2nd set, she just didn't seem like herself. I do wonder if the chair umpire had any impact on her because it's the same umpire who penalized her the point at the US Open for the hindrance call. Again, though, she really should have closed it out in that 2nd set tiebreak.

    Venus also looked completely uninterested in her loss to Radwanska. I wonder if there's more to this story in the Williams family.

    I'd love Fed to win, too. He had his chance to run away with it last year, but Nadal fought back after losing the first set. And I'd love to see him get back at #1 and break Sampras' weeks-at-#1 record. He deserves it.

    Yeah but you all forget that this is Rolland Garros, how many times has Serena and Venus burned out in the 3rd or 4th round and everyone calling their careers over, then just a few months later in Wimbledon, they're pounding down aces and winning championships.

    I'd also love Fed to get back to #1 but there's just something off him mentality wise when he plays nadal or djokovic these days.
